Letters to Newspapers

  These should always be addressed to " The  Editor," and they usually end with Yours faithfully.

  The form of salutation  is Sir/Dear Sir.

  If the writer doesnot wish his name to be published, he can sign his letter with a non -de- plume (such as   " Interested", "Anxious", "One who knows", etc); but in any case he must give his name and address (in a conveying letter) to the Editor, for no respectable newspaper will publish anonymous letters."


The Editor,

The Himalayan Times,

Anamnagar, Kathmandu.


Our Municipality wants waking up; and,as private appeals to their office have had no effect, perhaps a little publicity will do no harm. For the last month Maitidevi Road has been almost impassable. The surface is badly broken up by the heavy rains, and on a dark night it is positively dangerous for motors or carriages to pass that way. moreover, there is heaps of road metal on both sides of the road, which leave very little space in the middle. It is scandalous that we should be inconvenienced in this way for weeks, and I hope the public will bring pressure to bear on those responsible so that the road may be put in through repair without  further delay.

Yours faithfully,

Anirudra Karna
