Sub. Telecasting the films round the clock.

 Sir,

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper. I want to pinpoint the decision of multinational companies to launch new channels in order to telecast a variety of entertainment channels round the clock and the same has become a great concern for everybody. You know that there are already many entertainment channels but these programmes fail to provide healthy and moral giving programmes. This downgrades the morale of the younger generation as the children sit glued to T.V. for the whole day and ignore their studies. You also know that too much T.V. viewing causes mental fatigue. Dizziness, concentration, and results in the loss of memory and retention. This also paves a way for avoiding other activities which are necessary for harmonious development.

It is also a point to reveal that these entertainment channels exhibit violence, obscenity, and vulgarity which adversely affects the psychology of the growing children.

 In this regard, it is the need of the hour that the government should initiate accurate steps to monitor and check such programmes. The decision to start such channels round the clock needs review and reconsideration. It will be better to take the Censor Board in confidence before launching such a project.

  I hope my views will be well adhered to. Yours faithfully,

Sweta

Sir,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards the Disadvantages of the Project. 

I have read an article in yesterday’s newspaper that the proposal for setting up an Oil Refinery in Rohtaspur has been cleared by the Cabinet Committee. I am writing this letter to express my deep concern over the environmental pollution the oil refinery shall create over the surrounding areas. This region is considered the rice bowl of the country. Its contribution to the Central Pool for food grains is about 60%. The poisonous smoke emitted by the refinery shall play havoc on the paddy fields resulting in less produce. In that case, we may have to import rice while today we are exporting this commodity to various countries.

There is growing resentment among the farmers whose agricultural land is being acquired for the refinery. I earnestly appeal to the Government to reconsider its decision and save the farmers of this area from being uprooted from their land.

Yours faithfully,

Sir

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to attract the attention of the Education Department of Haryana towards the issue of Road Safety Rules. Sir, today it comes in the reports that in most of the road accidents school students are involved.

They are at great risk of road accidents as they are not well aware of the Road Safety Rules. They lack the knowledge of how to cross the road, where to walk on the road, where to drive their bicycle etc.

It is urged that Road Safety Rules must be introduced in the syllabus of all secondary classes in Haryana. The knowledge of Road Safety Rules will make our students safe on the roads.

 Thanking you,

 Yours faithfully,

Sir

 Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to raise the issue of the need for Road Safety Rules. Today our roads have become much risky.

The major reason behind this is that people do not follow the Road Safety Rules from the heart. Most of the people follow. these rules only with a sense of fear of police. Whenever one finds the police absent from the scene, he or she breaks the traffic rules.

Wearing a helmet for the two-wheeler riders, using seat belts for the four-wheeler riders should become a spontaneous gesture. Life is precious. It must be protected by following Road Safety Rules. The people should follow these rules by heart, not with fear.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the authorities to the growing nuisance caused by the loudspeakers in Pitampura.

All religious places of worship put loudspeakers on the roofs. They keep blaring all day and till late in the night. The next morning, these loudspeakers start shrieking very early.

Our annual examinations are drawing near. Students feel disturbed by the loud sound of these loudspeakers. I hope the authorities will look into the matter.

Thanking you,

The problem of rising prices has become very common. It has caused a lot of hardship to the common people. The government has failed to hold the price rise. The prices of essential commodities are rising day by day. It has become very difficult to make both ends meet.

 The salaried people are the worst sufferers. They cannot manage their household budget within their salaries. It is high time the government should take steps to control the rising prices.

Sub: Poor maintenance of tourist spots

 Sir/Madam

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the utter neglect and the power maintenance of our tourist spots. The Archaeological Department of India and the concerned authorities must take immediate steps to preserve our national heritage from degradation, encroachments and vandalism.

Last Sunday, the visit to the Tughlaqabad Fort in South Delhi disappointed me beyond words. No doubt, the exterior, the outer walls of the Fort have been given a face-lift. The situation inside speaks of utter neglect and poor maintenance. The ruins are not sheltered for druggists, gamblers and all kinds of anti-social elements. There is no security and safety for a few tourists who venture to visit the place. Most parts of the Fort have been encroached by the greedy property dealers and the muscle men of the area. The Tughlaqabad Fort is a very important heritage site of historical value. The complex has the grave of GhasuddinTughlaq and many other buildings rose during the time of Mohammad-bin-Tughlaq.

This place of immense historical value and a great tourist spot needs immediate attention and protective steps. The place must be cleared off the illegal encroachments without any further delay. Even pathways, lawns, and lights need immediate attention. The security of tourists, especially of women and foreign tourists must be ensured to attract tourists in large numbers. The place must be made tourist-friendly. I hope the necessary steps will be taken immediately by the concerned authorities in this regard.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Rajasthan’s tremendous potentiality for tourists

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the untapped tremendous potentiality for tourists in Rajasthan.

It is quite unfortunate that India has not been able to exploit its rich cultural diversity and heritage to its advantage. Even small countries like Thailand and Malaysia attract more international tourists than India. Our state Rajasthan is a major draw for international tourists. But lack of basic infrastructure and facilities hampers the promotion of tourism in the state on a large scale.

Rajasthan has a rich cultural heritage and history. Its forts, havelies, deserts, lakes and national parks have lots of potentialities and attractions for all kinds of tourists. Every tourist wants a pleasant and comfortable stay. No doubt, Jaipur and Udaipur can boast of some hotels that match with the best in the world. But their number is too small. More hotels are required to cater to the needs of the budget-tourists. Touts and greedy travel agents bring a bad name to the state. Safety and freedom are the basic requirements for the promotion of tourism in the state. I hope the Department will take the necessary steps to attract more and more tourists to our beautiful and wonderful state.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Promoting the causes of the girl child

 Sir,

 Through the column of your prestigious newspaper, I advocate promoting the cause of the girl child. I also express my great contempt, concern and anxiety at the female foeticide and the killing of the girl child.

It is quite unfortunate that in spite of legal parity and equality of genders, many sections of our society still entertain the age-long bias and prejudice against female children. The disparity between male and female children is widespread. As President of ‘Girls Association of India’, I laud the efforts of ‘Goodwill Ambassadors’, for ‘Save the Girl Child Campaign’.

Many leading sportspersons have come forward for the cause. Sania mirza, JoshnaChinappa and many others have joined the campaign. All these ‘Goodwill Ambassadors’ have stood for the equality of sexes. Besides, Sakshi Malik—Bronze medallist at Rio Olympics 2016, PV Sindhu—Silver medallist at Rio Olympics 2016 and Mary Kom—Bronze Medallist at London Olympics 2012 have proved that women no longer lag behind men. We should care for our daughters as much as we do for our sons. We should give them a good education and opportunities. They will show better results than their counterparts. Only then we can protect the girl child and remove the gender imbalance.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Ban on the use of loudspeakers for religious purposes

Sir

Through the column of your prestigious national daily, I urge the authorities to ban the use of loudspeakers for religious purposes.

 I am a resident of DaribaKalan, Chandni Chowk, Delhi. The biggest nuisance that the residents of this area face today is the problem of noise pollution. The playing of loudspeakers at night plays havoc with the peace and tranquillity of the place. This part of Old Delhi possesses a composite communal culture. But all these religious communities compete with one another to cause maximum noise pollution.

The playing of loudspeakers for religious purposes at night is a big nuisance. On several days many people have to spend sleepless nights. The worst sufferers are the old and sick people. Students are also the victims of this nuisance. They can’t concentrate on their studies. We hope that the government will put a blanket ban on the use of loudspeakers at night. Even during the day, the maximum level of sound should be fixed. Immediate and effective steps are necessary to restore peace and tranquillity in the area.

Yours faithfully

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards Polluted Water Supply.  I wish to draw the attention of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to the polluted water supply. Kindly spare a little space in your esteemed newspaper to highlight my problem.

It is a sad thing that the water supply in the area is either meagre or polluted. For the last month, the water supplied by the corporation is dirty looking and gives a bad smell. It is a great hazard to health. It is feared that it may cause dangerous diseases like jaundice or cholera in this area.

The residents of this locality have complained to the authorities many times. But no attention has been paid to this problem. We hope that the problem will be solved with the help of your newspaper.

Thanking you,

Subject: Expressing concern over problems of roadside dwellers

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to express my concern and anxiety towards problems that we face due to the roadside dwellers near our houses. It may be an eye-opener for the authorities.

The roadside dwellers are deprived of civic amenities like light, public toilets, etc. People live in darkness at night, defecate and bathe in the open. The whole area reeks of a foul smell all the time In the summer and rainy seasons, the problems get worsened. Obnoxious smell irritates and is unbearable.

 The roadside dwellers are living in a virtual hell. Moreover, they have occupied every open space and it is very difficult for the residents even to walk on the roads safely. Their children play on the roads and have made the area accident-prone. Some dwellers have taken illegal electric connections. The live wires hanging loosely in the air pose a constant danger to life and property.

The government should take concrete and effective steps to solve this problem. The dwellers should be given proper place to settle down where all civic amenities be extended to them. The sweepers should clean the area daily. For the time being, the pavements should be cleared of the encroachers and movable toilets are installed there.

 These dwellers are household helpers but they cannot be allowed to create problems. It is hoped that this letter will bring to the notice of the civic authorities the combined problems of the roadside dwellers and the residents to initiate some positive steps to correct the situation.

 Yours sincerely,

 Kama’ Gupta
