It is and that's why there needs to be a law to protect non-smokers from inhaling smoke from cigarettes making them unwilling passive smokers and susceptible to the same problems that smokers face. In public places and shared areas, smokers have to be considerate to non-smokers. Since it is too much to ask from a person to be considerate, they make laws. Not just in India, but world wide. However smokers can still smoke all they want in private areas or in designated smoke zones.

I welcome this move but i ony hope it gets implemented with an iron hand, something like they have implemented the No drinking and driving rule. Kudos.
Exactly Gogi bhai, people should ask those who do not smoke & have a problem with second hand smoke how bad it feels. I'm all for this move.

I don't mind if people smoke around me but when it becomes too much, it really really causes immense discomfort & at times can become unbearable.

That's right, that's the attitude, keep it up young man. And pray why should other suffer in a pub/restaurant/office because you can't control your urge to light up?

My dear man, ever heard of "your right to swing your arms stops where my nose begins?" Smoke all you want in the confines of your home, in your car with the windows up, but don't force me to inhale the second hand smoke you blow out. Is that not a reasonable request?

It is a free country, but freedom is not absolute. It is limited by reasonable restrictions and regulations.

Think again. The law will not punish smokers for smoking in a public area, it will punish the OWNER of that area. So the law enforcement now lies in the hands of the coffee shop owner where you want to have a light after coffee.

No thumbs down buddy. I am all happy with this. I think when I created this thread the "thumbs down" was chosen by default.

This is the only way a law can be implemented. Otherwise we always have dudes like someone who wrote above who always consider them to be kings.

Good move by the goverment and i hope it is implemented seriously.The law stipulating that the owners of the establishment will be punished is a good one,already saw on Monday a quater joint in Mumbai opposite city light fish market carrying a board (No Smoking Zone)

It is a free country, and i have the right to breathe fresh air in public surroundings.
Im not coming to your house to stop you from smoking, Just as long as you don't blow smoke in my face

Wonderful move, I have been waiting for October 2nd and also the Hyderabadi Police have started their website. So lets see how the police make use of this act.

At last, we are going to have smoke free team-bhp meets. Are we???

I think the hyderabadi team-bhp folks have not seen this thread till or that they dont want to attract infractions!!!
