6. One of your friends has become disabled after an accident. He is very much depressed. Write a letter telling him about the power of determination.
50, Raj Mahal Colony Indore (M.P)
10 October, 20….
Hope that you are in a better condition now. I am arso fine here.
I can understand the state which you are going through. But you should not get depressed as nobody has a control on accidents but one has the control on his will power and determination.
Strong determination can do anything. No difficulty can withstand in front of it. Dr. Glenn Cunningham who was the world’s fastest mile runner also met with a fire accident in his childhood. The doctor said that he won’t be able to survive. But he survived due to his detetmination though the lower part of his body was damaged and it was said that he would lead a disabled life. Again his strong determination failed all troubles and he could walk and run.
Therefore you should not be depressed and face the challenges of life boldly. I am sure you will also lead a normal life as before if you become determined for it.
Wishing you success.

The district Magistrate,
Subject: Ban on the use of loud-speakers
I want to draw your attention to the nuisance caused by the use of loud-speakers. I am a student of high school and my examinations are near. It is a time when all the students are busy day and night preparing for the examinations. Their success depends upon the proper use of their time and the concentration of their minds. It is regrettable that majority of the citizens do not realise the importance of this time for ! students. They enjoy full liberty to use loud-speakers at their highest pitch to celebrate every occasion that comes to their hands. The result is that we are unable to make preparations in the right way. I therefore request you to kindly impose a ban on the use of loud-speakers for the period of Board Examinations and punish those who are found guilty.
