           This is to bring to your knowledge and favourable response thereon, that an essay competition is proposed to be conducted by the Quilon Social Service Society. This competition is to make the young generation aware of the dangers that life faces in this world currently. As everybody knows, life and its survival are solely dependent on nature. Nature is now under threat of annihilation. Manís irresponsible interference with natural order is a cause of this threat and a matter of great concern. The way in which man has destroyed the balance of Nature has led to the pollution of the atmosphere, air and water. If such destructive and devilish activities are allowed to go on, life will disappear from the face of the earth. It is this danger that the young generation must think about and act upon. It is to spread this message of caution that the suggested essay competition is conducted. School Principals are requested to persuade their students of standard VIII and onwards to participate in this competition which will enable them to become noble and useful citizens of our country and the world.
