Before panic sets in, this is a news item from Thailand.

Do members think this scheme would be well received in India, or could similar boxes be used for better purposes?

Urban Indians have taken quite well to the smoking ban. Most upmarket places in Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad I dont see anyone smoking outside / away from designated smoking zones. Dunno about rural India where bidis are a cultural thing.

Smoking is already banned in public places and offices in india. And beachsides are public places. In india all we need is enforcement of the rules/ acts and huge fine for breaking rules/laws. Nowadays we hardly see people smoking in trains, platforms, buses, bus terminus etc. in cities.

I think people will react positively, however, how people will react is not the point, but why have such facilities not been provided is what is perplexing. Smokers pay highest product taxes in India as far as I know, and the least the government can do is to provide facilities where smokers can go and smoke in peace and have an option of not breaking the law.

This will be even more beneficial to non smokers who would not have to be passive smokers. Moreover, it will also be a big step towards a better environment as the waste in form of cigarette butts can be easily disposed off, otherwise they just become part of ecosystem and impossible to be managed.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Smpkers' corner? On the contrary there are new innovative ways to be introduced to smother smokers more and more and rightly so.

Nice to know that India is way ahead on non-smoking, at least.

What is the situation in UK regarding public smoking these days? When I last looked, the street was where office workers went to smoke, but I haven't looked for 15 years. And twenty-five years ago, I was one of them.
