Subject: Poor accommodation facilities for outstation students
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to bring to the notice of the concerned authorities, the poor state of accommodation service being provided to the students coming from different parts of the country. India is known for its diversity and Delhi, being a student city, houses a largely diversified population. However, these outstation students are not receiving the equal treatment that they deserve.
As many of these students must stay in rented accommodation, providing it at affordable rates is essential. But the irrational behaviour of the landlords while charging rents is causing a major problem among the students. The landlords, sometimes, go as far as to refusing to rent rooms because of the cultural differences. It is therefore requested of the concerned authorities to step in and take charge of this situation.
More than one lakh people die in our country due to road accidents every year. Most of these happen due to violation of traffic rules.
Traffic rules which have been made for own safety while travelling are rarely being followed by daily and occasional commuters. Jumping signals, over speeding, cutting lanes, etc., are extremely risky and puts many lives at stake. Absence of proper fining and tracking system encourages such negligent driving. Careless drivers not only cause suffering to themselves but also to others.
There is an urgent need for establishing a well-equipped fining and penalty tracking system across the country. Habitual offenders must be punished with imprisonment along with fine. A fear of punishment is sure to inculcate a habit of disciplined driving. This has been proved to be successful in other countries and it is time that India too, adopts it.
