On behalf of the residents of Berpally Apartments, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities about the poor bus service in our area which is adversely affecting the lives of the residents who are commuting by bus.

Our locality lies on the outskirts of the main city, so a majority of our residents resort to use of public transport to commute to and from the | city. But the poor bus-service which has also I led to the buses being over-crowded is becoming a major problem for residents. Despite our repeated pleas the concerned authorities have turned a deaf ear to our problem which we now have been facing for the past almost two years. Our only request is that a few additional buses be assigned for our i locality so that commuting to the city is not a nightmare for us.

Subject: Rash and reckless driving

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to express my concern about the rash and reckless driving by our city drivers which has led to an unprecedented rise in the number of road accidents.

One now feels rather scared of these reckless drivers who it seems are all geared to drive over people and collide with other vehicles. Serious thinking and stern measures need to be taken up by the traffic police to prevent this problem. Heavy fines should be levied on overspeeding drivers and those who do not follow the traffic rules. After three consecutive fines the licence of reckless drivers should be confiscated for a minimum period of six months. The traffic police needs to deal very strictly with these careless citizens who indulge in such dangerous driving.

Through the column of your newspaper, I would like to appeal to the concerned authorities to give this problem their immediate attention.

Subject: Mosquito Menace due to Stagnant Water

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities towards the mosquito menace due to stagnant water in our locality.

It is most unfortunate that despite the level of awareness created by the media and the municipal department itself not much has been done to improve the potholes in the roads of our locality. They have not been repaired and this leads to water stagnation at various places during the monsoon season which, in turn, provides an ideal breeding place for mosquitoes. Despite our repeated complaints to the municipal authorities nothing has been ! done to improve the pathetic condition of the roads. These mosquitoes lead to the spread of a: variety of deadly diseases like dengue, malaria | etc. The authorities need to look into this matter! urgently by making arrangements to pump out; the stagnant water or by spraying repellents or kerosene oil to check the breeding of this disease-causing mosquitoes.

Since the only permanent solution to this problem is repairing the road, I would be grateful if the concerned authorities pay heed to our problem and necessary action on this is taken at the earliest.

Subject: Adverse Effect of Advertisements

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to enlighten the public about the negative influence of advertisements that promote useless commodities and superstitious beliefs through glamorous and exaggerated presentations.

The advertisers present a superficial scenario that is far removed from reality and has a lasting effect on the minds of the people. These advertisements, which can be seen, heard and read almost everywhere on televisions, radio, newspapers etc., are more pervasive and less recognizable as a sales pitch. In order to capture the minds of the prospective buyers, advertisement companies are constantly seeking new ways to target their audience and resort to all kinds of means to present their products attractively. We can rightly say that advertisers these days have lost their moral scruples and have no qualms in resorting to even lies and deceit to sell their product.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so as to make the general public aware about the negative and harmful effects of advertising and thus enable them not to take their exaggerated and glamorous presentations seriously.

Dog owners walking their dogs in the streets and parks has been a common sight. These pet dogs relieve themselves along the streets, pavements and in the parks and thus make them dirty and unhygienic. Urgent measures need to be taken up to prohibit this practise so that we can keep our city clean. Heavy fines needs to be levied on these dog owners who take their pet dogs for relieving on the streets and parks. Certain open areas should be specified where these pet dogs can relieve themselves. People in countries like USA, UK etc. also keep pet dogs but ensure that they relieve themselves without contaminating their cities. So dog lovers in our country should also be made to adhere to certain rules to keep our city clean and hygienic.

I hope you will look into this matter urgently and seriously to ensure the cleanliness of our city.

Subject: Mosquito-menace in our locality

Sir
Through the medium of this letter I would like to bring to your notice the major problem of mosquito menace in our locality which has become a major cause of concern for all residents.

These days, particularly due to the rains, many sewages and lanes in our locality are full of stagnant water. This stagnant water is proving to be an ideal place for breeding of mosquitoes. The Municipal Corporation seems to have forgotten that sewages need to be cleaned and water-logging needs to be inspected on a regular basis during the monsoon season.

Professional career counselling addresses a person’s interests, skills and educational background in a strategic way. Experienced and trained counsellors can be invited on this programme to facilitate the process of selecting. a particular career option.

Subject: Ill-treatment meted out to stray dogs

Sir
Through the medium of this letter I would like to voice my strong thoughts against the ill-treatment meted out to stray dogs at the hands of callous and indifferent people.

It is indeed pathetic to see how these stray dogs are not even accorded the basic dignity and protection that we believe must be accorded to all life on our planet. The stray dogs are more than often denied the protection of the very laws enacted by the lawmakers, the provision for animal rights, animal welfare and the prevention of cruelty against animals. These dogs who have lived in our midst for more than 14,000 years have to be treated humanely. But unfortunately, most of these dogs live in a miserable state, suffering from ill-treatment and atrocities meted out to them by callous people. It is high time that the concerned authorities for animal welfare ensure proper implementation of laws relating to Animal Rights that can be the most effective weapon against the exploitation of these helpless animals.

I hope you will publish my letter in your esteemed newspaper so as to make people aware about the need to ‘be human’ with stray dogs who are also living beings.

Due to poor maintenance, the condition of roads in the city is rather bad as they are full of potholes and cracks which lead to traffic jams and even damage the suspension of the commuters’ vehicles. It seems like the authorities are actually waiting for something untoward to happen before they wakeup and remedy this situation. Sources from Bengaluru Municipal corporation say the maintenance work of the city roads has been divided among agencies like Public Works Department and Bengaluru Development Authority which is the main problem as each agency gets a chance to pass on their responsibility.

It is now high time that a policy is made wherein all the busy and important roads should be developed by increasing their thickness every two years. By following this policy, the authorities can help to relieve the commuters’ problems.

I hope you will publish my letter in your esteemed newspaper so that the concerned authorities can look into this matter urgently.

Through the medium of this letter I wish to bring to the notice of the Electricity Department the problems that we are facing due to the inadequate electricity supply in our town. Though we have been facing power cuts for a long time the situation has never been as bad as it has been in the recent past. Despite repeated complaints to the consumer service centre, there has been no respite to people who are facing a lot of problems every day. Power cuts disrupt the studies of children and also cause great inconvenience to the elderly who stay home all day. The soaring temperature makes it difficult to bear the heat as fans, coolers, air- conditioners are rendered useless with no electricity.

It is my suggestion to the Electricity Board to allot power cut timings to different areas based on a schedule so that people of that area are prepared to face a power cut during that time period. Moreover, notices can also be issued to commercial complexes to close down at least one hour before their closing time so that power can be saved.

It is my request to you to publish this grievance so that the authorities realize our difficulty, take note of the suggestions and do the needful.

Moreover, the quality of the maintenance of the bus was also rather poor. I had to spend my entire journey of about eight hours in unbearable heat. It is most unfair on the part of the Transport Department to charge high fares for air-conditioned buses and then to make passengers take journey which is an ordeal. Regular inspection of the buses must take place and a strict warning should be issued to the bus drivers and owners by the transport department. Immediate action should be initiated to ensure good maintenance of these buses.

It is rather unfortunate that games and sports are not given as much importance in our country as academics by schools, colleges, parents and society in general. As a result of this, our sports achievements in the international arena are also not very spectacular. Our sportspersons always put up a poor performance in the major international sports events. In our country, we lay a lot of importance on academics and children are so stressed out because of this that they cannot pursue their passion for sports beyond a certain stage. Sports and games are extremely important for the physical, mental and emotional well being of an individual. Sports inculcate the values of team spirit, leadership, cooperation and perseverance.

We need to review our education system and create awareness about the importance of sports and games. The government should allocate resources for the development of quality sports infrastructure and also provide incentives and special quotas to sportspersons to encourage people to take up sports as a profession.

I hope you will publish my letter in your esteemed newspaper so that this issue is brought to the notice of all people.

I hope to receive a reply from your end soon as my academic session has already started and I need this text book urgently. Awaiting prompt action so that I am not inconvenienced any further.

Subject: Problem of child illiteracy

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper I would like to express my concern over the problem of child illiteracy in rural India.

Recently on my visit to my native village I saw that some of the children in the age group of 514 years were either working in the fields or simply loitering in the streets. These children are missing out on valuable formal education. It is most unfortunate that despite various incentives by the government to provide education to children they are still not encouraged to go to school. The general attitude of parents, elders and children in the villages is one of indifference and disinterest. There is no motivation for rural child to go to school.

The government, NGOs and all citizens, in general, need to put in combined efforts to ensure that more children are formally educated in rural areas. There is no single solution to this problem. It needs to be addressed in multiple steps and at various levels.

Emphasis should be laid on skill development and children should be provided free meals, books and uniforms as an incentive to go to school. It is easy to sit in the comforts of our homes and crib about the lack of literacy among children and how our government is inefficient. Maybe if we all actually start making efforts, things can really change for the better.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the citizens of India can take more concrete efforts to ensure that children of rural India are educated.

Subject: Should players be allowed to take their wives on tours
Sir

Through the medium of this letter I would like to reflect on the cricket board’s compliance that the players can take their wives, even friends along with them when they go abroad for a tournament. Does this fact distract the players or help them focus on their game in a better way?

The cricket board does not think this affects the performance of the player. It may be argued that wives and friends act as distractions and players may lose focus. However, having a spouse along is a source of emotional support. Presence of family helps in over-coming homesickness and keeps the players stress-free in pressure matches.

It all depends on the player. Once he is playing for the country, he has to give his 100 per cent. If the cricket board thinks this is good why are our athletes not allowed to enjoy the same privilege? All our players are mature enough; and till now we have seen good performance by the players who have been accompanied by their spouses. A few incidences cannot overview the past brilliant games won with the spouse attending the game in the spectator’s row. Expenditure on the travel and stay of their spouse is again a winning strategy to boost-up the spirit of the players. It is now high time we allow this privilege to our athletes as well.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that it draws the attention of the Athletics Federation of India and they too consider to allow the athletes this privilege.

Subject: Endangering of the environment by tourists in National Parks

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper I would like to express my concern on how the tourists are abusing the available facilities and thus endangering the environment of the Corbett National Park.

Our group of about 40 students had gone on a 3-day tour through Corbett National Park. On our visit we saw the tourists, callous attitude towards the available facilities in the park. It was most unfortunate to see that tourists do not adhere to the rules of carrying a litter bag and leave their non-biodegradable garbage like plastic bottles, metal foils etc. inside the park. Moreover, actions such as trampling vegetation, parking in areas that are not designed for parking add to the destruction of the land. All these things are likely to endanger the environment.

I strongly feel that the authorities should take stringent action against the defaulters who display such a casual attitude towards the environment. Heavy fines and even penalties should be imposed on them so that these act as major deterrents for all tourists to use and not misuse the available facilities. Educating tourists on this sensitive issue and limiting the number of tourists and vehicles in these national parks may help in preventing further degradation of such parks.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that tourists as will as the concerned authorities change their attitude and work along to conserve the National Parks of our country.

Subject: Exploitation of teachers by giving them less than authorised salaries

Sir
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper I would like to raise my voice against exploitation of teachers who are paid a mere fraction of their authorised salaries. Recently I read in a newspaper that privately owned and managed schools in small towns or even in the suburbs of metropolitan cities exploit their teachers by paying them meagerly. This to . a very large extent affects their efficiency and performance in the classroom and thus also affects the lives of the students. Underpaid teachers are usually demotivated and lose interest in their jobs. Low salaries result incompetent teachers leaving their jobs in search of better pays.

Pay structure is potentially a very important incentive tool in the hands of the education policymakers and this needs to be implemented fairly in all schools. The policymakers need to view this problem with grave concern and find ways to solve it. Schools which do not pay the teachers according to the scales should have their accreditation cancelled by the CBSE and their recognition cancelled by the government. By implementing these suggestions with precision and strictness, exploitation of teachers can surely be dealt with in a very positive way and the injustice against them can be tackled.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the concerned authorities can take up steps to remedy this exploitation against teachers.

Sir
Through the medium of the column of your esteemed newspaper I would like to express my concern over the miserable condition of slums which have come up in every big city and give suggestions to improve the living conditions in these slums.

Lack ofob opportunities in the rural areas has forced people to migrate to cities. Every big city has a number of slums wherein the living conditions are most pathetic and unhygienic. Slums lack basic sanitation services, supply of clean water, reliable electricity, schools, dispensaries and other basic services. The Municipal Corporations seem to have turned a blind eye towards the improvement of slums.

Urgent steps need to be initiated to better the living conditions in the slums. The government needs to strengthen the capacity of NGOs to engage with local authorities and other service providers for the sustainable provision of basic services in slums whereby slum dwellers are provided access to clean water, improved sanitation and waste management services. Moreover income-generation activities should be supported and community-managed schemes should be developed to enable slum dwellers to secure funds for the improvement of physical facilities.

I sincerely hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the concerned authorities awaken to improving the lives of the lakhs of people living in the slums.

Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper I would like to express my concern over the problem of noise pollution causing havoc in our daily lives.

Besides air and water pollution, our cities are also under an attack of noise pollution. Marriage processions, DJs during weddings, loud music are all sources of noise especially troublesome for senior citizens, ailing people and students. Another major source of loud and unwanted sounds nowadays is unplanned urban development and construction. The increasing levels of noise pollution have created the urgent need of general awareness about its sources, effects and preventive measures. Noise pollution has adverse effects on human health and behaviour.

Increased levels of noise may cause damage to psychological health, hypertension and stress, hearing loss, disturbed sleep, etc. Some stringent measures need to be adopted by the concerned authorities to solve the problem of noise pollution. Public awareness needs to be created and people should be made to realize its harmful consequences. Proper regulations need to be enforced on the use of loudspeakers beyond a certain volume and time. The concerned authorities need to take up adequate measures to ensure that noise-related restrictions are not violated.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the concerned authorities take stringent measures to curb the problem of noise pollution without further delay.

Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper I would like to describe the importance of medical tourism for India.

It gives us pleasure when we read in the newspapers how patients from abroad come to hospitals in India and get themselves treated at a fraction of expenses they would have incurred elsewhere. All Indian hospitals have skilled physicians and nursing practitioners. The medical facilities provided in Indian hospitals are at par with the international standards but still cost less, not because of any compromises in quality but due to the favourable currency conversion rates and lower operating costs in India.

The Indian Government is taking steps to address infrastructure issues that might hinder the country’s growth in medical tourism. Hospitals have hired language translators for the comfort of patients from countries like Russia and Africa. The boom in medical tourism is helping the Indian economy in earning foreign exchange and has also improved relations with other countries. Acknowledging the significance of medical tourism in India, the Government is trying to increase the international tourist traffic by offering medical visas.

It is not a wonder that India is being promoted as a healthcare destination in ‘Incredible India campaign’ being run by the tourism industry. I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper.

Yesterday, I had taken a victim of a hit and run accident who required immediate medical attention to the casualty and trauma ward of your hospital. To my horror, the conditions in the casualty department were extremely chaotic and disorganised. None of the on-call nurses and doctors seemed to know what to do. The injured person I had accompanied was writhing away in pain as his broken arm was left unattended for an agonising one hour. He was finally attended to but only after precious time had been lost. This delay in receiving the required medical help could have proved fatal for the victim.

This matter is of grave concern and requires the urgent attention of the hospital authorities as the casualty department cannot afford to show such incompetence with medical and other emergency cases coming in at any time.

I hope you will look into this matter immediately and ensure a smooth functioning of the casualty department.

Subject: Road rage has become a serious problem

Sir
Through the medium of this letter I would like to draw your attention and express my concern on the problem of road rage which has come to assume alarming proportions in big cities and has become a serious problem. Road rage is a grave issue on which there is need to concentrate and take necessary action. The increasing number of incidents of road rage should serve as a warning to the city’s administrators. People do not realize that aggressive driving is a traffic violation whereas road rage is a criminal offence.

A person who is not able to control his emotions and bullies another on the road does not deserve any leniency so merely imposing a fine is not enough. There must be fear of the consequences. Aggressive physical and verbal behaviour on the roads sometimes even ends up in murder in extreme cases. So, harsher implementation of law and stricter punishments are necessary to instil fear in people. Effective intervention by law enforcement agencies and more policing can help to bring the number of road rage cases down.

On the social front the public can be educated and encouraged to become polite drivers, follow traffic rules and regulations, avoid confrontations and keep the driving environment calm to avoid incidents of road rage.

I hope you will take a serious note of this grave problem and implement stringent and immediate measures to ensure its control.

Subject: Too many advertisements during television serials

Sir
Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper I wish to protest against the growing number of advertisements during television serials.

There are many good programmes that one wants to watch on T.V. but the interruption caused due to too many advertisements leads to loss of interest of the viewer, irritation and anger that finally leads to poor TRPs.

It is a known fact that advertising revenue is the life-blood of the media but there must be consideration for the viewers who are mainly responsible for low and high TRPs of a programme. A highly commercial attitude of the channel will certainly not go in its favour as far as viewership is concerned. It is my suggestion that only a limited number of advertisements should be telecast during serials and other programmes.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so as to enable the television channel management to take a serious note of this matter.

Yours sincerely
Rema,

Subject: Complaint about lack of street lights on Station Road

Sir
Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper I would like to complain about the lack of street lights in our locality at Station Road.

I would like to apprise that our locality is inhabited by thousands of residents living in more than 1,000 flats on either side of the road. The electricity board has installed poles on the road to supply light but these poles have never been lit. During these days of winter, when it turns dark early, there is always an apprehension of an accident taking place because there is heavy traffic on the road round the clock.

Moreover, it is extremely risky for children, ladies and old people to venture out in the dark. It is a convenient invitation to miscreants. It is our request to the concerned authorities to ensure that the street lights are fixed and lit up without further delay so that the residents can carry out their daily activities without fear even during the evening.

I am sure if my letter is published in your esteemed newspaper, the authorities concerned will awaken from their slumber and our problem will be solved.

Yours sincerely

I am very anxious and worried ever since and have recently heard about more such incidents from other parents. There is fear among the children and it is my request to you to take strict action against this problem. The harassed children need to be given moral support and the miscreants need to be dealt with strictly. The school should also arrange for their counselling and may I also suggest that the school authorities take the help of parents in tackling this problem at its root level.

Such cases need to be stopped to maintain the healthy environment of the school and I am sure you will deal with this problem with immediate effect.

Subject: Need to change male mindset about women

Sir
Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of our society towards not giving women the respect and status that is long overdue to them.

It is rather unfortunate that women are stared at, stalked and even molested. Crimes against women such as rape, molestation, eve-teasing have been steadily on the rise reflecting the need for greater gender sensitization. Women have been constantly fighting to assert their rights and against their gender disparity. Sadly, they have not been able to overcome this issue as they are fighting against males, some of whom do not want to change their dirty and perverted mindset. Offences against women are acts of regression to establish that they are considered secondary citizens. Empowerment of women is an irritant to the mindset of a patriarchal society.

So, we as a society, need to fight against this decadent patriarchal culture that is shaming our society. Laws are redundant if we as a society do not take the social responsibility towards safety and security of women.

I sincerely hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that our society awakens to give women the respect and status they deserve.

Sir
Our village Gopalpur is along National Highway No. 12 in district Ramnagar. The state roadways buses pass our village but do not stop here.

On behalf of the residents of our village it is my request to you that our village be provided with a bus stop. Many people from our village are daily commuters who work in district Ramnagar. It would be very convenient for them to have a bus stop in our village. As for now the nearest bus stop for state roadways buses is about five kilometres away from our village and it is rather difficult to get any public transport to reach our village. Moreover, safety of our villagers, is a major concern. As there are no streetlights, people have to walk back 5 kms in the dark to get back to the village.

Keeping these problems in mind, I sincerely hope that you will ensure our village gets a bus stop. Since our village is along the highway there will be no diversion of route for the state roadways buses. Awaiting an early response from your end.

National Book Trust had organised a week-long book fair from the 11th to 17th November at Anna Grounds. I visited the fair and even bought a few books. It was indeed a pleasure to see the well-organised book fair and it was evident that the organizers had taken all the required efforts to ensure the meticulous arrangements. It was also heartening to see the enthusiasm of the visitors whose large presence at the book fair was proof enough that despite the dominance of the world of the internet, books have not yet lost their relevance and value. It is commendable how parents were encouraging their children to visit various stalls and explore the different varieties of books on display. Books are still and will always remain the most compact and inexpensive way of gaining knowledge.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the importance of organising and visiting book fairs is reiterated.

Through the medium of the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to express my concern about students wasting their precious time on the internet merely for entertainment and also point out how school authorities can control students’ netsurfing at school.

With the increasing internet usage in schools across the country it is imperative for schools to consider the responsibility of giving students guidance in becoming productive net-users. As internet services enter the classrooms and students are being exposed to the full range of what is available on the net, it should be in the domain of the school authorities to enable students to manage their capabilities in utilising the net for knowledge, learning skills, gaining information on any and every subject.

students should be counselled to function productively alongside distraction. They should be conditioned to think of this social media not only as escape medium to drown out other essential tasks but as something that can be integrated for gaining information and knowledge. There should be supervision for net-surfing in schools so that students do not waste away time using the internet merely for entertainment.

I hope you will publish my letter in your newspaper so that the school authorities take up measures to ensure fruitful usage of internet among students.
