Har Fikr Ko Dhuen Mein Uda ...


I have been smoking, nearly continuously, since my second year at FTII (84-85). I must have been 24 then - a reasonably unpunctual age for getting hooked (did not smoke or drink through either higher secondary or college ! - actually all the 'consequential' events in my life have happened years later than when they were expected to unfold - I am a tale forever behind schedule).

This 7th May, on my niece Priyanka's engagement day, I kicked the smoking habit (it was more of a coincidence - my throat was once again acting bad).

It's now been more than five months and temptation sometimes seems perilously close and feasible (even reasonable). The only protection in my pocket - sparkling smile Happydent White.
