I lend my support to the smokers...

I don't smoke and I don't intend to as of now but I totally support the smokers' rights which are severely abused by the so-called Human Rights activists and the anti-smoking lobby and so this post goes out to all the smokers in their support--

























I wish all of you who support the smokers' rights, link this image on their blogs, somewhere. It doesn't matter if the authorities see this or this post inspires a revolution that will change the world because in all probability it won't but I still insist on taking a stand. I also know there won't be any revolution coming our way anytime soon but what the heck! Like we care! But we still insist on showing our unapologetic support to freedom!

Supporting a cause, that is what suprises me!

smoke as much as you wish! just don't exhale.

This is interesting. I am not a smoker (never have, and likely never will), but I agree with your stand in some respects.

Would you apply this framework to alcohol consumption as well? You know, if smoking in public places is such a big deal, then what about its distant cousin? :P

Cheers!

Ha ha :D On a not-so-serious note, yeah, let's all get out and drink! :D

On a serious note, I wouldn't stand for drinking in public places, people kinda lose their cool and their sanity and their sense of propriety in the lack of sobriety :) (ooh, i rhymed a difficult word like propriety!) :D

I don't think a guy driving under the influence of a cigarette ran over anybody :)

Btw, interesting bollywood blog, liked the dissection of mastam mastam :D

LOL, I agree with you on drinking in public places as well. And it's hard to argue the risk involved (or lack thereof) in driving under the influence of a cigarette :)

Oh, and Bollywood's been such a welcome avenue to stay in touch with Indian culture, since I've spent most of my life away. And I try with the translations, for my music-loving non-Hindi speaking peers :) It's a great learning experience for the self as well. Thank you for your comment!

I'll be back! Cheers!

Ah, trust me Bollywood and Indian culture are evolving differently :D Come here and see! lol But still, some movies will remain SOME MOVIES! :)

That pic's from Deewana Mujhsa Nahin, right?

Hi Jugal: That pic is indeed from Deewana Mujh Sa Nahin. As for Bollywood and portrayal of an evolving culture, I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt given the tremendous diversity of their target audience. (But I do consider myself a Bollywood evangelist of sorts, so I might be biased inherently. :P)

At their peak, at least some good movies succeed in their manipulative ways. I like the good energy the brand of 'entertainment' tends to spread (often in its disillusionment).

Cheers!

Oh, and Jugal, on an unrelated note, I'd be curious to know your thoughts on this.
