Ramesh In The Restaurent

RAMESH: LET'S GO TO THE HAMBURGER PLACE.

ANIL: CAN WE GET VEGETARIAN FOOD THERE?

RAMESH: YES, I CAN.

(THEY WENT TO A NEARBY HAMBURGER PLACE, ANIL AND RAMESH LOOKED AT THE MENU. ROGER, THE WAITER, CAME TO TAKE THEIR ORDER).

ROGER: ARE YOU READY TO ORDER?

ANIL: (POINTING TO THE MENU) IS THIS A VEGGIE BURGER OR A HAMBURGER?

ROGER: THIS IS A MEAT BURGER, BUT WE CAN MAKE A VEGGIE BURGER FOR YOU.

ANIL: I WOULD LIKE A VEGGIE BURGER.

ROGER: (WITH SURPRISE) WHY DON' T YOU EAT A BURGER WITH MEAT IN IT?

ANIL: WE ARE JAINS, AND, JAINS DO NOT EAT MEAT.

(RAMESH INTERRUPTS ANIL)

RAMESH: AS A JAIN, WE RESPECT ALL LIFE. WE CONSIDER ANIMAL LIFE AS GOOD AS OUR OWN LIFE.

ANIL: JUST AS WE DON'T LIKE TO GET HURT OR KILLED, ANIMALS, BIRDS, AND FISH DON'T LIKE TO GET HURT OR KILLED EITHER.

ROGER: OH! THAT IS INTERESTING. IT MAKES SENSE. I WILL GET THE VEGETARIAN BURGERS FOR YOU.

(WHILE GETTING THE VEGGIE BURGER, ROGER ADMIRED THEIR LOVE AND CARE FOR LIFE.)

ANIL AND RAMESH WERE HAPPY AND SATISFIED.

JAINS ARE VERY CAREFUL OF WHAT THEY EAT. THEY TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT THEIR FOOD DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY MEAT PRODUCTS, LARD, SEAFOOD, CHICKEN BROTH, OR EGGS, IN IT.

 

Questions:

1) Why did Anil agree to go to the restaurant?

2) What do Jains check before ordering any food?

3) What did Roger ask Anil?

4) What did Ramesh tell Roger?

5) How did Roger feel about Jains being vegetarian?

6) Name some of the foods Jains should not order?
