Sub: Consequences of climatic changes

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, I want to express my deep concern and anxiety about the climatic changes due to various man-made reasons.

Man is responsible for all the degradation of the environment. It started with the indiscriminate felling of trees. Deforestation has led to innumerable harms to the environment and ecology. Trees provide oxygen and absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. The clearing of forests led to droughts and dry spells. This has resulted in global warming and sudden climatic changes.

Letter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (1)

Pollution of air, water, and the land is making our living quite miserable. Our seas, rivers, and lakes are also polluted. They have become dumping grounds for human and industrial wastes. Glaciers are melting. So are the ice volumes of the Poles. Man’s unlimited needs and limited natural resources are further aggravating the problem. Unplanned urbanization and industrialization have adversely affected the landscape and climate. Let us check the degradation of the environment and make this planet a pleasant place for human habitation.

Yours faithfully

Sub: CO2 and Global Warming

Sir,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the increase in the carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere. This has resulted in global warming and the rise in global temperature. We are condemned to pay a very high price of development and progress. Over the last decade, our environment and atmosphere have suffered severe degradation. The content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been steadily but surely on the rise.

In 1991, its level in the atmosphere was near 855. In ten years, it has goneLetter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (2) up to 870. Similarly, global warming has resulted in a steep rise in temperature. The larger the content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the greater is the global warming. Nothing has caused so much havoc as the deforestation done on a very large scale. Trees are the main source of oxygen. The burning of firewood, coal, and LPG increases the CO2 level in the atmosphere. Vehicular smoke is another cause of enhancing the CO2 level. If effective and prompt steps are not taken to minimize the CO2 level, the whole atmosphere will turn into a gas chamber.

We have to strike a balance between progress and survival. All factories, vehicles, and devices that produce more than the required level of CO2, must be banned. Reforestation must be launched on a big scale to counter the rise of CO2 in the atmosphere. Save the atmosphere. Otherwise, our survival itself is in danger.

Sub: Increase in road accidents in metros

Sir

Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, kindly allow me to express my great concern and anxiety at the increase in road accidents in the metropolitan cities of India.

It is quite disturbing that over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the number of people killed in road accidents in our country. In the year 2013, 2014 and 2015, 137,000, 139,671 and 146,000 people died respectively in road accidents in India. Most of these accidents were caused by rash and negligent driving. Drinking and driving have become quite a common feature.

Letter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (3)The rules of road safety and caution are thrown to the winds. The concerned authorities must give exemplary punishments to the rash and negligent drivers. Drinking and driving can’t go together. The defaulters must be heavily fined or punished. The traffic police must enforce the rules and culture of the road very strictly. Only then our roads will be safe and secure.

Sir

Through the column of your prestigious daily, I want to highlight the lawlessness and chaos prevailing in Civil Lines, Amritsar. Amritsar has witnessed some unholy activities like thefts, dacoities, robberies, and even murders in recent months. This has made life quite unsafe and miserable in the city.

I am a resident of Civil Lines. It is an area inhabited by important Letter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (4)government officials, rich and powerful citizens. However, of late it has earned the notoriety of being the most criminal-prone area in the city. Every day we hear thefts and robberies committed in one part of the locality or the other. The murder of a senior citizen last month has resulted in the total loss of faith in the local police. Cases of chain snatching have become a common feature of life in the area. Women rarely move out of their houses after dark.

We suggest some immediate and effective measures to restore law and order in the area. There should be extensive police patrolling after sunset to ensure safety for young girls and women. Exemplary punishment should be given to the lawbreakers and criminals. I hope the local police will take immediate and effective steps to restore peace, law, and order in the area. The earlier, the better.

I am a resident of 12, Nai Wala Gali, Karol Bagh, New Delhi. India excels in Letter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (5)contrast. One of the major economies of the world has the maximum number of homeless poor people in the world. Millions of people in India spend their nights under the starry or cloudy skies. Many unfortunate persons fight for a little space on the pavements. Long winters become unbearable for these homeless orphans. They try to find out some shelters under the bridges, at railway stations or in public buildings. But they are hounded out from there by the police. Last month five people lost their lives due to extreme cold conditions.

The administration must show its human face. The state government must open adequate night shelters and provide free lodging for such persons. It will save hundreds of unfortunate homeless people from dying in cold or chilly nights.

Of late the city has witnessed many accidents due to the nuisance caused by stray cattle. Only a few days ago a biker was killed when a running cowLetter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (6) hit him in the middle of the road. We can’t imagine cattle strolling leisurely on the roads of New York, London, or Sydney. But India presents a totally different scene. You can find cows walking with leisurely steps on the highways or in the lanes of any city. Puri is a temple town. To make things still worse, people throw food in the middle of the roads for the animals. The roads become feeding centers of cows, bulls, horses, donkeys, and dogs.

There is no arrangement for capturing such stray cattle and sending them to the special pens run by the corporation. There should be a special squad. It should have fixed responsibilities of clearing away the roads from the unwanted and stray cattle.

I hope these lines find some space in your prestigious newspaper. I was one among a group of students who represented my state Uttar Pradesh in a national youth exchange programme in New Delhi.

Letter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (7)It was really an eye-opener. It made me realize how great India is in its plurality. The spirit of unity in diversity is really amazing. What a wonder is a country called India! Students from Mizoram, Meghalaya, Assam, Manipur, Nagaland, and Tripura presented a different world of the North-East that is fascinating as well as thrilling. Kashmiri, Dogri, Himachali students presented the splendours of a culture that throbs the valleys and foothills of the Himalayas. Only there, I realized the concept of ‘Incredible India’.

It was a novel experience to see how students of different religious, regional, cultural, and linguistic groups mingled together like one big family. It was a study in contrasts. Their complexions, traits, dresses, food-habits, and ways of life reflected a rich variety. But an underlying unity and national unity echoes in this seeming diversity. India is really incredible. Our diversity is also the strength of our unity. This spirit of national integration must be encouraged and promoted in every walk of life. We should learn to live like a family of 1.25 billion people transcending our regional, cultural, religious, and linguistic diversities.

Habitual eaters suffer from many other diseases of liver, digestion, and kidneys.

Indian handicrafts have earned quite a name and fame abroad. IndianLetter writing in English for class 10 and formal letter format for school students (11) handicrafts are in great demand in the US, Europe, and the Gulf countries.

It is shocking that most of these artisans live in perpetual poverty, want, and neglect. The Government must come out with a blueprint that may lead to the promotion of Indian handicrafts and the protection of the artisans. Co-operatives must be encouraged. The artisans and craftsmen must be provided easy loans to buy the raw products. The middlemen and crafty businessmen should not be allowed to fleece them. Only such positive steps can promote Indian handicrafts abroad and save the exploitation of the native artisans.
