    One of the world's most famous vegetarians -Sir Paul McCartney-- is urging India to declare a national Vegetarian Day to celebrate meat-free living and compassion toward animals, according to The Associated Press.

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says McCartney sent a letter to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying such a day could save animals while helping to protect both the environment and people's health. McCartney's letter says a vegetarian day "it would be a celebration of life."

    I am a vegetarian and have been for 18 years, so I definitely support McCartney's efforts. But I also don't care if other people eat meat. It is just a personal choice!

    The U.N. food agency in 2003 estimated 42 percent of India's 1.2 billion people are vegetarian, due mostly to financial and religious concerns. Strict Hindus and Jains do not eat meat.

    What do you think of McCartney's efforts? Are you a carnivore?
