Give my regards to mom and love to Chhotu.

Q. 4. Write a letter to the district magistrate about nuisance caused by the use of loud speakers.
1st April, 20….
The District Magistrate.
I want to draw your attention to the nuisance caused by the use of loud-speakers. I am a student of graduation and my examinations are near. It is a time when all the students are busy day and night preparing for the examinations. Their success depends upon the proper use of their time and the concentration of their minds. It is regrettable that majority of citizens do not realise the importance of this time for students. They enjoy full liberty to use loud-speakers at their highest pitch to celebrate every occasion that comes to their hands. The result is that we are unable to make preparations in the right way.
I therefore request you to kindly impose a ban on the use of loud-speakers for the period of University Examinations and punish those who are found guilty.
