Subject : Claim for Damages.
A large consignemnt of school furniture—chairs, desks, benches etc. was booked by us from Haldwani by Northern Railway. When we went to take delivery of the aforesaid consignment, we noticed several chairs and desks badly broken or damaged. This damage was apparently caused by careless handling of the same by the coolies at the time of loading and unloading the furniture. The responsibility of the loss caused to us exclusively rests with the Railway staff. The loss caused to us is approximately twelve thousand rupees. Consequently we lodge herewith our claim for damages worth Rs. 12,000/- and request you to make an early enquiry on the spot and pass our claim for the said amount for early payment.
Thanking you in anticipation.

(1) Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper making suggestion how the present government can effectively solve the problems India is at present beset with.
The Times of India,
The way the things are going on present day society in India is a cause of deep concern to all right thinking people. It is indeed a sad irony that after the passage of about six decades since independence, the nation finds itself caught in the grip of terrorism and extremism. It is during the last three years that this problem has taken a worse turn. It is sadder to note that innocent lives have been the target of the well-trained terrorists.
Effective and stern measures are to be taken in order to salvage the situation otherwise an emotionally weak country will also become politically and militarily weak, resulting in the unwatned interest of the other countries in us. Our freedom itself would be put in jeopardy if the government does not put in all that it has at its disposal. The brutal broad day light murder of some prominent leaders of Uttar Pradesh has left the country stunned.
The whole approach towards this increasing problem needs a thorough and major operation. The Govt. must first of all, instil confidence among the common men who have been badly and severely affected by the problem. This can be done with the active help and co-operation of people themselves. Each mohalla or colony should form a peace committee. Secondly, people must be trained and armed to patrol their areas at nights. This will not only be a positive approach towards restoration of peace but also relieve the heavily burdened police force. Thirdly, the Govt. must see to it that rumours do not disturb the peace of society. Fourthly, the major installations and establishments in the country should be given round-the-clock vigil. Fifthly, whenever an untoward incident occurs, the administration must deal with the same with a heavy hand. Lastly, an atmosphere must be created against terrorism and extremism with the help of press, radio, T.V. and other Govt. media.
It is my humble submission that these measures are not completed and cannot be termed as final. However, practical use of these will go a long way towards restoring harmony, love and confidence, etc. among the stunned people of the shocked society.

The Health Officer,
With due respect we, the residents of Namak-ki-Mandi, invite your attention to the insanitary condition of our locality. Heaps of rubbish are lying everywhere. It has become a permanent abode for the flies, which spread epidemic diseases. Moreover, the drains of the locality are not cleaned everyday. We have asked the Jamandar of the locality to pay attention of his duties, but all in vain. The strects are full of dirty water at all hours, as a result of which mosquitoes are breeding in large number spreading malaria. If this condition continues for some days more, there is every danger of some diseases breaking out in locality.
We have already brought the matter to the notice of the Sanitary Inspector, but that too has been useless. He has given a mild warning to the sweepers and the Jamadar, who have cared a fig for it at all.
We, therefore, request you to take your personal interest in the matter to remove the nuisance at the soonest.
Hoping to receive your immediate favourable consideration.

Most respectfully I beg to inform you that some undesirable persons have disturbed the peace in our locality. They have made a gang and commit theft at night. They have created a terror among the people. People do not feel that their life and property is safe. They also pass undesirable and ugly remarks when ladies pass their locality. They also snatch money and valuable things when night falls. So respectable and rich persons are thinking of leaving this locality and shifting to other places.

The District Medical Officer of Health
I wish to draw your kind attention to insanitary conditions prevailing around Bulandshahr. if you visit the place, you will see heaps of rubbish and garbage dumped along the streets and dirty, stooly water overflowing the drains.
These dirty places have become breeding grounds for flies and mosquitoes. Obviously, the environment as a whole presents a serious health hazard. Flies are increasing by leaps and bounds. They sit on eatables, especially on sweets and spread germs of cholera. Several cases of cholera have been recorded in the district hospital. The inhabitants of the city are suffering due to outbreak of cholera.
I hope you will look into the matter personally and make proper arrangements to eradicate the menace as early as possible by improving the sanitary condition of the city and furnishing the hospital with necessary medicines and qualified staff.

(15) Write a letter to the Collector stating the need of multipurpose stadium in your town.
Jugal Kishore Jain,
Mahatma Phule Road,

Subject : Construction of a multipurpose stadium.
This is to draw your urgent attention to the need of a multipurpose stadium in Nasik District, a home place of wrestling and many other sports and games.
Asiad–1982 held at New Delhi in our country has given our youths a tremendous impetus. However, the sorry tale is that they are still unable to get proper coaching, training and guidance in the right direction. For want of all these, our nation is losing tremendously in the field of sports and games. A multipurpose stadium in Nasik, a central place for many of the villages and towns nearly Nasik-city will be a right place for organizing such kind of activities. Regular training of competitions camps and tournaments and competitions, then, can be held there, which will serve the cause of sports and games.
Since the government encourages these activities, construction of such a stadium will be a right step in the right direction for the furtherance of sports and games. I, therefore, request you to pay attention to this need of our youths and provide them with such an opportunity.

(17) Write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, complaining that the primary school children are given to much home work these days.

Opp. V.T. Railway Station,
Subject : Excessive home work in schools.
These are my observations for more than last four months that all the children going to primary schools have been burdened with a lot of home work. It was only about 8 to 10 days after schools reopened in the month of June that the children in the nearby colony and our colony came to the grounds to play and frolic. It is our usual experience that the grounds and the streets nearby are crowded and full of noise and shouts in the evening time. But this year since the month of July, there have been hardly any crowds and noises and shouts. When the cause of this unusual calm and quiet was inquired for, it was learnt that the children were awfully busy doing their homework. This work is compulsory and if a child fails to complete it, he has to undergo severe punishment.
Childhood is the time when children should have fun and frolic. Home-work and studies, no doubt, are essential, but everything should have its own limits. If children are kept under the fear of punishments and compulsion of the completion of the work, they are likely to get a nausea for home-work and turn into dunces. What they would do is only to cram things without understanding and curiosity. Then it is positive danger to the whole future generation.
The teachers hereby through this letter are appealed not to burden too primary children with home-work.
I hope this letter of mine will find due space in your esteemed paper.

The Police Superintendent,
Aurangabad Police Station
We are a group of friends from Mumbai who are at present staying at the Tourist Resort here. We have come here to visit the Ajanta and Ellora caves. I was selected as the leader of the group and I had all the money of my friends and also some valuables like the camera, video camera, tape recorders, etc. I had kept everything in a hand bag and when we went to see Ajanta and Ellora, I had it with me. As we entered the cave, the feeling of movement was extraordinary. It was almost cinematographic. As we were osberving the art, I felt someone pulling my bag from my hand. It was dark all over. I shouted for help but no one could find the person who pulled my bag and ran away with it.
Sir, I am really helpless. The bag contained money and valuables worth Rs. 50,000. Please investigate into the matter so that we can go back to Mumbai.
