Letter to President of India – Problems of Mother INDIA
Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 4, 2008
I wish you to read this letter of mine in which I’ve expressed my thoughts and dreams about our great country.
First of all let me introduce myself. I’m Surabhi of 10th standard studying in Rotary West School in Mysore.
I wish to get a chance to talk to you, but don’t know if my dream can be made to. So I thought I will at least correspond with you because I know what ever busy schedule you have you always make yourself free to spend some time for children.
I’ve strongly made up my mind to do something for our country though not as much as you expect at least a little to make my memories in this earth a happy one.
I’ve started gathering information about Pollution, Population and Poverty. I wish to share with you a bit of information I’ve collected and my idea about it hoping that you can suggest how well I could go about planning it. Well I personally feel that it’s not only soldiers who have to contribute: but also duty of every citizen. Though may not be a big sacrifice like our soldiers but a little that each can do according to our capacity. Sir as you know today we are facing many problems, such as Poverty, Pollution and Population.
I really believe that population is never going to cause much trouble if the manpower is utilized in the right and proper way. We can definitely work, if all take the trouble of educating and guiding others. How can we underestimate ourselves by comparing to the other countries? And of course Poverty will never be found if we take care of Population. They go as the two faces of the same coin. Now only thing, which we need to look into, is Pollution. How can we contribute to prevent it or even stop it? Here are some examples of different countries and their care towards nature.
Today many programs to warn people have been carried out in Europe, America Australia and Japan. They also celebrate the world pollution day like us; but in a different way. The earth protecting soldiers of ‘green peace’ climbs the chimneys of the big industries, which eliminate more smoke, and they will write, “Pure air is our right”. They will put enamel paint on the seals to see that no hunter is going to hunt them for their skin. They also tie the mouth of the pipes inside the rivers, which will be lead out by the industries.
Not only this: in 1995 there was a special program to find the small beautiful insects called Ladybird in Britain. A number of students, children and also many people searched all over and at last, they did find many species of Ladybird. Another such group work was regarding the frogs. Many frogs while crossing the roads in rainy season die under vehicles passing through on roads. To avoid this the young students help them in crossing the roads. The most amazing thing is; they adopt the highway, which pass through their place and look after them with care. They never wait for the government to come and repair the road because they really can’t be patient till a decision could be taken by the Government and getting through loss their life because in their action only the minds of students are involved.
In some parts of America they adopt rivers. There will be river wardens to look after those rivers. The government will give a badge to them so that they will be provided employment and also a good recognition. They will be paid for their work. By all these people get employment and there will be no pollution and cleanliness will be maintained.
Though all these can’t be taken overnight but it has become a part of their daily routine, which we are very much aware. We do have many solutions for all these problems. I feel strongly that if we see something good in others it’s better we adopt them. Anyway we have more natural facilities and we could do definitely more than anyone. We can conduct Re-Cycling competition in which new materials have been taken out from waste. In each and every colony the children of that particular colony can make a group and look after their colonies. Strictly banning plastic bags can also help to reduce pollution. Conducting talks on pollution may bring some awareness among the students. I’m just talking about the children because they are tomorrow’s citizens.
Now it’s the time to question ourselves as to where we are lagging behind ? I think children are the one who can make this country a developed one. But today names of heroes and heroines will be in the tip of the tongues but not that of freedom fighters. Today seeing bad films has spoiled the children. We are going abroad and learning their culture instead of spreading ours. All these because of lack of patriotic feeling in one’s heart.
Ma’am I don’t know whether I’m right or wrong. But I felt that you are the only person with whom I can share my thoughts because I know that you patiently listen to children. If I have made any mistake please pardon me.
With Love and Regards
