At various public or private service centres, institutions  above notice is a popular notice.  I wonder how many of the public respect the notices they notice every day. I know that in certain places you may find notices with an area allocated for smoking’ 
dum bona sthanayata

You may have seen this place along the Kandy Colombo road this is a place where the most the buses stop for a break for a bun, tea, or any other eateries and drinkables.

Smoking cigarettes is harmful in the long run and every person who takes them bring them in to the country, sell them are every well aware of it though the taxes are high I have not heard that anyone has stopped the business of cigarettes selling or importing. Illegal imports of cigar and similar things we often hear or get the news from news bulletins.
Notices, advises from various institutions lessons attached with the curriculum of schools and other institutions, often awareness programs conduct by various television channels, documentaries all these are happening thankfully but I have seen the tobacco cultivations along the roads towards rajarata  , when you go passing kekirawa I am not sure whether the harvesting season is over but about sometime back I noticed such cultivation of course sponsored and encouraged by the ‘ manufacturers no doubt about that.

I do not know how much they get per single leaf of tobacco. May be it is profitable compared to the other agricultural businesses, cultivation but how to control such things at the ground level is important to learn.  About little long ago cigarettes are recognized by the youth specially or it is generally known as something which adds outer quality, looks to the personalities of youngsters, gents in general. All became rubbish thanks to the loads of awareness programmes by various state and non governmental institutions.  

I know how harmful this smoking is because of my father so this I know personally and can write this using the experiences that my family personally gone through. He used to smoke tons cartons of them per day.

It was not just him who had to suffer it was the whole family. I guess lose of a family member even until the end can not be recovered and replaced the consequences all have face.

cigarettes  cause CANCER

So for healthy lungs, healthy life in total staying away from cigarettes is very advisable.

Do I have to write anything in particular about this No I do not think so because this illness is not a new thing to the world.   

 ‘No smoking’

What difference it brings

gena enuye kumana wenasakda

Hithaa beluweda numba - mohothakata
Have you ever thought of it for a moment?



Watinaakama Jeewithayaka
The value of a life

kaahatada denenuye labendiyanta hera
Who will worth it better than the nearer and dearer ones?

Lives around you
Oba wataa hindinaa jeewitha

Ginibath wana satha saha rupiyal
Burning cents and rupees

Pireeithirena alu bandun
The trays full – ashes

Kunaatuwaka heda thala noweda
Isn’t that shows shapes and sizes of a ‘cyclone’

Who will stay beside?
Asabadin siteewida kawrun

Think a moment
Sithanna mohothakata

Walangu nethidaa wera – weeriya
The day dysfunction the bones born with

Kisiwekuth nositinu etha thani nothaniyata
No one will delete the loneliness

Kawrun udaw karaawida numbata ewita
Who will help you then?

Malagamin pasu diwiyaka
After the final farewell of the journey

Who will think of the nearer and dearer?
Sameepathayin gen kwrun soya balaawida?

So …………………………….

Samudenna dum wetiyata

A life lesson from smoke  

Dum rotuwaka arumaya

Ihalata negi dum rotu

Wisal ahas kusa sipa ganiy

Mada saulangath samagin hemi hemihita

Thural wee yana heda

Husmata ekathuwa minisunage

Kiyaa sitinuye kima

Asai maa sitha

Dum rotuwaka heda thala nopennaada

Ginnaka ginibathbawa

Ginnaka awasana

Wane nam a kotharam sumata wanu ethida sithiwili
