CBSE Class 12 English Letter Writing – Letters Of Application for Jobs
Applications for jobs are written in a very formal, precise and to the point manner. In case the applicant has to focus on his qualifications and experience, a bio-data is enclosed. It includes important information regarding the candidate such as Name, Date of Birth, Contact Address, Educational Qualifications, Professional attainments, Experience Letter, Hobbies, Marital Status, Salary Expected and the References. The forwarding letter has the same format as. an official letter. In case, the information about the applicant is not detailed one, it is included in the body of the letter itself.
The bio-data or curriculum vitae (C.V.) is written in a standardised format. The forwarding letter reflects the personality of the writer. It must be brief and polite. While stressing personal qualities such as habits, manners, health, physique etc., it should avoid the two extremes of bragging and ingratiating.

TRANSPLANT OF HUMAN ORGANS
You read in the newspaper about a woman who waited for six months for a kidney transplant but died on the day when she got a donor. You are very upset. Write a letter to your friend Shyam, Manipal University Hostel, Manipal expressing what is happening in the present day world viz., corruption, legislation on transplant of human organs.
24, Anna Road

I would life to share my thoughts and feelings over a topic that has given a rude jolt to my conscience. I was shocked beyond belief when I read the news of a woman’s death on the day she got a kidney donor at Manipal. She had been waiting for the last six months for a kidney transplant.
The state has put a ban on the blanket donation of kidney. There are strict rules for the donors.
Even very close relatives can donate one of their kidneys and that too after rigorous examination by a team of experts. Thus, the state has good intentions in banning commercialisation of human organs by those who are poor and needy. The real implementation is shoddy and horrible.
The poor woman died because the hospital authorities took more than a month to allow the donor to donate his kidney. The rules are framed to save people and not to let them go into the jaws of death.
I do hope you will raise this issue at appropriate forum and initiate a public debate to remove hurdles in the speedy donation of kidneys by close relatives.
Please acquaint me with your reaction.
