What is a Bidi.

Bidi a name equal to cigarette but not rolled in paper.The contents are same that is tobacco a grade lower than that of a good brand of cigarette.The plant leaf of a particular spices is used as a wrapper to keep tobacco in the middle of this leaf called a TENDU leaf supposed to enhance the tobacco smoke to the smoker.These Bidi's are made mostly by rural women and at places by children also.The earnings may be around Rs.90 to Rs.120 per day which is the going rate in rural areas for any kind of work that is carried on in bulk.It may be even plucking fruits or sowing in the fields.These workers are paid on their turn over but a minimum quantity and fixed time is used to give incentive for higher turn over.

Bidi's are poor man's cigarettes as they cost less even few rich people smoke Bidi privately in their homes.Tobacco being the killer of the user is a addiction which starts slowly but grips the smoker like a steel grip in a silk glove.It is very hard for the person to stop smoking this piece of stick in so small a size but as strong as leeach sticking to the skin.The smoker blows out through his nose or mouth a smoke so pungent that a non smoker covers his nose unable to breath the air around him.and tries to go away from the spot as soon as he gets the smell.

Mangalore is manufacturing Bidi's since over 75 years and killing people at the age of 75 as the smokers lungs gets carbon deposits or a dark brownish color coating on their inside of the lungs and makes it difficult to breath and they keep coughing all night.The Anti Tobacco cell located in large city's keep educating the smokers the dreaded effect of this Bidi's while its manufacturing goes on at a rapid rate.This Bidi is a KILLER if you see a person smoking Bidi run like hell.. .
