India bans smoking in public …

India has banned somking in public.  This is a bold move.  On the upside it will reduce deaths and illness from both passive and active smoking, will encourage healthier lifestyle and will also support a transition to a more enlightened social dynamic (as the “cowboy” image is depreciated).  But it will not be easy to implement in such a chaotic and diverse culture.  There may even be a tendency to abuse the new law.  It is certainly a bold, pioneering step in teh right direction.
