Subject : Increase in Road Rage
I am writing to draw your attention towards the increase in road rage in the recent past. As the number of vehicles on Delhi roads are growing day by day, the problems are also rising innumerably. In this heavy traffic, it is common for the vehicles to get minor scratches, a little push or a small brushing while passing another car.
However, this leads to a scuffle, often resulting in a verbal or physical fight and sometimes even murder.
The only way to put a stop to this nuisance is by using surveillance technology to keep a check on any impulsive actions on the road. Other than this stricter traffic laws must be implemented to make roads safer. As far as individuals are concerned, it is best to find alternative routes in order to avoid confrontations.
I hope my views will be considered for public benefit.
Question. When cricket teams go abroad the members are allowed to take their wives, even friends along with them. Does this fact distract them or help them to focus on their game in a better way? If it is good, why don’t we allow our athletes to enjoy the same privilege? Write a letter to editor of a national daily in 120-150 words giving your views on the issue. You are Navtej/Navita, M-114 Mount Kailash, Kanpur.

Subject: Difference in Status of Cricketers and Other Athletes
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to express my views on the difference in the status of cricketers and other atheletes.
Cricket is a very popular game in India and cricketers are idolised. The public as well as the officials are willing to give special privileges to them. The extent of their love is such that rules are easily bent for them. Cricketers are allowed to take their families with them when they go on tours, irrespective of the fact that this may distract them while playing. But when it comes to other games, Indian Government becomes rather stingy and the athletes do not get the same treatment. Why do we have different policies? I believe this is because cricket and cricketers are worshipped, while the other sports and their players are ignored. Even the finances that are allotted to these games are either too less or are utilised by the officers themselves.
The perspective of Indians needs a revolution and all the games deserve equal treatment, after all they all bring glory to the country. Government needs to implement measures to keep all the games at par.

Subject: Problems Caused by Open Manholes
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I want to draw the attention of the Municipal Commissioner of the area of Civil Lines Extension Chanakyapuri, regarding the problem of three open manholes in the main road leading to our locality.
The open manholes have already caused several accidents in the short period of four months, most of which occurred after dark. The situation worsens during the rainy season. Even a slight down pour causes the manholes to overflow and flood the main road. The manholes are a breeding ground for various germs and diseases, which are a threat not only to kids but adults as well. Moreover, the stench coming from the open manholes is unbearable.
Due to the above mentioned problems, residents of my locality and all the neighbouring localities are facing a lot of inconveniences day in and day out. I have written to the municipal corporation many times regarding the issue, requesting them to cover the manholes. However, nothing has been done about it yet.
The problem can be easily dealt with by timely action and regular monitoring. I wish that the concerned authority takes a note of the situation and takes remedial actions at the earliest.
Question. Games and sports are not given so much importance in the country as is given to academics. As a result of this our achievements in the international arena are not very spectacular. Write a letter to the Editor of a national daily on the importance of sports and games and on the need to create awareness about it. You are Sunita/Sameer, 8/35, M.G. Road, Bangalore.

Subject: Creating Awareness About the Importance of Sports and Games
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of general public towards the fact that games and sports are not given as much importance in our country as is given to academics. As a result, our achievements in the international arena are not very spectacular.
Sports and games are gradually losing their importance because there is not much awareness, therefore it needs to be created. The recent Olympic Games have proven that India has the potential to perform well in sports. Yet, there are only a handful of athletes representing the country out of which only few win medals.
In an attempt to make a good career with lucrative job, academics is given the most importance in our country. Students are required to score high in all subjects for which they work extremely hard, more often than not, by ignoring sports and games.
Students and parents must understand that sports and games are necessary for all-round development of children. They become fitter, smarter and healthier by playing sports and games. People are so busy running in the rat race that they fail to realise that sports is a great career option as well. Sports people and athletes not only become the face of the country but also they earn well.
With this letter, I wish to create awareness amongst parents and students that involvement in sports and games is not a wastage of time and energy.
I hope that I have been able to highlight the problem in this letter and that, in future, sports and games will be given equal importance as is given to academics.

Question. You are Sruthi/Shiraj staying at R.K. Puram, Secunderabad. Your locality being away from the main city, the poor bus service adversely affects the life of residents. Write a letter to the Editor, Deccan Chronicle, highlighting the problems faced and also giving a few possible solutions.

Subject: Poor Bus Service
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to the poor bus service for the residents of R. K. Puram, Secunderabad. It is a huge colony situated on the outskirts of the city with a population of more than ten thousand people. I would like to inform you that due to poor bus service, lives of the residents are getting adversely affected. People have to walk a long distance to reach the bus stop. Since the frequency of the buses in the area is low, people have to wait for thirty minutes to one hour. At times, buses do not even stop. Worst affected are the school children and office goers. As they are left with no other option than to hire expensive private modes of transport, such as private auto rickshaws, taxis, etc.
Buses coming from the other side are always overcrowded. They are so jam packed that many passengers face difficulty in boarding them.
What is more shocking is the indifferent attitude of the drivers and conductors, who, at times, cause inconvenience to the passengers, by talking back and using indecent language.
Being someone getting affected by poor bus service every day, I have sent pleas for quick action to the transport authority numerous times. But nothing has been said or done about it. The problem can be easily dealt with if adequate measures are taken. First and foremost, there should be a few additional buses plying on this route so that people do not have to wait for a long time to reach their destination. More number of buses will prevent over crowding and allowing passengers to commute comfortably.
Strict action should be taken against irresponsible and misbehaving bus drivers and conductors, who try to create nuisance for the passengers.
I hope I have been able to highlight the problem in this letter and that adequate measures will be taken without further delay.
Looking forward to a positive change.
Question. Write a letter the Editor, ‘The Hindu’ about the mosquito menace due to stagnant water in your locality. Give suggestions to improve the situation. You are Raman/Renu, living in Rajaji Nagar, Tiruneveli.

Subject: Mosquito Menace in the Locality
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authority towards the mosquito menace in our locality.
I am a resident of Ram Vilas Society, which is situated in one of the poshest localities of Rajaji Nagar. However, due to lack of maintenance, the locality has lost its charm. One of the empty plots has, by default, become the garbage dumping ground. In addition, the heavy down pour last month let a lot of water get accumulated in the ground. The unattended garbage and the stagnant water has resulted in breeding of mosquitoes and other harmful germs. Due to the negligence of the authorities the entire locality is living in fear that epidemic may break any time now.
Despite many requests to the officers of the Municipal Corporation, the ground has not been cleared and dried off for a very long time. Children and adults are still exposed to multiple diseases because of unhygienic conditions within the locality. The situation needs to be checked soon as it is hazardous for everyone’s health. I wish that the authorities will pay heed to our urgent requests and take remedial action immediately.

This is to inform you that recently, I bought a Nokia 6100 phone from your showroom, ‘The Phone Point’ with receipt no. 0523, dated 10 February 20××. The handset was bought with a warranty of one year. It worked smoothly for nearly 20 days. Of late, I discovered that the phone keeps on hanging within few minutes usage. Also, whenever I call or receive a call neither mine, nor the caller’s voice is properly audible. Although it is a brand new phone, it has already become a nuisance, which is now unbearable. Since the mobile phone is still in warranty period I would request you to kindly help me by either rectifying the defect or else please replace the handset against the warranty that goes with it.
The Phone Point enjoys a great reputation and goodwill in the market. I would highly appreciate it if you would look into the matter at the earliest.
Looking forward to hear from you.
