not old enough!

almost all of my friends from iut work in offices in banani or gulshan now. where i do work and live in mirpur. in between we have the dhaka cantonment. ppl outside bangladesh might find it difficult to believe. but we have dhaka cantonment inside the main city. talk about unplanned city! and its very much troublesome to cross through it or around it. ultimately u would want to blow thing away. its a little too far to walk, and a little costly if u dont wanna walk. anyway after meeting my frnds in banani i was comin back to my home through cantonment with one of my frnds. the night was windy. so we decided to stroll, smoke and enjoy the time instead of being irritated by the cantonment and its clumsy meaningless rules. so we did. when we are in the center of cantonment a 'young' military police stopped us.
- hey u! y r u smokin?
me: sorry?
- y r u smokin? how old r u? [:S]
we were totally dumbstruck. and didnt knw what to say.
- u r not old enough to smoke and u r doin that in public. y?
me: im 24 years old, im a graduate and im a jobholder. y? is it prohibited to smoke in cantonment?
- u dont look like one. and throw that cigarette away. 'moner shukhe rastay cigarette khachhen! felen oita!'..... :# .. :@ *&%^&^$^%$^ ......
i cursed the bloody bastard under my breadth and had to throw the cigarette away. after all these are uncivilzed sack full of shits with absolutely nothin inside the head.
NB: its not prohibited to smoke inside cantonment. more over there is rule related to age limit. is there any?

too much bangla written in english here. :(
I believe the age limit for legal purchase of tobacco is 16. There isn't a minimum age for legal smoking however.
I actually kind of liked the cantonment however. It always served as a shortcut through the city since the streets around it were jammed with traffic. We always drove through it. And it's so clean and all too...

arre abedin...:D

nowal the only line written in bangla means more like,"smokin in public and u look so happy? y!.. [i.e. dont look happy]"
