Subject: Heavy noise pollution is affecting school life
I am a student of class 10 from the Sealdah city school. I am writing this letter to you to find the solution to the issue of high noise pollution around our school area that causes serious trouble to our day-to-day school life.
For being situated in the middle of such a busy street like AJC Bose Sarani, we the students and teachers are quite familiar with a bit noisy environment from the very first day we entered the school. But recently the level of noise pollution is being intolerable day by day. The loud noise of honking and shouting creates serious problems every now and then during our classes. Especially, during our exams the issue we have to face due to this noise pollution is unimaginable. Our school authority has put several ‘no horn’ notices in front of the school but nothing worked.
So, this is my earnest request to you to take effective steps from the corporation to mitigate this issue of extreme noise pollution in this area.
Question: Your city is recently facing several problems due to the menace of extreme noise pollution. Write a letter to the local municipal commissioner of your area expressing your concern regarding the issue and suggest some possible way forward.
Hints: Matter of concern- Cause disease- Affects senior citizens and students- Awareness campaigns can help- No honking zones can be created- Police have to work more effectively

Subject: Increasing noise pollution and some ways forward
Our city is recently facing several issues due to the increasing level of noise pollution. Our area is not an exception to that as well. Through this letter, I would like to suggest some measures through which this pollution can be controlled to some extent at least.
Nowadays, noise pollution is a matter of grave concern all around the world. It causes serious chronic diseases and highly affects senior citizens as well as students. One of our fellow citizens from our locality has suffered from a major hurt attack recently due to this noise pollution.
The municipality is trying their level best but anything hardly tends to come under control. That’s why my suggestion to resolve this issue is to launch extensive awareness campaigns all around the city. Besides, the municipality can create no honking zone near the hospitals and schools. The traffic police also have to work much actively to maintain proper law and order. I think if the municipality incorporates these measures effectively, noise pollution will eventually come under control.
Question: Suppose you are the in-charge of a hospital. Patients of your hospital have to face severe issues due to heavy noise pollution in the adjacent locality. Write a letter to the municipal commissioner of the locality complaining about this issue and seek some permanent solution to it.
Hints: Hospital in a public area- Markets and main road nearby- Little noise pollution is common- Recently increased- Vulnerable patients are being victims- Tried a lot but nothing worked- Request for effective steps.

Subject: Excessive noise pollution is creating trouble for patients
I am the in-charge of Ghola Public Hospital writing this letter to you to bring under your kind concern that the noise pollution has recently excessively increased in our hospital’s adjacent locality and our patients are being a clear victim of this pollution.
There are two markets in the adjacent area of our hospital. Moreover, as the main building is located just beside the main road, we always have to deal with a little bit of noise pollution. But recently, the level of noise pollution has risen excessively. As many patients are vulnerable to high pitch noise, they’re getting into serious trouble due to the pollution. We have tried several methods to mitigate noise pollution by constructing noise-proof walls, putting several ‘no horn’ notices, but nothing have served the purpose.
So, through this letter, I would like to request you to take some effective immediate steps to control the situation and save our patients from the menace of noise pollution.
