I just wonder why the health ministry is so keen to ban smoking in public places.
Mr. Salve, Mr. Jaitely tried to put a stay on the ban arguing the definition of public places.
Additional Solicitor General Mr. Gopal Krishnan argued against the stay on ban saying that Smoking is injurious to health..hahahaha news huh?
If the ministry is so concerned about citizen’s health why not ban selling of cigarettes??
Nagesh was a chain smoker, but he never smoked at his home. After the ban on smoking in public places got effective, he started smoking at his home. Nagesh just can’t quit smoking, how hard he tries. He can’t go out and smoke because he is afraid of being caught.
Nagesh is having altercations with his pregnant wife daily, she has unwillingly became a chain smoker too, a passive chain smoker, their yet to be born child has started smoking before even getting born.
The story is just one aspect of the ban. I myself do not like smoking or smokers, but I feel the ban is not justified.
P.S: Cigarette smoking is injurious to health.
