Yesterday I found a 13 year old boy smoking cigarette beside me at bus stand. I felt so ill-at ease thinking about his situation down the line (Click here!), so I asked him, “Why do you smoke? You are too young to smoke.”
He smiled and said, “You don’t know about my situation.”
“You would have done the same if you have same issues like me in your life” he further added.
I wondered if what could be the issues with him which made smoke at such a tender age.
“Boy you don’t understand, in the long run you can develop a serious disease. Please don’t smoke”, I said. He waited a while and said, “You don’t need to worry about me. If the worse comes to worst, I will leave the world”.
Before I could make him understand what I was trying to, he ran away from the place.
I tried to stop him but all in vain, he almost diminished from sight. I had no other option but to regret if I could have helped him.
