Subject: The advantages and disadvantages of ban on crackers

Respected Sir/Mam

Greetings of the day!

I would like to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of the ban of crackers through your esteemed newspaper. At one end, it is beneficial to some for some reasons but at the same time burning crackers create noise pollution, air pollution, and spread diseases.

People who sell crackers earn their livelihood by selling and if the government puts a ban on this will affect their livelihood. They will lose their job and thus won’t be able to feed their families. Especially at the time of marriage seasons, or other festivals, the sale of crackers reach its heights and thus the demand for the same goes up and the people selling it earn bonuses and thus save the money for the betterment of the future.

On the other hand, kids may get injured by burning crackers; they may also get various respiratory diseases. People working in factories are unable to lead a normal life as they are exposed to crackers daily which may harm them directly or indirectly. Thus, it is advisable to make safe use of the same and produce green crackers.

I hope you understand my concern and will publish this article so that it may spread awareness.

Thanking you

Yours truly



‘Increasing Population in the Cities’

The population of the city is increasing exponentially. It is growing at an alarming rate. The facilities in the cities are far better than what is being provided in rural areas. This is one of the reasons why people migrate from rural place to cities. People are unemployed in a rural place and thus in the hope of getting a better job, they move to cities.

Education facilities are better in cities and thus provide a better future. The way of living in the city is more developed and advanced in the city than in rural areas. But at the same time, this all positivity had created a negative impact in the city.

The city is getting crowded day by day which thereby increases the number of vehicle running which leads to noise and air pollution. Thus, the number of slums in the city gets affected and thus affecting water and power supply and also increases the traffic jam of the city.

Thus, this is of major concern and need immediate action to safeguard the life of many.
