Indeed, TOI’s efforts of allotting the entire page and so many informative articles on Tobacco are commendable. Apt adverts along with articles will definitely hit at the heart… oops, fingers and lips – of tobacco addicts.
It is important to note that smoking kills not just smoker but non-smoker as well. If such campaign continues hope someday government will ban tobacco and tobacco manufacturing companies.
The ‘hookas’ should not be excluded from the campaign as they are suffocating, too. Let’s give up partial ban on tobacco at certain places or for certain age group but ban it completely.
Hope such important issues will be given more space in TOI. Let’s give others some fresh air to breath at least.
