Nandini Voice For The Deprived, a Chennai -based NGO is organising an essay competition for college students in Tamil Nadu on ‘Should Tamil Nadu government close all tasmac liquor shops?’
According to the NGO, ever since the Tamil Nadu government has taken over the sale of liquor through TASMAC shops, the number of liquor addicts in the State is on the increase as reported by sources. It is alarming to know that liquor consumption is increasing even among school and college students, affecting their health and their academic life.
Many people think that such a habit is the cause behind social evils like harassment of women and bothering poor families, which disrupts their peace and harmony. It is also the cause behind many health and law and order problems. The demand for closure of all tasmac shops is becoming louder, said volunteers from the NGO.
The objective of the essay competition is to provide an opportunity to the college students in Tamil Nadu to introspect on the subject and provide their views.
All under graduate and post graduate students in Tamil Nadu are eligible to participate in the essay competition. Best five essays will be awarded prizes. Last date for submission of essay is November 25.
The essay should be a maximum of 1500 words and can be written in English or Tamil. It has to be sent by post or email to the following address Nandini Voice for The Deprived, M 60/1, 4th cross Street, Besant Nagar, Chennai-600090. Email:- email@example.com
