Sub: Awareness of basic health and hygiene in Bihar villages

Sir,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the need for awareness of basic health or hygiene in remote villages in Bihar.

I took part in a medical camp organized by ‘The Lion’s Club’ in a remote village in Bihar. I was shocked to see the pathetic condition of the people living there. I was surprised to know that most of the people have no awareness of basic health or hygiene. They live in primitive and sub-human conditions. There is no arrangement for clean drinking water. The drains are open. They stink and breed mosquitoes, flies, and insects. The people frequently suffer from many diseases like malaria, dysentery, and TB.

The Club has decided to take up their cause seriously and organize camps in the remote villages. The villagers will be enlightened about the need to maintain proper health and hygiene. There is a plan for opening a small dispensary there. Youngsters will be encouraged to volunteer their service for the noble cause.

Yours faithfully

 Sub: Need to save and harvest water

 Sir,

Through the column of your prestigious newspaper, I want to highlight the urgent need to save and harvest water and raise the water table.

Water is a basic necessity for human beings, animals, and birds. The globalization of our economy has given free rein to multinationals. A bottling of water is a thriving business in India. The companies are minting money in the name of providing pure and clean water to people. Rivers are being sold. They are eyeing water supply in big cities. They play no role in conserving water. Water resources are facing a serious threat of depletion. Wells, hand pumps, and tube wells are sucked dry. If the water table falls, farmers will not be able to cultivate crops. It will create chaotic conditions.

 The Government and the public must understand the urgent need to save water. We should not waste a drop of water. Water harvesting must be done on a large scale in the rainy season. We must store water in lakes, tanks, and ponds. Recycling of water is the need of the hour. Let us take urgent steps to meet an urgent situation. Act before it is too late and the situation becomes beyond redemption.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Deplorable sanitary conditions

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I am constrained to express my resentment and dismay at the deplorable sanitary conditions prevailing in our area. I am a resident of Begumpet, Hyderabad. The area is hardly suitable for human habitation.

First things first, the number of sweepers employed in this area doesn’t meet the demands of the residents. As a result, heaps of garbage are piled up in the lanes. The drains are open and hence, they get blocked very often. Waterlogging is another serious problem in the area. Water starts stagnating and becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. During the summer and the rainy season, the residents suffer from water-borne diseases, like cholera, malaria, and dysentery. In spite of repeated reminders, the concerned authorities have been sleeping over the problem.

The number of safari karamcharies must be increased. Waterlogging demands prompt attention. All such steps will surely improve the sanitary conditions of the area and make it a pleasant place to live in.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Making educational curriculum flexible and relevant

 Sir,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to bring to your notice that our educational curriculum doesn’t meet the requirements of the changing economy and environment.

 It is quite unfortunate that education and schooling have become so boring and uninteresting. The children are treated like machines and fed on mere facts. The curriculum lacks flexibility and relevance. Such static and stagnant education system can’t meet the requirements of liberalization and globalization.

The whole system and curriculum need to be restructured. Instead of producing clerks and civil servants, it must aim to produce better managers, bankers, technocrats, and scientists. Those who prepare the educational curriculum must remember that their aim must be to produce harmonious personalities. Our education must produce such enlightened and talented young men who may face the challenges of the changing economy and environment.

Sub: Proposal to allocate 80-acre green belt for a housing colony

 Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards Proposal to allocate an 80-acre green belt for a housing colony.

The beautiful city of Bhopal is slowly but surely being converted into a concrete jungle. The recent decision of the Bhopal Development Authority to allow80-acre greenbelt near Ram Nagar for building a housing colony is quite unfortunate. As expected, the proposed project is meeting stiff opposition from the environmentalists and the residents of Ram Nagar. The green belts and forests are the support-line and lungs of Bhopal.

This project will lead to felling of innumerable trees. It will degrade the environment and the landscape. It is in the interest of residents and the environment to drop this project for good. I hope the Authority will never entertain the idea of spoiling peace, tranquillity, landscape, and the environment of the place and the city.

Sub: More ‘University Special’ buses for students

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to remind the concerned authorities about the urgent need of adding more University Special’ buses for students.

Delhi University and its affiliated colleges have thousands of new students on their roles in recent years. These students come from different parts of the city. They face a lot of inconveniences to reach their respective colleges. The authorities have arranged for some ‘University Special’ buses for the students. However, their number is too small to meet the growing demand of students. The buses are overcrowded. Many students have to stand on the foot-boards. They frequently hurt themselves and sometimes they meet with serious accidents.

The number of `University Special’ buses should be increased to meet the requirements of students on different routes. The authorities can hire additional buses to meet the requirements on an ad-hoc basis. These steps if taken in right earnest will definitely relieve the situation to a large extent.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Combating terrorism and Naxalism

 Sir

 Through the column of your esteemed national daily, I want to express my deep concern and dismay at the growing terrorist and Naxal activities in different parts of India.

Terrorism seems to have become a part and parcel of life in this problem-ridden world. In India, terrorism flourished on a big scale only in the 1990s in Jammu and Kashmir. Before that, we had isolated terrorist activities in Nagaland and Mizoram. But Jammu and Kashmir’s terrorist groups have highlighted their widespread activities on an international scale. `Lashkar-e-Taiba’ `Jaish-e-Mohammad’ and HizbulMujahideen’ have international links. They are morally and materially supported and funded by Pakistan. Our armed forces must equip themselves fully to root out terrorist hideouts from Indian soil.

Naxalism is a different problem. It grew in Bengal and Andhra due to economic, social, and agrarian disparities. Influenced by Maoism, the Naxalites have spread their activities in many other parts of India including Jharkhand, Odisha, and Maharashtra. Removing economic and social disparities and introducing agrarian reforms can attack the basic roots of Maoists. The police and the armed forces can’t allow and condone violence and murders of innocent people. The armed might of the state must crush all such anti-national activities. The earlier it is done, the better it will be for peace and prosperity in India.

Sub: Wanton killing and poaching of wild animals for furs and fashion

 Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to express my deep concern and anxiety over the killing and poaching of wild animals. The most unfortunate thing is that they are killed and poached for fun, fashion, and luxury. Every year thousands of foxes, deer, tigers, elephants, crocodiles, and snakes are illegally hunted down and poached.

Many animals are on the verge of extinction. The survival of animals has linked with the survival of man himself. Any imbalance will have far-reaching consequences for the ecology, environment, and human survival. Shrinkage of forests has threatened the very existence of animals.

 Ivory items, jewellery, purses, fur coats, caps, and medicines are made from animals. The poaching and killing of animals for fashions must be stopped forthwith. The guilty must be given exemplary punishments. The concerned authorities must take all possible steps to let wild animals live in peace in their safe surroundings.

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 menace of stray dogs.

The menace of stray dogs has assumed an alarming proportion in our cities and towns. It is generally very difficult for one to visit the house of a friend or relative.

We often hear children and old people in particular bitten by stray dogs. The superstitious people in our society throw chapattis to these dogs to earn blessings of God and these brutal creatures thus flourish and multiply on their charity. The municipal corporations and committees should take effective steps to control the population of these ferocious dogs.

 Thank you.

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities and common masses towards Expressing Views on Environmental Pollution. Environmental pollution has reached its peak level in our country. In particular, our cities are no longer livable.

 Air pollution is being caused by ruthless cutting down of trees, chimneys of factories, emissions from motor vehicles, burning of coal, wood and other fossil fuel, etc.

 Soil and water pollution is being caused by factory effluents, excessive use of pesticides and insecticides, etc. Noise pollution is being caused by loudspeakers, high volumes of radio and TV sets, horns and buzzers, loud voices in markets, etc. Pollution of all these kinds is dangerous for mankind. Effective steps should be taken to check them in every possible way. Thank you.

Sub.: Health Hazards Caused by Junk Food.

Sir,

Through the lines of your esteemed paper, I want to pinpoint about 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 nauseating etc. They disturb our circulatory system as well as digestion. So many diseases surround us and we have to knock 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.

 Yours faithfully,

 Santra Barbara

Subject:  Exploitation of teachers in private schools

 Dear Sir

 I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned with the exploitation of teachers in private institutes.

Being a school teacher is not easy in the capital. From being a temple of learning, these institutions are fast turning into profit-making enterprises. Despite the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission, teachers are often forced into accepting meagre salaries. Their poor working conditions affect the quality of teaching.

This serious issue needs urgent attention of the authorities concerned.

Yours sincerely
