India’s drive to discourage people from smoking has gained momentum with the new ruling-effective June 2007, all cigarette packets will include graphic descriptions of inherent health risks caused by smoking. For instance, pictures of a corpse and mouth cancers will be displayed on the packs. Poignant pictures of a toddler with tubes in his nostrils will be part of some packs, designed to fill the smoker with dread regarding the potential fallout of smoking on innocent children.
