Write a letter to the editor of an English daily about the problem of drug addiction.

The Editor,
The Telegraph,


     I shall be highly obliged if you kindly allow me a little space in the columns of your highly esteemed daily so that I may ventilate my opinion to draw the attention of the due authority about the problem of drug addiction.

     Drug addiction is one of the major problems of today’s world. It is a tragedy of the time that thousands of young men and women, in the prime of life, fall victims to this harmful habit of taking drugs, marring their prospects of bright careers and lives. Most of the people start taking drugs like marijuana, brown sugar etc out of curiosity, often under the influence of their friends. Others take drug to overcome boredom, fatigue, depression or frustration due to lack of affection or love from near and dear ones. Their easy availability, no doubt, results in large scale drug abuse. This problem now has reached a state of emergency in the country. It not only cleans up pockets, but also harms their health and nervous system. As a result, they often commit crimes even murder. Besides, due to it, different antisocial activities like snatching, rape, eve-teasing etc are increasing. Common people can not move freely during night and girls and women can not go out for personal reason. So many brilliant students are getting nipped in but due to the drug addiction.

     I think that the problem needs to be tackled by the government systematically in order to wean the youngsters away from the destructive habit and encourage healthy diversions. Also, the guardians should be more careful and lovable to their child otherwise the total young generation of the nation will be destroyed.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
Riya Barman
