Dear Nitu,

Thank you for your letter. I am fine and hope you are also well. Today I am going to inform you about the transport system of my village Rangajan. My village is on a roadside area and it is about 3 kilometres from the small Titabor town and 7 kilometres from the Jorhat town. The transport system in our area is not very satisfactory.

The growing area of Rangajan is the centre of the large number of villages around it. It has two high schools, one Higher Secondary School, one primary health centre, one veterinary hospital, post office, clubs and other social institutions along with a small market. Here, buses are the only modes of transport. Two government buses ply in the morning and in the afternoon two to three private buses at different hours give service but are not regular. At school and office hours the condition of our people becomes very bad. To overcome this problem of our society we are writing to the concerned authority to provide us with more buses. I hope that our demand will soon be fulfilled. 

This is much for today. Please do write to me again. Best wishes to you and your family.

Your friend
