As you guys know – I am not a big time smoker. I have nothing against smokers as long as he/she does it in a private place. Smoking in public places is pretty rude as per my standards because passive smoking is pretty bad.
Now coming to the topic about cigars – its more of a status symbol these days. Everybody wants to have a Cuban cigar (they are very famous – but most of the Cuban cigars that we get might be counterfeit. Its pretty difficult to get the real one). Cigars are not very common here in India – but I do believe they might become popular in the future as there are many flavored ones to choose from.
