Sub: Opening of a public library in the area
Through the column of your prestigious national daily, I want to highlight the urgent need for opening a public library in NawabGanj.
I am a resident of NawabGanj, Bhopal. Mostly people belonging to lower-income groups live in this colony. It is difficult to imagine that the people of the area are deprived of having a good public library.
There are quite a sizeable number of students living in this area. They can’t afford to buy books, periodicals and magazines. The high prices of books and magazines dampen their reading spirit and passion. A good library can serve the needs of the people. There are many who like serious reading of books on different subjects. Others like to read the classics and novels written by Shakespeare, Keats, Wordsworth, Prem Chand and Tagore. The young people may like light reading like comics and sports magazines. Only a good library can serve the needs of all the residents of the area. I hope the concerned authorities will take immediate steps to meet the genuine demands of the residents of Nawab Ganj.

Sub: Boosting tourism industry in India
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the tremendous potentiality that the tourism industry has in India. The tourism industry can easily be a money-spinner as it can bring valuable income to the country. Let’s first explore the new avenues for international tourists in India. It has been a great shame for us that India has not been even among the top ten in the international market. We have breathtaking views of the Himalayas, beautiful valleys, wonderful hill stations, very rich wildlife, including the tiger and the rhino reserves. India can boast of fascinating beaches in Goa and Kerala.
We have the TajMahal and the Fatehpur Sikri in Agra; Madurai and Tanjavur in Tamil Nadu; Sanchi in MP and Nalanda in Bihar. The ghats of Varanasi and feudal splendours of Rajasthan need no introduction. Only we will have to revamp our strategies. We will have to re-woo our tourists. Instead of running after the recession hit western Europe and America, we must explore new avenues in China, Russia and Brazil. China attaches 50.9 million tourists every year. India manages just 5.1 million tourists. We will have to fill up the gap.
Domestic tourism can’t be neglected. States like Karnataka and Kerala have shown the way to the other states of India. They have attracted budget domestic tourists by providing clean and affordable accommodation. Enhanced infrastructure, such as good roads, airports and good hygiene will attract more international as well as domestic tourists. Surely, the tourism industry can bring valuable income to the country.

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards that there is no bus stop within a radius of two kilometres in Shantanagar Complex. The residents find it very difficult to go up to the bus stop.
The poor people have either to spend money on Rikshaws or walk for two kilometres. The old and children are the main sufferers, who cannot walk up to the bus stop.
Through your esteemed newspaper, I want the authorities to pay heed to our complex so that we are also able to lead a comfortable life.

Sub: Misuse and poor maintenance of Public Park
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned civic authorities towards the misuse and poor maintenance of the Public Park in our area.
Of late the park is being let out for marriages and other social functions. After these functions usually eatables and polythene packets or waste paper plates, plastic bowls, etc., are found lying here and there. Secondly, the grass is uprooted also to pitch the shamianas. The flowers get trampled over by the crowds. Thus the public park has become totally ravaged. The civic authorities have debuted only a part-time gardener for the maintenance of the park. Since there is no Watchman on duty, some uncivil persons drop their household wastes there, making it a dump-bin.
Hence, it is our request that the civic authorities should take immediate steps to check misuse of the park and initiate effective measures for its proper maintenance. Looking forward to promoting measures by the concerned authorities.

Subject: Organization of a tree plantation programme.
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to voice the need for organizing tree plantation programmes that can keep our environment green and provide us with fresh air. Last week our school, S.C. Bose Sr. Sec. School, organized a tree plantation programme.
Teachers, as well as students, participated in this programme with great enthusiasm. It was indeed a pleasant sight to see numerous members of the teaching faculty and students busily digging up the earth to plant a tree. The Principal of our school also planted his share of saplings. It felt great to see such an overwhelming response to the tree plantation programme and it was decided that we would organise such programmes in future at other places also and plant as many trees as possible.
I strongly feel that more and more such tree plantation programmes should be organised by the institutions.
6. Write a letter to the editor of a local daily complaining against the school-bus drivers who drive rashly and also about over-crowding of buses, causing risk to the lives of innocent school children. You are Dipti/Deepak from C-4C, Janak Puri, New Delhi.

Subject: Rash driving and over-crowding in school buses.
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the authorities and the general public towards the sheer negligence and carelessness of school-bus drivers. Not only the buses are overcrowded, the drivers too indulge in rash driving.
Thus, they expose the innocent school children to high risks. Only recently a school bus struck against the railings of the bridge and fell down into the Yamuna. Such mishaps are the result of reckless driving only.
I, therefore, appeal to the traffic police and school authorities to take measures to restrain the errant drivers. Will the concerned authorities look seriously into this?

Subject: Poor voltage problem in Subzi Mandi area.
Through your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the authorities to the plight of people in our locality due to a poor voltage supply. For the last month, there had been an erratic power supply with the result that all our domestic electronic appliances have developed some kind of snag or the other.
Things like fridge, micro ovens, air conditioners, room coolers, etc. have stopped functioning at all. The local mechanic says that it is due to low voltage.
Thus, on behalf of all the residents, I appeal to the electricity department to ensure proper levels of voltage in our area.

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards water-borne diseases.
‘Summer’ may be a delightful word for the English poets but it is a horrible word for Indians. It is full of mosquitoes and flies. Water, during summer, is not only dirty but highly polluted also. Many times sewerage water also gets mixed with freshwater causing the fear of breaking out of the diseases like cholera, gastroenteritis and a host of other deadly diseases.
The civic authorities should wake up from their slumber and solve this problem without any more delay.

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards World Environment Day is celebrated to remind us of the things we can do to protect the environment.
What I can do is renew my bond with nature by recognising the right of all living things to live on this planet; improve our environmental awareness about the current environmental trends and problems and what needs to be done practising the 3 ‘Rs’ — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Reduce by minimising waste. Reuse by using it. Recycle by processing it. Spread the environmental message; support local environmental groups; use our citizen and consumer rights to participate in the formulation of government policies regarding the environment and remind companies to be more environmentally friendly.
In these ways, we can help protect the environment.
10. The problem of parking is increasing day by day, due to rise in population and the number of vehicles. Every day you come to know about the road rage and quarrels, due to this menace.

Ans. 40-B, Cool Road

Sub: – Rise in Population and Vehicles
Let me express my concern about the growing cases of road rage, quarrels and accidents through the columns of your popular paper.
Due to the rise in population and increase in materialistic desires and income, the number of private vehicles — cars, motorbikes, scooters, etc. — has multiplied over a few years. The roads are broken and narrow and are unable to cope with the pressure of traffic. People lack traffic sense and violate all traffic rules. Consequently, they lose patience and cause minor or major accidents. These accidents lead to road rage and quarrels.
The traffic police should take stringent steps against the violators of traffic rules. The government should put a partial ban on the use of private vehicles. The public should also pool cars to decrease the number of vehicles on roads. All these steps will ease the traffic and help in reducing road rage and quarrels over minor issues.
11. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper expressing your views on the conflict between faith and growth in not more than 120 words on the basis of the points given below. You are Raman/Deepika of 101, Sector 5, Mohali. You may take clues from the MCB unit ‘People’ as also those given below.

Subject: Conflict between faith and growth
Let me express my views on the conflict between faith and growth through the columns of your popular newspaper.
In India, the majority of people are still illiterate and superstitious with strong religious beliefs. They do not have a realistic and rational approach to life. That is why they often oppose even those schemes and projects which are meant for their own betterment and welfare. Sometimes the authorities in their excessive zeal for growth become irrational by ignoring the mindset of the common people. The result is a sort of conflict between faith and growth. Sometimes this conflict becomes aggressive and violent in nature.
There are many examples of such conflict in our country. The recent one is between the devotees of Lord Rama and the advocates of demolishing Ram Setu to build a sort of passage in the Indian Ocean for shipping benefits. This has resulted in much bitterness at the highest level. In our towns and cities, roads remain congested and a source of traffic jams because people refuse to demolish their places of worship or statues of their idols constructed along the passage. Sometimes they even object to the constructing or blocking off a path on one or the other traditional belief.
In order to avoid all conflicts between faith and growth, the authorities or persons in power should adopt a tactful approach to convince people about what is right and what is wrong. They should go slow and be practical.
