Dear Pinal,

How are you? I trust this finds you and your family in radiant healthy. I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch recently. Thank you so much for the beautiful gift – Macboook Pro.

First of all, I must admit that you have, according to situation, a great sense of identifying best gift for person. I am always eager to receive a present from your side. The item which you sent for my birthday had made my day. I love brand new laptop and I was amazed to see latest configuration machine in my hand. It has pure white colour and an aluminium body. Moreover it has 2 GB RAM, 360 GB Hard disk, 14” display and an inbuilt webcam. Actually I am so much addicted to this computer that I am spending more than 6 hours a day in front of Macbook Pro. I can’t ask anything more than this as birthday gift.

It has been long time since we have met. I would like you to come over with your family to my home on next Sunday. I have already secured a blue-ray disc of Inception movie so that we can enjoy our time.

I am looking forward to spend time with your family.

With love.

Dear Pinal,


How are you? I trust this finds you in radiant health. I take this opportunity to apologize myself for not turning up in your marriage anniversary party which you held day before.


First of all, I can’t believe that I missed to attend your function as I know your celebrations are well known for its food and location. I still remember mouth-watering menu of your birthday party which I attended last year. However I am extremely sorry for not coming last night to join you to celebrate your marriage anniversary. I got a call from my father when I was on my way. He told me that there was a break-in at my home. Because of this, I need to return back to my home. As I was busy, I could not get a chance to inform you well in time.


Anyway, let me know what was there in food list and how many people were there. Moreover how was the dance party? For long time, I will curse myself for not being there but please send me event photos. I will request you to join with your family on this Sunday at my home so that we can all spend good time.

The bus service you use has been good in the past. However some changes have been made to the services. Write to public transport director. You should say: 1: What Changes have been made 2: How they affect you 3:Suggest what the bus compnay should do to fix the problem

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to bring to your attention about inconvenience caused by the recent timetable changes for bus which runs on route no. 40.

First of all, I have been a regular daily user of your bus service for the past few years. Until recently, I invariably found that the drivers, the timetables and buses themselves to be dependable and impressive.

However, since last few weeks, I have noticed that timetable has been revised and number of buses have been reduced on this path. Moreover vehicle’s conditions are filthy. As a result of this, I am more often than not late for work. It has also caused great discomfort for all commuters.

I would request you to pay special attention towards this request so that we can have more number of clean buses. I would also like to see modified and updated timetable.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Your sincerely.

Competitiveness is a positive quality for people in most societies. How does competitiveness affect individuals? Is it a positive or negative trend?

There is a school of thought which contends that having a strong desire to be more successful than others is an affirmative characteristic of a person. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that community needs and requires such qualities in people and I strongly believe that this is a positive moment.

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that a healthy competition provides incentives for each individual to improve themselves. People set the goals and try to achieve them by hard work and perseverance. These goals are based on other’s accomplishments. For an example, there is a race among Indian cricketers to break Sir Donald Breadman’s record. The desire to reach this milestone first then the others is not only helping every player but also whole Indian Cricket team as well.

Perhaps most importantly, it is abundantly clear that if there is no rivalry, people will become lazy and there would be stagnation in their lives.  This would result in dull individuals and lacklustre society. In my personal experience, my organization posted lowest result for financial year 2010. Before 2010 starts, management decided not to launch any new products and not to give any promotion. These announcements demotivated all employees and there were no zeal left among the workers as they have nothing to achieve for an entire year.

The situation relating to this trend in my country, Australia, is not different from the experiences of nations throughout the world.

When all is said and done, I pen down saying that healthy competitiveness is good and leads to the progress of individual and society. If the steps are not taken by concerned agencies and government bodies to promote this trend, it will become too difficult in future to be rectified at all.

In several years many languages die out. Some say it is not important because if we speak fewer languages life would be easier. Do you agree or disagree?

There is a school of thought which contends that it will be futile to spend efforts in saving dying languages as with the usage of limited lingo, day to day survival will be more convenient. I have to say that I agree wholeheartedly that this is the case.

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that if we have less number of speeches, it will be easy to maintain them. For an example, three years ago, it was too difficult for my local librarian to manage library due to presence of thousands of books written in Sanskrit and Udipi language. Hardly few people were able understand these languages and only portion of those books were being used. But as soon as management removed those literatures from shelf, life of librarian and members became easy. Now subscribers are able to find books of their interest much quickly and efficiently.

Perhaps most importantly, it is abundantly clear that by not preserving endangered languages, we can build a solid foundation for one global language for worldwide communication. This will help in removing numerous barriers which  we are facing today due to presence of large number of languages. Moreover kids and adults can pay extra attention and can grasp lessons rather quickly as ample resources will be available at their disposal in that global language.

In my personal experience, I used to speak one dying language, BlaBla. I faced difficulties while dealing with other person as only 500 people on this earth knows BLABLA. But as soon as I learnt English , I find myself in comfortable position while communicating with rest of the people.

When all is said and done, I pen down saying that idea of saving threatened languages sounds good but it is difficult to sustain because the speakers have a right to shift to another language. Once this happens, there is no logical basis for saving a past linguistic behaviour.

Nowadays, some workplaces tend to employ equal numbers of men and women workers. Do you think it is a positive or negative development?

Given current circumstances throughout the world, more and more employers prefer to hire same number of male and female as an employee. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that this is progressive evolution.

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that hiring equal number of both sexes will help in reducing gender based discrimination. This will also reduce sexual harassment at workplaces as it brings sense of safety among workers.  To illustrate this, my company had ratio of 20:80 for female and male worked. During that time, female workers were abused a lot by dominated male staff and they were fewer opportunities for them as well. However, this is not the case right now as organization has increased this ratio by 1:1.

Perhaps most importantly, it is abundantly clear that this practise will give an equal chance and opportunity to every human being regardless their gender. Moreover as there will more people available to carry out same work with more efficiency thus product prices will become more reasonable. Apart from this, it will also give employer chance to hire best resource for ongoing opening.

In my personal experience, I have noticed that Subway prices are reduced and they are tastier now since when local food store has hired more female workers.

The state of affairs relating to this phenomenon in my country, Australia, is not great deal different from the experiences of nations throughout the world.

When all is said and done, I pen down saying that the trend of hiring an equal number of male and female is definitely positive development because it will help to build much stronger society and community by providing more opportunities to the right candidate for right job.

Some people think that robots are very important to human‘s future development, while others think they are dangerous and have negative effects on society. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

There is a school of thought which contends that artificially created intelligent electro-mechanical devices have a great role to play in coming years. There is a counter argument which contends that these smart machines are very risky for human and will have hazardous impacts on whole community. From my personal point of view, I’m inclined towards the former view.

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that robots speed up the production processes and they are extremely good in repetitive tasks. For an example, while manufacturing a car, all auto-mobile companies use robots to perform critical tasks like spraying color, joining parts and fitting screws. Secondly, they can work for 24 hours for a day and 7 days a week. Moreover, in the field of medicine, they are used to carry out complex surgeries. Apart from these, they can also work in extreme conditions where human are helpless.

At the other end of the spectrum, there is no denying that there is a substantial downside of using machines and encouraging their usage into various fields.  To illustrate, with the high practice of robots, there is great threat for employees as robots will replace them in offices and factories.

In my personal experience, to boost output, my company has brought and put five robots on production work. The results were outstanding and share prices of organization have doubled since then. Management has already decided to increase this number to eight now.

The state of affairs relating to this issue in my country, Australia, is not a great deal different from the experiences of nations throughout the world.

When all is said and done, I pen down saying that robots will join in our lives in various way and play a role of growing importance. We have created the robots and we should know where to the lines in their use so that we can get the best of them minus their disadvantages.
