In celebration of the
World Anti-Tobacco Day
, campaigners in Mumbai, India, have created an impressive life-size car model from 200,000 cigarettes. The smokable installation was placed on display in a Mumbai shopping mall, where it attracted the attention of everyone who passed by.

India is currently the second largest producer and consumer of tobacco, after China. At least one fifth of Indiaâ€™s population (roughly 241 million people) consume tobacco in some form.
