“I'll quit tomorrow or next week, definitely before next year.", says every smoker ever. With a cigarette in one hand and phone in the other, some of us have shown concerns over cutting trees in Arrey colony on Twitter or shared terrifying global warming pictures on Instagram and WhatsApp. But we let smoke travel deeper into our lungs, indifferent to the impact of every puff on our health, and also the environment.

On World No Tobacco Day, Jaideep Ahlawat aka Hathi Ram Chowdhary of Paatal Lok has a powerful message for all those who smoke or have been trying to quit. Let this lockdown free you from your addiction, the actor urges.

Kuch din ghar mein band hua toh
saansein teri ghutney lagi?
Ghar, dabbey sa lagne laga..
aur qaid qaid hui zindagi?

Ab uss dabbey ka soch zara
Tu kaid mein jiski saalon se..
Har kash ko tu samjhe Chaabi..
Aur Jakad raha khud taalon se...

Iss Latt ke Lockdown se
chal khudko ab Unlock kar...
Har Kash ka rasta jaata...
seedha Paatal lok par...

Jalti cigarette haath mein lekar

badi badi batiyaane walon...
global warming, Aarey Jungle
pe afsos jataaney walon...

Beech sadak mein
Bedhaadak se...
Kyun Dhooein ki ultee karte ho?...
Public place mein
Innocence se...
Kash pe Kash kyun bharte ho?

Tumhare zehar se bachne
main Naak band karke chalta hoon..
Saansein rok leta hoon
saans kheenchne se darta hoon...

Masoom shok manatey hain..
Tumhare iss mehenge shauk par...

Iss Latt ke Lockdown se
chal khudko ab Unlock kar...
Har Kash ka rasta jaata...
seedha Paatal lok par...

Jaanta hoon tumhare liye bhi
yeh beraham si aafat hai...
Chhot gaye woh dost magar
Chipak gayi yeh aadat hai..

Suno smoke break mein
networking ka hathyaar jise banaaya hai...
kuch pal zindagi khoyi hai jab jab
kisi suteri ka saath nibhaaya hai...

Chhoot gayi hai, chhoot jaayegi..
Khud se kitna jhoot bola hai..
Har cigarette peene wala...
Ek Fidayeen tola hai...

Jeete jee kya milta hai
yoon raakh mein khudko jhonk kar...

Iss Latt ke Lockdown se
chal khudko ab Unlock kar...
Har Kash ka rasta jaata...
seedha Paatal lok par...
