1) Write a letter to the chief officer of the Pollution Control Office, Nagpur requesting to him/her to organize the campaign for celebrating Diwali without crackers.
B/651 Ram Apartments,
C. A. Main Road,
17th July, 2023.
The Chief Officer,
Pollution Control Office,
Subject: Campaign for celebrating Diwali without crackers.
This letter is with a humble request to organize an awareness campaign among the general public for celebrating Diwali festival without crackers in order to stop air pollution. We need to make the general public aware that celebrating Diwali without crackers
does not ruin the festival of lights. It will actually spare citizens from lethal doses of toxic substances that are not measured in routine pollution checks such as mercury, lead and aluminium.
The Pollution Board needs to conduct a thorough campaigning by displaying the information about the harm caused by firecrackers much more aggressively. Stringent measures are required to be taken by the board for controlling the burning due to crackers which can only be done by putting a ban on bursting crackers and cautioning people against burning of crackers.

Write a letter to the Commissioner, Municipal Corporation, Aurangabad to complain about the inconvenience caused by prolonged road – repair work going on in your area.
25th. July. 2022.
Mr. Daniel Grub
I am Ritesh Patil, a resident of M.G. Road, Aurangabad. From last one year, the M. G. Road outside our locality has been in serious need of road repair.
Due to the long-lasting need to repair, the condition of the road from bad has gone to worse. As a result, it is becoming extremely difficult to drive on the road and many a time various small accident have also taken place which have injured the people. Off late, the bad condition of the road has worsened due to water clogging and if we do not repair the road on the urgent basis, the things are going to get all the more difficult.
Therefore, I am writing this letter to bring to your attention the need of road repair in our area. I hope you will understand the situation and have a new road constructed as soon as possible after examining the site.
Thanking in anticipation.
