Activity No. 1
|Write a letter to the President, Horizon Club, Town Hall, Chalisgaon making aware about the sound pollution during ceremonies.
Plot No. 20
March 21, 2024
Subject: Sound pollution due to loud Dolby sound.
I am writing to bring to your attention a concerning issue that I have recently noticed in public places, particularly in the Town Hall. It is related to the use of Dolby sound systems.
It is a great thing that Town Hall in our area is available for family and other social functions with good facilities. You have provided good parking facilities for the guests and there is no issue of traffic jam.
I am sure that your management is all aware of the rules laid down by the local police about playing Dolby sound system in public. There is actually a ban on its playing. I have mentioned this because it is the season of marriages. There were many marriages and other functions organized at the hall during last month and many parties were out of control in playing the Dolby and creating noise.
This is also the season of important examinations for school and college students. The noise pollution is hazardous not only for the students but also for the patients and children in the vicinity.
I am sure you will consider this problem seriously and ban playing Dolby sound in the Town Hall. Some of the people are thinking to lodge a complaint against the hall with the police. I request you to please do the needful at your earliest.

I am a student in your College. I am studying in Class- XIIth, Division A. Respectfully, I want to say that my father who was working in a Private firm has lost his job and is now unemployed. It is very difficult for me to pay the College fees as my parents have no regular source of income.
I am a dedicated student who is committed to my studies, and I am doing everything in my power to make ends meet. However, due to my family’s financial circumstances, I am struggling to meet the full cost of my college education.
I am hoping that the college can offer some relief in the form of a reduction in fees or a payment plan that is more manageable for my family’s financial situation. I would like to assure you that I am determined to complete my education and make a positive contribution to society.
I am willing to provide any necessary documentation or information to support my request, and I am open to discussing any potential options with you. I would be grateful for any assistance that the college can provide to help me continue my education.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration in this matter.
