Smoke a Kerala dinesh beedi, if you are a smoker...




























Kerala dinesh beedi is a leading beedi (mini cigar) brand of Kerala. I do remember the Kaja and Malabar brands as well. Then we use to have the theruppu beedi made at the corner shop. Tobacco is rolled into a special beedi leaf and tied with a thread. It is still adored by thousands of smokers....Here is one enjoying his beedi, probably first of the day at the Marine drive, Kochi...Ganja (marijuana) beedis are also available and unfortunately I do not know where to get it.  This photograph could have been crisper if I could shoot it from close quarters..unfortunately it is at 600 mm zoom with lumix fz200 without a tripod.  Warning - Tobacco smoking is injurious to health...
