While waiting for my bus, I suddenly smelt smoke. It was cigarette smoke. The old uncle wasn't there nor was the middle-aged man. Who could it be? I turned my head and saw the three school boys smoking! Wow...they are like in lower secondary? About the age of 15? They shared a stick. While smoking, they looked around. One of them smiled and laughed throughout. He seemed to be the oldest among the group. I guess he was the leader of the group. The other two seemed fidgety - noobs I guess.
All of a sudden, Boy shouted for the three boys. Huh? Were they even together in a group? Their uniforms were different. He motioned for them to board a bus. The three looked agitated and the eldest of the three started to puff a few more puffs before throwing the cigarette on the floor.
I was stunned. They are young boys and have started to smoke. I know it's common but I saw it myself on that day. It's different hearing something as compared to when you actually see it. I guess we are after all living in a progressive society so it's no surprise that young kids are exposed to "new forms of release".
