Smoking in closed public placesThere's one rule that is in force all over India, even in the farthest corners of vast country. This is the rule forbiding smoking in bus and cabs. Breathing in the smoke that someone else blows out is even more harmful to health than smoking itself.
Yet in the buses in our town, where people struggle even for a place to stand, there are some who hold on to a cigarette or beedi above their heads. They stretch their heads up to puff on their stick of poison in the middle of the crowd.
Why the state hasn't forbaded smoking in public places? Can you throw a light on this topic.
