Sir,

Subject : Re-admission to class XI Science stream

I am a student of class X C of your school and have given my ICSE Board exams in March 2000. In view of the new academic session commencing next month, I wish to seek re-admission in class XI, Science stream with Mathematics.

I have been studying in the school since class I and have found the environment very conducive for learning. The teaching faculty is one of the best, with very good and cooperative staff. There is also a good mix of academics and extracurricular activities. I would therefore like to continue studying in this school for the next two years also.

The reason in opting for the science stream is my penchant for the subject, which is also my hobby. I have scored good marks in the half yearly and the pre-board examinations. The copy of my report card is enclosed for your kind perusal.

My choice of subjects is also in line with my ambition of becoming a top-notch computer engineer. I plan to join an IIT after completing my ISC. This is for I see a bright future in the realm of Information Technology, where there is tremendous potential for growth. The academic environment of the school shall enable me to realise my dream.

I sincerely desire to pursue further studies in my almamater. Kindly grant me admission in class XI in the Science stream with Mathematics for which I shall be thankful.

Yours obediently,
Siddhant Singh

Dear Sir,

Subject : Inadequate number of buses in Route no. 1

I would like to draw your kind attention, to the plight of daily commuters travelling in the city buses on route number one, which operates from the airport to Chinhat. The buses are inadequate in number and are invariably late, especially during peak morning hours.

The number of buses plying on this route, is incommensurate to the population of the colonies around the airport. Since this is the only mode of transport, for the residents, the buses are perpetually overcrowded. The office goers and the college students can be seen lined up for hours at the bus stop, waiting for buses to come, which are invariably late. The few buses that come are overcrowded. The plight of lady commuters is inexplicable. Taking advantage of the situation antisocial elements, like pickpockets have a field day.

I request you to kindly increase the number of buses and monitor their punctuality. I solicit your help in easing the difficulty of the much aggrieved daily commuter.

Yours truly,
K. K. Singh.

Dear Sir,

Subject : Sponsor of youth festival by Jagriti Youth Club

You would be happy to learn that the Jagriti Youth Club of Lucknow is planning to hold a youth festival in Ravindralaya from 10th to 12th December. The programme is dedicated to the brave Army Jawans who laid down their lives in Kargil. The proceeds of the festival, will be donated to the Kargil Fund, for the rehabilitation of the widows and children of the martyrs.

Teams from all over the state will be participating in competition like dramatics and musical concert. Eminent judges like Lachu Maharaj and Muzaffar Ali shall be attending the event. Star artists have also been invited to perform at the festival. We are expecting a good response from the general public, in view of the performance by the celebrities.

A festival of this magnitude has never been held in the city till date. The budgeted expense for the same, would work out to ₹ 10 lakh. This is because most artists are performing voluntarily, to show their solidarity with the valiant jawans.

To help us in this noble cause, we request you to kindly sponsor the event. This will give your company tremendous publicity and help promote your products. We are sure, you would like to contribute to this great cause and shall look forward to your confirmation by this week end.

Thanking you,

Yours truly, XYZ,

Dear Sir,

Subject : Problems faced by tourists visiting Lucknow

I wish to bring to your kind notice, the inconvenience caused to tourist visiting the historic city of Lucknow. Their problem begins from the moment they disembark at the railway station or the airport. There is no tourist information counter there to get information about hotels, transport and places of tourist interest in the city. They are left to the mercy of unscrupulous touts and guides, who fleece them, by taking them to shady hotels, which abound around the railway station.

In the absence of prepaid auto and taxi services, the auto rickshaws charge exorbitant fares. The rickshaw pullers cheat tourists, often creating unpleasant scenes. In places like the Bara and Chota Imambara, the unprofessional guides charge more than the normal rate and are often discourteous with the tourist, causing unpleasantness and ill will.

These incidents sully the fair reputation of the city, known for its courtesy and culture. It leaves a bad impression on the mind of the tourists. I would therefore request you to take immediate steps to redress the problem before it is too late. There is an urgent need for a tourist information counter at the railway station, and the airport, where complete information on hotels, tourist sites and road maps, are available. Special tourist buses should ply during fixed hours, in the morning and afternoon, for the benefit of passengers. Prepaid auto and taxi service should be operated at the railway station and the airport. There should be registered and trained guides with fixed remuneration, at the places of tourist interest.

These measures would attract good visitors to the city, which has good tourist potential. To augment tourist inflow an advertisement campaign in the print and the electronic media, could boost the economic development of the city. I hope you will consider the suggestions, so that tourists visiting the city have a pleasant experience.

Thanking You,

Yours truly,
Amit Sharma

My Dear Anil,

I am indeed very sorry for what happened yesterday. Believe me, I had no intention of hurting your feelings, when I snapped back at you during recess.

Actually I was feeling very upset, on being reprimanded by the class .teacher, for not completing my project work. While I was brooding over this, you had thumped my back, asking me to come to the school canteen. In my disturbed state of mind, I snapped back at you, feeling angry over your insensitivity. I later realised that your offer was well intentioned, so as to draw me out of my misery.

You had acted like a true friend, but I had misunderstood your intent. It has been years since we have known each other and I would not like this small incidence to come in the way of our friendship.

Please do forgive me for this lapse and join me for a small party in the canteen today. This would give me tremendous joy and strengthen our friendship.

Your friend,
S. Sharma

Dear Sir,

Subject : Your complaint on the quality of linen supplied

We are in receipt of your letter ref. TH/123 dated. 30 June 2013, drawing our attention to the quality of linen supplied to you last month. Our Quality Control department has examined the above consignment returned by you, specially taking note of your complaint, regarding the colour and coarseness of material.

We agree that the quality of linen supplied, is not in absolute conformity to the sample enclosed with the order. There has obviously been some mistake, in dispatching the same. However, the colour of the linen is the same as we have been supplying to you over the years. The stain on some pieces could have been on account of the consignment getting wet, while in transit.

We thank you for drawing our attention to this lapse, which we sincerely regret. I have personally taken up the matter with the concerned staff, and have instructed them to send fresh stocks, conforming to your specifications. In order to avoid damage in transit, we shall be packing the consignment in plastic sheets, rather than gunny bags. The consignment shall be sent tomorrow, and would reach you in about a week’s time.

I apologise once again for the above lapse, and the inconvenience it may have caused you, I would like to assure you, that we shall take remedial measures to ensure that it does not happen in future. We greatly value your patronage, and would look forward to a long and fruitful association.

Dear Sir,

Subject : Theft in Nehru Apartment

I would like to draw your kind attention to a theft that took place in my neighbouring flat number 123 Nehru Apartments, on the intervening night of 10th /11th October. The owner of the flat Mr R.N. Gupta, a close friend of mine had gone to Delhi to attend a wedding with his family, the previous night. In the morning when I came out of my flat for my usual morning walk, I found the main door of his flat ajar with a broken lock flung on the floor. Fearing the worst, I informed the local police station of the incident, and also my friend at Delhi. The local police took an hour’s time to come to the scene. By that time a sizeable crowd had gathered in front of the flat.

Despite my insistence, the inspector Mr. S.K. Sharma, was unable to summon the dog squad, that could have given some vital clues for catching the culprit. However nothing much was done, except for waiting for the family to return and record their statements. Mr. Gupta informed that the valuables amounting to rupees two lakhs have been stolen. The pace at which the investigation is in progress, there is no hope of catching the thief.

It is indeed very surprising to note, that despite the tremendous advances made in criminology, our police is still adopting ancient methods of investigation. There is also no preventive measure to tackle this menace that has become a frequent occurrence. I would therefore request you to kindly have this theft investigated. Appropriate measures must also be taken to ensure the safety of the inhabitants of these apartments.

Yours truly,

Dear Sir,

Subject : No progress made against my FIR Number GN 104

I would like to draw your kind attention to the extremely tardy progress made by the Nehru Nagar police station, regarding my FIR Number GN 104, dated 11 October 1991. This FIR was regarding a theft which took place in my house on the intervening night of 10th/11th October 1991.1 had gone to Delhi to attend a wedding with my family, the previous night. The next day I received a phone call from my friend Mr S. P. Saigal, informing me about the theft. I returned to learn that the local police took an hour’s time to come to the scene. During this time a sizeable crowd had gathered in front of my house.

Despite the insistence of my friend, the inspector Mr S.K. Sharma was unable to summon the dog squad, which could have given some vital clues, for catching the culprit. However nothing much was done, except for waiting for me to return and record my statement. The thieves decamped with cash amounting to ₹ 10,000, besides valuables amounting to two lakh rupees. It is now over a week but nothing substantial has been done, like questioning the people whom I suspect, or taking the fingerprints. The pace of investigation is so slow, that there no hope of catching the thieves.

It is indeed very surprising to note, that despite the tremendous advances made in criminology, our police is still adopting primitive methods of investigation. There is no preventive measure to tackle the menace, which has become a frequent occurrence in our colony. There is no police patrolling and rounding up suspicious character, who hang around the dhabas which abound in the residential colony.

I would request you to kindly instruct the concerned officer to expedite the investigation; so that the culprit is brought to book, for which I shall be obliged.
Thanking you!

Dear Sir,

Subject : Poor facilities in Your hotel

I had come on a business trip to Mumbai and had checked in your hotel on 3rd April 1989 in room no. 106. I found the overall service of the hotel quite poor, which belied your claim of offering three star facilities. I had brought this to your notice on a number of occasions, during my one-week long stay in your hotel, but there was hardly any improvement.

The room given to me was humid with poor ventilation. The sheets were dirty and quite shabby. When I requested room service to change them, they were brusque in telling me that the sheets had been changed in the morning. I had to remind them daily to change the sheets, which poorly reflects the quality of housekeeping. The room service was atrocious and required several reminders before what was ordered finally arrived.

The quality of food was not in keeping with the star status, though it was priced accordingly. On a few occasions I had to return the food, for it did not seem fit to eat. The staff at the reception counter were insensitive to the needs of a guest. I had to remind the operator a number of times, before I could get my number. Keeping in view the quality of service offered, the tariff of ₹ 2,500 per day, for a single room was indeed very unreasonable.

I would request you to kindly investigate the above shortcomings, so that guests are not put through the ordeal which I had to face. There is an immediate need to improve the housekeeping, catering and room service in the hotel. Besides this the staff needs to be trained on behaviour and etiquette. These measures will improve the goodwill of your hotel and justify your claim of a three star hotel, offering five star amenities.

Yours truly,
S. Sharma
