April 7, 20………
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper I would like to raise the issue of the need of Road Safety Rules. Today our roads have become much risky. The major reason behind this is that people do not follow the Road Safety Rules from heart. Most of the people follow these rules only with a sense of fear of police. Whenever one finds the police absent from the scene, he or she breaks the traffic rules. Wearing helmet for the two wheeler riders, using seat belts for the four wheeler riders should become a spontanious jesture. Life is precious. It must be protected by following Road Safety Rules. The people should follow these rules by heart not with fear.

They lack the knowledge how to cross the road, where to walk on the road, where to drive their bicycle etc. It is urged that Road Safety Rules must be introduced in the syllabus of all secondary classes in Haryana. The knowledge of Road Safety Rules will make our students safe on the roads.

340, Savitri Nagar
April 19, 20……….
I saw your report-card yesterday. I was very glad to find that you have again topped your class. I congratulate you on your success. However, I have come to know that you have become a book-worm. You study from morning till late in the night. You do not devote any time to games.
Dear Naveen, studies are very important in our life. But we cannot ignore the value of games also. Games give energy to our bodies and refresh our minds. After long hours of study, the mind is tired. By playing, the mind gets the badly needed rest. You have heard that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Those who do not take part in games and study all the time, spoil their health. You must devote some time to games either in the early morning or in the evening. This will refresh your mind and you will be able to study in a better way.
I hope you will act upon my advice.
Your loving brother
