According to the religious tenets of Manu, Shukra, Vishnu, Yagyavalkya, man should indulge in consumption after feeding guests, servants, helpless persons, animals and birds. Kautilya even said that those who do not feed the children, the parents, the widows and the daughters should be punished by the state. Instructions have been given in Atharva Veda that all people should have equal food and drink. He believes that the person with high character considers the entire world as his family.
