Itís hard to locate the life-saver
My father was an asthma patient and often had to be administered oxygen. During severe attacks, he needed four to five cylinders a day. Procuring cylinders is a nightmarish task, as the supply is very erratic. Though the deposit money ranges from Rs 800 to Rs 5,000 at the chemistsí shops, the cylinders are usually half-filled, with defective valves and meters. A vital life-saving device like an oxygen cylinder should be standardised and made easily available. Jaya Ganguly, Jodhpur Park.
Several ponds in the city are full of filthy water and weeds. These can be cleaned and seating provisions can be made along the banks. Bhupen Bose, Dum Dum.
