Subject: Disturbances caused because of loudspeakers.
I Debarpita Bhattacharjee, on behalf of all my fellow mates want you to support us through your writing about the disturbances caused by the thoughtless use of loudspeakers. It’s really tough to concentrate during class hours. During exams, after working so hard we cannot concentrate during exams due to those unnecessary use of speakers. In front of our school, there is also a hospital,it is very hard for the patients to tolerate those noise.
Thousands of students like us are suffering the same problem every day and also the patients in the hospital. It’s my humble request to take a stand for us and do write something on this to warn the use of loudspeakers.
