Subject: Health problem due to public smoking

Sir, 

I’m a fellow citizen of the beautiful city of culture, Kolkata, and a regular follower of your esteemed daily. My reason behind writing this letter today is the major cause of smoking in public places in our area. 

As you would have already noticed on my address label, I live beside a very busy road in our city. Moreover, our locality is among the most crowded areas of Kolkata. Naturally, the pollution level is higher in our area than in many other localities. Adding to this, just beside our house, a small tea shop is located that stays crowded all day long where people have tea and smoke continuously. Whenever we go out of our house, the area is full of smoke, and every now and then that smoke comes to our balcony as well. We’ve requested the tea shop owner prevent smoking in front of the shop and tried with several notices, but nothing worked. 

So, it is my earnest request to you to highlight my issue and make people a bit aware that not only do they harm themselves while smoking but also others.

Yours Sincerely,
Aniruddha Chatterjee

Subject: Prohibit smoking in public places

Sir, 

I am a daily reader of your esteemed daily. I live in quite a downtown area near Kolkata city. Very recently, a medical journal published a report on the effect of smoking in public places. Their findings were quite a matter of concern. In this letter, I would like to highlight this very issue of smoking in public places in the context of our city, state as well as the country. 

As the trend and statistics show that the young generation is being more aware of the harmful side effects of smoking, a downward curve in the number of smokers has been noticed in recent times. But unfortunately and astonishingly that hardly reduced the number of smokers in public places.  Especially in crowded areas like Kolkata city, these smokers cause severe damage to the environment along with harming themselves. According to an estimate, nearly a million people die due to this passive smoking process. 

The government should immediately become active on this issue and take steps to spread awareness and put a stop to smoking in public places. Hopefully, this voice of concern would get some light through your newspaper.

Yours Sincerely,
Maniratan Bose

Subject: Campaign to stop smoking in public places

Sir, 

I am a student of class XI from Rautela High School, Durgapur, writing this letter to you to highlight the issue of ill effects of smoking in public places and the need to spread awareness regarding this issue. 

Being an industrial belt, Durgapur has always been an epicenter of air pollution. Adding to this, recently an increasing number of smokers in public places has also been noticed in Durgapur. Smoking in public places gives birth to the problem of passive smoking that can severely damage a non-smoker’s respiratory organs as well. So, in order to spread awareness among people and put an end to this problem, our school has decided to launch a campaign to stop smoking in public places. Under this campaign, we’ve taken an agenda of handbill circulation, a door-to-door awareness program, and an awareness march against smoking in public places. 

I hope, our initiative will get some light through your esteemed daily and such public awareness programs take place in every corner of our country.

Yours sincerely,
Rohit Ranjan Roy


Example 4

Question: Suppose the government has recently passed a new law to put stop smoking in public places. Write a letter to the editor of the most popular newspaper discussing the importance of the very issue.

Subject: New law penalizes smoking in public places

Sir, 

This letter I’m writing to you to discuss the new law recently passed by the government that banned smoking in public places.

Finally, our government has come out with some legal provisions in order to put end to the problem of smoking in public places. Basically, it is one of the long-pending demands to the government from numerous activists of various different sectors like health, environment, and social welfare. Under this law, the person shall be penalized with a minimum of 7days to a 1-month jail term or a fine of not less than 2000 rupees or both.

We all know that smoking in public areas is not only affects the environment but also severely harms the non-smoking people around. In this scenario where the number of smokers in public places is increasing, such steps from the government are always welcome. But imposing a penalty can not be the only solution to this problem. I think, besides that, the government should also focus on public awareness programs that people can act voluntarily to eradicate this issue. That’ll also be a step forward to a thriving successful democracy.

Yours Sincerely,
Rohit Kumar Vardhman
