The Editor


New Delhi


I would like to utilize the columns of your esteemed paper to highlight the deteriorating standard of living in our city. There are several factors that have contributed to the deterioration. The fast increasing population of the city has made it very crowded and cramped. The streets have become narrower and- all open spaces have disappeared. The increasing consumption of electricity and water have made them very scarce. Their inadequate supply has made living conditions very unpleasant and unhealthy. Most of the people living in the city belong to the salaried or the labour class. While their income has remained almost the same, the prices have gone up manifold. All this has adversely affected their standard of living. Added to all this, there is the problem of pollution due to the exhaust fumes of numberless autos plying on the city roads day and night. The problem has reached such alarming proportions that immediate remedial measures will have to be taken to save the city from a major catastrophe. Some of the suggestions in this regard are —

(i)New spacious colonies should be developed at the outskirts of the city.

(ii) The supply of water and electricity should be adequately increased in proportion to their demand.

(iii) Steps should be taken to control the prices of goods of everyday use.

(iv) Standards of pollution control should be strictly implemented on all sources that generate pollution.

(v) Last but not least, the authorities concerned must develop a sense of social responsibility.

 Yours sincerely,
