Subject: Neglect of Public Parks
I am writing to your good self to express my deep concern and anguish over the problem of neglect of public parks meant for children’s play and recreation. Ever-increasing pollution, contracting open space due to urbanization and industrialization, increasing traffic on roads, etc. all have contributed to the deterioration of the environment and human health. And the absence of open spaces in the modern colonies, townships, and residential areas has further aggravated the problem.
The worst lots that have been affected are the young children, and the old people, besides all age group people. How unfortunate are the growing children! They don’t have any space left to play and have fun. The few parks there are have been very badly maintained. They have either been encroached or in such a bad shape, that children fear going there. The Government must maintain these parks properly. I would also appeal to the people to adopt the parks in their colonies. Some colonies have really done an excellent job of maintaining the parks. These parks not only enhance the beauty of the surroundings but also are attractive places to have fun and play. I appeal to the concerned authorities to look into the problem and do the needful. Kindly publish my letter in your esteemed daily.
