The recent increase in crimes against people of the North-East, especially in the cities, has highlighted the growing problem faced by the community. Fear of violence continues to worry them. Write a letter in 100-120 words to the Editor of Times of India expressing your concern over the recent death of a young student resulting from a racial comment against people from North-East. Suggest what steps the government should take to solve this problem. You are Aanchal/Aryan, resident of A-12, East of Kailash, N. Delhi.

Subject: Racial Discrimination
‘Incredible India’, as it is popular all over the world is well-known for its culture and heritage. But the current situation, especially the recent increase in crimes against people of the North-East, in the advanced cities has proved that humanity and moral values—the qualities which Indians are proud of, seem to have become an outdated concept.
Today the condition is that one would prefer only familiar people. People who migrate from other communities face the problem of violence. It is a matter of great concern that a young student had to lose his life due to a racial comment against people from the North-East. Such an attitude not only causes disharmony among fellow human beings but also dents the image of our country all over the world. The need of the hour is that we should understand that this is a myopic viewpoint. It is important to pause and think that human relationships should not be sacrificed at the alter of racial discrimination. Humans without humanity are not humans at all. I hope this letter of mine will be published in your esteemed newspaper for the sake of a noble cause.
