Sub: Reckless Driving.


I shall be highly obliged to you if you kindly publish this representation against reckless driving in your esteemed daily. At present journey by bus or mini-bus has been awfully perilous. The happy-go-lucky drivers drive their vehicles at break-neck speed. They seem to have no respect for traffic rules. In most cases, road accidents take place on account of reckless driving. Over-taking is common to all drivers. Several accidents were caused in the past for overtaking. There are control the traffic. But everybody knows that reckless driving does not affect the traffic police. They keep standing as policemen to as passive onlookers. Should we then think that there is an unholy nexus between the police and the erring bus drivers?

Please insert this representation in your daily and draw the attention of the appropriate authority to this problem.

Yours faithfully,
Sovan Sil.

Dear Hans,
I received your letter today. I am completely disappointed to know your examination result. You mentioned in the letter that there is a lack of good books and a peaceful atmosphere at your home so you could not study properly. Here is the solution to your problem. I know of a famous public library in your locality. Go there and get a membership today. Public libraries are open to all and you can go there anytime to study peacefully. It is a very useful institution. You can read a huge number of books on various subjects and can even borrow books. It is an appropriate place for close and careful study.

You must visit the library as frequently as possible. When you will find so many readers there absorbed in books you will naturally develop a desire to read. So going to the library will help you develop a reading habit. You can pass all your leisure time going to the library. It will surely become your best friend, philosopher, and guide.

No more today. Will discuss the rest on we meet.

Yours ever,
Sanjoy Ray

Activity 7

2. Write a paragraph within 100 words on the benefits of early morning exercises using the following points.
[Points: good for health – fresh air – keeps one active throughout the day] 

Benefits of Morning Exercises

The human body is a valuable performance vehicle. To boost our energy level, we need to get up early and take some exercises. To wake up with the sun itself is a gift of life. The air is cool and the mind is calm. It helps us to master the time of the day. A few miles on the treadmill, or in the open air supply oxygen to our body and mind. Star jumps, jogging, squatting, sit-ups, push-ups, etc help us to stay fit for years. Regular exercise improves health, clears thoughts, hones up creativity, and manages stress. It’s said that in a sound body rests a sound mind. Those who don’t make time for exercise must eventually make time for illness. Exercises not only add years to life, but add life to years also.

We need a building to live in. Constructing a building requires a sequence of planning. The following steps are to be followed to construct a building. Firstly, the architect is supposed to draw a plan of the building that is to be made. Then the plan has to get sanctioned by the Corporation or the municipal authorities. Then begins the job of the masons and the labourers who start to get the building built with bricks, cement, and sand. After that doors and windows are fitted, followed by plastering of the walls. Power and water connections are to be set up before lending a final touch to the building by painting it beautifully. Thus, a building is ready for staying in.

Activity 5

1. Write a letter within 100 words to the editor of an English daily about the disturbance caused by the thoughtless use of loudspeakers.

Sub: Use of Loudspeakers


I am driven to write about our displeasure caused by the misuse of loudspeakers in our locality. During every feast and festival, the use of speakers has become an awful fashion. Now youngsters organize the pujas. And in the name of worship, they use the loudspeaker at a top pitch from dawn to midnight. It gives out film songs. The organizers have no consideration for the patients and students. At night the sound becomes so high that it disturbs our sleep. Appeals to their good sense go to deaf ears. They do not understand that the din causes inconveniences to the public and unrest to the patient. Besides these festivals, the music is also used during marriage ceremonies, political meetings, and any public gatherings.

Of late Calcutta High Court has issued orders restricting the use of loudspeakers. But the rules are observed more in violation than in observation. There is a reason that the police at present are indifferent to such a social nuisance. It is a serious source of sound pollution.

Will the authorities wake up to exercise an effective step to put an end to this social nuisance?

Yours faithfully
Anirban Maiti
