I recently traveled to India on a research trip and got a lot more than I bargained for. There is truth in the saying "Keep Korma and Curry On." India is a controlled and chaotically enriching assault on the senses which has altered my perception on reality forever. I would go as far as to say that it quite literally blew my mind.
I'm not a rabid steak chaser either, but I definitely do not disdain meat. Yet I did not miss it at all during my stay in Bangalore. I was aware that vegetarianism was not uncommon in India, but I was not aware of the actual impact of such a dietary choice in both domestic and commercial environments.
