Gelatin or gelatine is a

Gelatin or gelatine is a translucent, colorless, brittle (when dry), flavorless solid substance, derived from collagen obtained from various animal by-products. It is commonly used as a gelling agent in food. 
Gelatin may be used as a stabilizer, thickener, or texturizer in foods such as yogurt, cream cheese, and margarine; it is used, as well, in fat-reduced foods to simulate the mouthfeel of fat and to create volume without adding calories.
Gelatin is used for the clarification of juices, such as apple juice, and of vinegar.
The consumption of gelatin from particular animals may be forbidden by religious or cultural rules. Vegans and many vegetarians choose not to eat foods containing gelatin made from animals.
One - two the most common vegetarian alternatives to gelatin . .
Use agar agar (kanten). Agar agar is a traditional substitute for gelatin in many recipes and basically it substitutes at a ratio of an equal amount of agar agar for gelatin when substituting.
Use arrowroot. Arrowroot is a starch from the roots of a tropical herb. It is good for thickening an acidic liquid. It is also good for thickening jellies/gelled substances; indeed, the Victorians used to make an arrowroot jelly.
Then for all those are comfortable eating Jelly made from gelatin?
Jelly is one of the quickest and easiest desserts to make.
Jelly is an easy dessert that can be enjoyed on its own, in a fruit salad, cake or pudding.
All u have to do is Mixing, Setting and Tipping & storing.
Use 1 cup boiling water to 5 Tsp of jelly, known as gelatine.
Avoid adding fresh pineapple, kiwi fruit rather add cooked or canned fruits to the jelly liquid.
Do not use fresh fruits, as the enzymes in the fruit will prevent the gelatin from setting.
When preparing a layered jelly mould, chill each layer until it is slightly set but not firm, before adding the next layer of jelly to set.
Once set jelly can be kept in the fridge covered for up to 3 days.

Need Strawberry flavor jelly & Mint flavor jelly (not fully set )
Very small cut fruits like Apple, Pineapple, Banana, Kiwi, Grapes, any other seasonal fruits available.
Prepare both the jelly as per packet instructions.
Do not let the jelly set ( fully).
Mix the cut fruits with honey or any juice.
Set first the strawberry layer n then put in the fridge for 5 min.
Set the 2nd layer of fruits, and the 3rd layer will be mint jelly,
again put in to fridge for 5 min.
The last layer is again of strawberry jelly.
Keep in fridge until served.
