I am writing to draw attention to the pressing issue of cleanliness in Karachi and to emphasize the immediate need for a comprehensive cleanliness drive in our beloved city. The state of cleanliness in Karachi is deteriorating rapidly, and it is adversely affecting the quality of life for its residents.
Despite being the largest and most populous city in Pakistan, Karachi is grappling with a growing problem of unmanaged waste, littered streets, and unsightly public spaces. The absence of a concerted effort to address this issue is taking a toll on our city's environment, public health, and overall well-being. The piling garbage, overflowing dumpsters, and littered streets not only present an eyesore but also pose a serious threat to public health. The unchecked accumulation of waste has the potential to lead to the outbreak of diseases and infections, creating an immediate health hazard for residents. In addition to health concerns, the lack of cleanliness negatively impacts the aesthetics of our city. Tourists and visitors are often dismayed by the sight of littered streets and open dumping of trash. This not only tarnishes the city's image but also affects tourism and economic opportunities for Karachi. The need for a cleanliness drive cannot be overstated. It is imperative that the local authorities, in collaboration with community organizations and concerned citizens, initiate a comprehensive cleanliness campaign. I believe that with the collective efforts of the government, community organizations, and residents, Karachi can be restored to its former glory as the "City of Lights." Let's work together to make our city a cleaner, healthier, and more inviting place to live and visit.

I am writing to address an issue of paramount importance in our society –the respect and dignity that should be accorded to our elderly citizens. Our older generation has contributed significantly to the well-being and development of our communities, and it is our moral and ethical duty to ensure they receive the respect and care they deserve. In recent times, there have been instances where the respect and honor due to the elderly seem to be dwindling. It is disheartening to witness situations where older individuals are subjected to neglect, mistreatment, or even ridicule. This is a matter that should concern us all, as it goes against the fundamental values of compassion, empathy, and respect that should define our society. Our elderly citizens possess a wealth of wisdom, experience, and life knowledge that is invaluable. They have weathered the storms of life and paved the way for future generations. Their sacrifices, hard work, and dedication to families and communities deserve our recognition and admiration. It is incumbent upon all members of our society, from individuals to institutions, to actively promote and practice respect for the elderly. Programs and initiatives that foster interaction between younger and older generations can bridge gaps and create understanding. This can lead to a more cohesive and respectful society.
Huma Khalid,
