My journey with Climate Warrior taught me a lot of things and I just didn't feel like eating meat anymore. I was never heavy on non-vegetarian, but I took a call in the lockdown. It was actually something that happened organically. It's been six months, and I'm good, guilt-free and feel physically strong as well."
