(IN) Apartment blocks in city turn pure vegetarian
CHENNAI: When Nirmala Narayan decided to buy her own house in Chennai, she went looking for a vegetarian-only apartment complex. "I am a vegetarian by choice. I cannot bear the smell of fish or meat and would prefer not to have non-vegetarian neighbours," she says.
It didn't take Narayan long to zero in on an all-vegetarian block coming up in Vepery. A number of builders in Chennai are promoting vegetarian-only apartment complexes. Other builders are setting apart certain blocks or floors for vegetarians. Suresh Jain, managing director of Vijay Shanthi Builders, has launched two vegetarian-only apartment complexes in the city.
