There is a reason why smoking in public places is not allowed, but people often seem to ignore the ban. But what exactly would one do if you see someone smoking in public place? Ignore or stop the smoker? While many would opt for the first one, few might feel the urge to protest.
We have been told passive smoking is bad, but do you believe it and ask the smoker next to you to stop? How will you react if you see a man puffing right into the face of a baby at a bus stand? Many a time, the woman holding the baby is shy to protest but tries to keep smoke away from the little one. But will YOU stand up for her or just ignore the incident?
Well, to see what really happens, a Youtube channel Crazy Indians did a social experiment to see how people reacted to smoking in public. To trigger some reaction, they used the same situation described above and made a ‘baby’ cry aloud after blowing smoke in its face.
As it happens, some people standing around soon charged the offender, some trying to explain logic while others approached him with rage. One may have to wait till the end to wait for the message to be delivered, but it was worth the effort.
The video was uploaded on the group’s Youtube channel on November 6 and since then has been trending on the site. It had already garnered over more than 1.2 million views, at the time of writing.
With the rising pollution and thick smog cover in and around Delhi, people actually feared how hazardous smoke can be. But do we think enough while smoking?
