Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The author is a member of parliament. Sometimes an MP writes a letter to a specific recipient but the actual intended audience is far broader (i.e. an MP is making a public statement through the letter).
  • The second paragraph outlines the steps that Patil feels the zoo needs to take.
  • The letter is quite harsh in some parts (e.g. “pathetic” in the first paragraph) although the end of the letter is fairly conciliatory.
