Conclusion to be positive, straightforward with pleasant tone and use of polite language.

Sub : Problem of Increasing Stress Faced by Students


Dear Sir,


Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to shed light on the escalating issue of heightened stress among students, largely stemming from the intensely competitive academic environment.


In today's fast-paced world, the landscape is rife with cutthroat competition. Children find themselves constantly under scrutiny, assessed on various fronts. The expectations placed on them by their parents are substantial, with the desire for excellence in academics, sports, and extracurricular pursuits. The prevailing notion often revolves around steering children towards becoming doctors or engineers, inadvertently subjecting them to undue stress and overwhelming burdens. Consequently, their entire day becomes a relentless cycle of completing assignments and studies, leaving scant time for recreation and physical activities.


It is imperative that we reflect on this pressing issue and contemplate viable solutions. Encouraging students to actively participate in sports, games, and yoga can serve as a potent antidote to the stress epidemic. Additionally, parents must reevaluate their expectations and resist the urge to excessively pressure their children to achieve academic perfection. Introducing meditation practices can prove instrumental in helping students manage and alleviate stress effectively.


In essence, it is crucial to recognize the detrimental impact of excessive academic pressure on students and actively promote a more holistic approach to education—one that prioritizes their mental and physical well-being alongside academic achievements.


Yours sincerely,

Rekha / Rakesh
