Maulik has always been interested in reducing suffering in the world and help improve the well being of the less fortunate. Here's his message: We usually think of suffering in terms of human poverty and disease. While most people acknowledge non-human animal suffering, the scale of this is enormous and usually not comprehensible for most of us.

I think it is also important to consider the suffering of these animals and try to help reduce it.
