Seema Goes Grocery Shopping

MOTHER: LET'S GO TO THE GROCERY STORE.

SEEMA: ALL RIGHT, MOM.

(SEEMA AND HER MOTHER GO TO THE GROCERY STORE.)

THEY PICK UP VEGETABLES, COOKIES, FRUIT, AND MILK.

SEEMA: MOM, CAN I GET ICE CREAM?

(WITHOUT WAITING FOR AN ANSWER, SHE RAN TO THE FREEZER AND BROUGHT THE ICE CREAM)

MOTHER: SEEMA, DID YOU CHECK THE INGREDIENTS?

SEEMA: NO, I DID NOT . SHOULD I?

MOTHER: REMEMBER, WE LEARNED THE OTHER DAY THAT SOME ICE-CREAM HAS EGGS IN IT.

AS A JAIN WE DON'T EAT ANY FOOD THAT CONTAINS EGGS, ANIMAL FATS LIKE LARD, ANIMAL SHORTENING, OR GLYCERIN.

SEEMA: OH YEAH, I FORGOT. LET ME CHECK THE INGREDIENTS.

SORRY, MOM, IT CONTAINS EGGS. LET ME PUT IT BACK. CAN I GET ANOTHER BRAND OF ICE CREAM.

MOTHER: YES, SEEMA, BUT ALWAYS BE SURE TO READ THE INGREDIENTS.

SEEMA: YES, MOM, I PROMISE I WILL BE MORE CAREFUL.

(PAUSE)

SEEMA: MOM, DOES THIS MEAN THAT I SHOULD CHECK THE INGREDIENTS OF BREAD, COOKIES, CANDIES, CANNED FOODS AND FROZEN FOODS, ALSO?

MOTHER: YES, SEEMA, WE SHOULD ALWAYS CHECK THE INGREDIENTS OF EVERYTHING WE BUY.

(SEEMA WAS HAPPY THAT SHE LEARNED SOMETHING THAT WOULD HELP HER BE A BETTER JAIN.)
