Subject: Disturbances caused by the thoughtless use of loudspeakers.


I shall be highly obliged if you kindly publish the following matter in your esteemeddaily.

I am writing this letter to express my anguish and annoyance over the problem caused by the thoughtless use of loudspeakers. I am a student class ten. Now a day it has become so disturbing to the extent that we no longer concentrate at our study properly. There are thousands of students like me who have to suffer on account of this problem. Besides, there are some old patients and new born babies in every locality who get affected by this noise pollution.

So, therefore sir, on behalf of all the students and general people of the city I plead and appeal to concerned authorities to look into the matter and take necessary action to solve this deadly problem.

Yours faithfully,

Suranjan Ghosh
