Q. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper about the dangers of collapsing the multi-storeyed buildings.

Subject: Multi-storeyed Building Collapses

Sir,

Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I venture to voice my views to protest against the tragic manner in which multi-storeyed buildings collapse so frequently in the city.

While the collapse of the multi-storeyed in Bhowanipur remains fresh in our minds, another building Sibalik was hit by a similar tragedy. The building collapsed like a castle of cards! The police, the fire brigade, and the local volunteers rescued some injured persons from the debris. It is now an open secret that low-quality building materials, faulty planning, and the Corporation-Promoter nexus are at the bottom of such occurrences. Although some committees are framed by the government to look into the matter, these may get hushed up in course of time.

So, not only strict laws should be framed but its enforcement is a must to punish the offenders.

Yours faithfully,

Q. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper about a fire in the Metro Rail.

Subject: Fire in the Metro Rail

Sir,

Please allow me to focus, through the columns of your esteemed daily, on the gradual disappearance of the honeymoon bliss of the Metro service the city. The tale of the city’s pride is now in the process of gradual decline and fall.

The fire on the second coach of a Tollygunge-bound train recently created horror and panic among the commuters.

While there was no casualty, the Metro authorities have admitted that the fire-fighting arrangements at the station were inadequate. I dare say that my views are not exaggerated but based on the news of The Telegraph of 11 October.

I think it is high time that the Metro authorities should take effective steps without any further delay for the safety and punctuality of which it could once boast of. Moreover, a strong public opinion should be created through your editorial column.

Yours faithfully,

Q. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper about frequent fire accidents at buildings and markets in the city.

Subject: Frequent Fire Accidents at Buildings and Markets in the City

Sir,

Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of the authorities of the Corporation and the government to the frequent fire accidents at buildings and markets in the city.

Nearly six months after a fire that destroyed the Nandaram Market in Barabazar, flames encircled the century-old Chandni Chowk Market at Lenin Sarani around 8.40 p.m. on October 14.

Although no one was injured, the fire engulfed the valuable goods of the shops. According to an eyewitness, the fire was sparked by a short circuit. At 10.45 p.m. a company of Rapid Action Force personnel was deployed to keep the crowd at bay and the fire brigade brought the fire under control after a hard fire-fighting operation for hours.

Under the above circumstances, will it be too much to expect that the government should take immediate steps in the matter?

Yours faithfully,

Q. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper about frequent train accidents.

The Editor

Subject: Frequent Train Accidents

Sir,

Through your esteemed daily, I would like to ventilate the country’s emotion and worries on frequent train accidents.

We are yet to forget the tragic train accident of October 26, 1994, when the Howrah-bound Bombay Mail caught fire at Chakradharpur, and forty-three persons were charred in the blazing bogie.

Next, the death toll in the decade’s worst railway accident is believed to have crossed 400 when the Purushottam Express and Kalindi Express collided on August 19 near Ferozabad station of Agra in Uttar Pradesh. Then again the Gaisal train accident! About 2,800 railway accidents have occurred during the last five years and nobody has accepted the responsibility.

In such a situation, can we not expect that the government would take seriously effective measures to avoid such disasters in the future?

Yours faithfully,
Subha Ghosh

Q. Write a letter to the Editor of a newspaper on the issue of child labour.

The Editor

Subject: Child Labour in our Country

Sir,

Thank you for your editorial note dated February 8 on child labour in India.

In recent years many campaigns have been organized against employing children in mines, factories, motor garages, hotels, restaurants, tea stalls, and shops. But somehow the lot of poor children working as servants, in the households, has been overlooked. There are only a few households that provide their child servants with adequate food and clothing. They are deprived of education and their wages are paid to their parents and the money is rarely spent on them. No doubt, it is the extreme poverty of the parents that forces the children to adopt such a profession at a minor age.

And so we need strict laws and a thorough economic reform to reduce their poverty. The spread of literacy is also essential to wipe out this shameful custom still prevalent in our country.

It is high time that the exploitation of these children is brought to serious consideration.

Yours faithfully,
Sanjoy Dey
