    Actually the title of the article in the news paper at the given link does say "No Smoking Zones..." Rajneesh ji replicated that. Thanks.

    lol

    I don't know about India...but in the US "No Smoking Zone" means no one can smoke in this area. And a "Smoking Zone" is never labeled as such. Ergo....if you are standing on the cusp of the No Smoking Zone by default you are in the Smoking Zone. This may be a matter, not of semantics, but of idiomatic differences within the same language. India and the US on the same wave length. The focus on what you are forbidden, or where forbidden, rather than what you are permitted and where. At any rate you have me roflmao on the point of going to school.

    p/s almost every public area, airports, all areas of all hotels, restaurants, office buildings, schools and universities, hospital campuses, parking lots, and more, now in the US are No Smoking Zones by local and state statutes. This is true even in states where tobacco is a major agricultural product. India may be next.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
