Vegetarian festival kicks off
Vegetarians nationwide have joined the Je Festival, which starts today and runs until October 13. Vegetarians in Lamphun don white clothes, as a vow to maintain the purity of mind during the period.
The number of vegetarians in Buri Ram is reportedly 20 per cent higher than last year, as people are more health-conscious.
Thongluan Nanthasaen, a food vendor in Kalasin, said that cooked Je food price is raised from last year due to the higher prices of vegetables. From Bt20-Bt25, a pack of food is sold at Bt25-Bt30.
