Lack of job opportunities in the rural areas is forcing people to migrate to cities. Every big city thus has a number of slums in it. Life in these slums is miserable. Write a letter in 120-150 words to the editor of a national newspaper on how we can improve the living conditions in these slums. You are Karan/Karuna, M-114, Mall Road, Delhi.

Subject: Miserable Condition of the Slums
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the authorities regarding slums and their miserable conditions.
Most of the slums in cities are dumped with the people migrated from villages. The survival of these people has become very difficult with pathetic living conditions. This is mainly because of the lack of education and hygiene. Their illegal occupancy has become a burden on resource.
The main reasons for their migration to cities from rural areas are lack of job opportunities and poverty. Government should discourage migration by creating opportunities in rural areas. Even NGO’s can adopt slums in order to make the life of these people better.
