Om NaMo Naaraayanaaya
Dear venerable group members:
The point of " meat " was referred, to reason out Vaidehi's grand father 
forbidding her from eating in a non brahmin's house.
Sundar may be absolutely right in his mention of sacrifice etc. but what 
about the prevailing practice in the generation of vaidehi's 
grandfather?
I am sure there would have been some brahmin meat eaters in that 
generation too but that would have been an exception rather than a rule.
Subham
