Subject : Need for a play area for children in Shakti Nagar
I would like to draw the attention of the authorities, through the columns of your prestigious daily, for the need of a playing area for the children of Shakti Nagar colony, Lucknow.
The colony in ward No. IV has about two thousand residents, but unfortunately there is no playground for children. The nearest playfield is in Sharda Nagar, which is five kilometers away. The children are therefore forced to play on the streets. This besides obstructing the traffic also endangers their life.
A playing area in the colony would make the children happy and healthy. It would also help nurture and develop future sporting talent that the country desperately needs. A clean open space would be a boon for the residents, especially senior citizens for strolling in the morning and evening. It would keep them physically fit and healthy.
There is ample space in the colony for such a playfield. The authorities need to only clean up the garbage dumping yard, just opposite the petrol pump. This is a sore spot in the area. It would not only clean up the locality, but also meet a long standing demand of the residents of the area.
I therefore appeal through your daily to the concerned authorities to kindly take note of this serious problem, that besides endangering the lives of children, also poses a health hazard for the residents of the colony
