Thanks for your quick response Sanjay - what do you mean by the please all policy - do you mean that there are smoking areas in restaurants? Because if it was just mixed with smokers and non-smokers then it would not please all...

smoking on trains

based on what i've read on this thread, i assume smoking is prohibited on trains - at least i hope that's the case. is someone able to confirm this?

(like most reformed smokers, i'm rabidly anti-smoking - coming up on 20 years "clean" after 10 years of smoking more than a pack a day - ick!)

Smoking is prohibited on trains although you will find that there are people who stand in the doorway of the compartment and have a smoke while the train is moving.

I would imagine that is the college crowd where peer pressure is the main reason why the young women are smoking. Generally speaking I have found that the only married women who smoke in India are those who are in the upper strata of society or those who are living in rural areas where they smoke beedis. I have rarely come across a middle class married woman with children who smokes regularly.

Tribal women in the Visakhapatnam / Srikakulam districts of Andhra Pradesh smoke cheroots, in reverse, that is the burning tip inside the mouth. It's called 'adda chutta', - reverse cigar literally. It is an accepted practice.

The side effects are terribble to say the least.

Thankfully, true. Even I have never come across any middle class taking puffs. And yes...its the working young class of women....rather girls...who are into it. Almost every Call Center girl is a smoker and there are lots of such ppl roaming around with a cigarette, at public places.

I've seen women in the county sides in northern India smoking big bongs. So, I never thought it was really an issue in India.

More precisely, are there any places where smoking is prohibited? (Obviously not talking about temples, museums, other monuments or places with AC - rather like the streets of the above mentioned places).

Thanks!
Goa is full of packaged westerners who smoke,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Must be all those duty free's

A few of us on bikes were on our way to Old Goa. We pulled off the highway and stopped so some could light up. Plain clothes guys came over and booked 5 of them for smoking in public.

Had a similar experience in Revona I think it was, anyway a quiet wee place in interior Goa. We finished our meal and I went outside to have a smoke. The owner hurriedly told me this wasn't allowed and the police would nab me if they could!!

Try lighting up in Margao station these days you will get planty cross looks and comments!! Kinda took me by suoprise the first time I witnessed this. Civic pride at work!!
