Vegetarianism was the very first article that I submitted to Elephant Journal. A day after my submission, I got an enthusiastic letter of response. I was accepted to be an official indi journalist for them. I was thrilled! There were two other writer friends of mine who, in the past, had applied to them, but unfortunately didn’t get in. They heard that I got approved, so for the second time, they pitched in their article, but unfortunately, they were denied again.
