Letter to A Newspaper :
Write a letter to a Newspaper appealing for help for the victims of an earthquake.

I have recently visited the affected areas in Osmanabad District of Mahashtra state which were affected by a massive earthquake. I request you to kindly allow me a little space in your esteemed newspaper to appeal to the public for help the victims.
The general public are already familiar with the terrible tragedy of severe earthquake that has overtaken the province. Already more than 25,000 people have died. The sad plight of those who are surviving is very difficult to describe. Several thousands of people in the quake affected villages have been rendered destitutes and homeless.
Temporary sheltes have been provided to the victims. The police, army and various voluntary organisations are doing their best. However larger funds are needed to provided suitable rehabilitation.
I therefore appeal to the public to rise to the occasion and help the quake victims by contributing to the relief funds setup by the Govt. of Tamil Nadu or Maharashtra government.
