Today rampant use of microphones has become a great nuisance. This new demon is looming large in public life. Be it a political gathering or a social ceremony, religious festival or a cultural function, microphones are being used in high volume, tormenting people of all ages. Students, specially examinees , find it really difficult to concentrate on studies. Patients and the old cannot sleep. In absence of any protest or implementation of law, the incessant shower of high pitched songs and music goes on harrassing us everyday. 
How long should we allow this to go on? If we cannot raise our voice against this Evil, it will contribute to cultural and moral degeneration of the youth, torture us terribly and make us Deaf and mentally dis balanced. 
There is none to Bell the cat. Would you kindly highlight the issue in your editorial? 
Thanking you,
