Sub: Health Hazards Caused by Junk Food.
Through the lines of your esteemed paper, I want to pinpoint the damages caused by fast food. We know that our life has become so complex that we hardly get any time even to enjoy our food well.
We always remain in worry and hurry and most often we purchase fast food from the market and eat it in the way. On one side we think that it is cheap, tasty and saves our time but on the other, we fail to realize its damaging effects. None of the shopkeepers uses hygienic items in the preparation of such items. They are below standard and are prepared haphazardly without due attention towards vitamins and food value. They only provide the taste for the tongue. Most often we enjoy it but its effect on our body is very disastrous.
It causes depression. Tension, blood clotting, heart attack, allergy, rashes on the body, vomiting, loose motion and nausea, etc. They disturb our circulatory system as well as digestion. So many diseases surround us and we have to knock on the doors of the doctors thereby wasting wealth, health, and time. If we want to lead a healthy life, we should avoid such cheap items for the taste of the tongue. I hope people will realize the results of cheap food as I have become a victim of heart disease through the use of fast food.

Subject: Colossal wastage of food in lavish Indian weddings.
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards Colossal wastage of food in lavish Indian weddings. We all talk of changing our country for betterment but how little do we do in this regard. Out of so many things that go unnoticed in our dear country, here is one issue that I wish to chalk out. it is strange how Indians spend life’s savings at their weddings.
The wedding market in India is flourishing, with approximately I.50, 000 crores per year. The shocking pan is that all this wastage is happening when our own country. India. is a host of the biggest armies of starving people in the world. Such wastage should be censured and people should be educated against wastage of food in such a manner. In social functions and gatherings, guests should not squander food by piling up their plates excessively. The size of the servings should be limited according to the appetite. Besides, the hosts should also respond by giving the caterers the exact number of guests to arrive so that the food is cooked accordingly and there is no wastage.
I cannot help but point out how people do not even bother to use ‘R.S.V.P.’. Which means “please respond”, a French phrase, to confirm their visit on being invited? Thus, the host, not sure of the number of guests to arrive, prepares food in abundance leading to inevitable wastage. Indian marriages are not just famous for their traditions and customs but also because of their grand fiestas. I hope that the new generation understands the gravity of the situation and abandons old fashions and deals with such issues practically.

Subject: The Food Habits of Teenagers
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards the food habits of teenagers of today.
It is a matter of concern that youngsters have developed bad food habits these days. Most of them do not like simple, home-made food which is hygienic and nutritious. They are fond of only spicy fast food which includes burgers, pizzas, noodles, samosas, so on and so forth. The problem with such food is that it is harmful to health. It is junk food, full of ample calories. The teenagers in our schools must be taught what to eat and what to avoid. It is the duty of both parents and teachers to tell them to eat lots of fruit, green vegetables, rice, etc. and take milk products liberally. They should also go in for regular exercise. Only then can they be physically healthy and mentally alert.
