Never believe a man who promises while wielding a smoke!


The latest factsheet by WHO on Tobacco consumption states the following –

  1. Tobacco kills up to half of its users.
  2. Tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year.
  3. More than five million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while more than 600,000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.
  4. Unless urgent action is taken, the annual death toll could rise to more than eight million by 2030.
  5. Nearly 80% of the world’s one billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries.

During my childhood years, I always carried a book with me wherever I went – The Bhagwad Gita. Though I’m sure I understood very little of the book’s great wisdom underlying in the pages, I had heard from my parents and teachers that the book could solve all the problems of life, that the Warrior Arjuna represented us and the book represented Krishna and the wisdom pearls inside were all that we needed to lead a noble and happy life.
