Along with air and water pollution, our cities are also under an attack of noise pollution. Marriage processions, DJs during wedding receptions, loud music from neighbourhood flats, etc. are all source of noise which is not good for the old, the ailing and students. Write a letter in 120-150 words to the editor of a local newspaper describing the problem and making a request to the concerned authorities to solve it.

Subject: Problems Due to Noise Pollution
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities regarding the problems caused by noise pollution.
Ours is the quietest area in the city. However, for the past one year, noise pollution has snatched away peace and tranquillity from our lives.
Loud speakers at marriage processions, DJs during wedding receptions, loud music from neighbourhood flats and the holy songs blasting at full volume during nights have become the biggest enemy of the restful sleep. The elderly, patients, students, etc. are the biggest sufferers of the noise.
Excessive noise affects both health and behaviour, causing hypertension, stress, loss of hearing, disturbed sleep, etc. It also causes distraction for students, especially those preparing for exams.
I hope the concerned authorities will take prompt steps in this direction to ease the situation.
