10 June 2001
My dear X,
I received your letter yesterday. From your letter, I came to know about your new experience in bird hunting. You know birds are our natural wealth. They are helpful and useful to us in many ways. They have increased the beauty of nature. We sleep at night and rise early in the morning hearing the sweet songs of different birds. But birds are now under the threat of extinction. So, hunting of birds will accelerate this process. Being a conscious person, you should not be a part of destroying the most beautiful creation of God. Besides hunting, widespread use of chemical and pesticides cause sterility and mass death. We know that like all other species, birds are important for maintaining ecological balance. So. for the sake of mankind, we should be kind to the birds and ensure them a safe habitat. I believe you will bring all these things into consideration and will not hunt any more birds.
We are well. Convey my best regards to your parents and best wishes to your youngers.
