Band 7.5 IELTS Letter Sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Gayathri and I am a student of Sivaji University, Pune. I recently read an article in your newspaper about the history of Maharashtra state. I am writing this letter to express my concern regarding a few points in the article which seem incorrect to me.

I was born and brought up in Pune city and I grew up by listening to the history of that place from my grandparents.  In the article, you mentioned that the name of the mother of Sivaji was Puthali, which is incorrect. Moreover, the duration of his reign is given incorrectly. He lived in the 17th century and his mother’s name was Jijia Bhai.

I would really appreciate it, if you could reverify the aforementioned details and republish the article. I think it would be the best practice to do a thorough check before publishing these kinds of articles.

Expecting prompt action

Yours faithfully,

Gayathri T.K
