Dear Reetika,

How are you doing? I know that your grand mom passed away and that you were very close to her. But do not be sad as she will forever keep a watch on you.

Being your best friend I should have been there for you but as you know I’m leaving country for higher studies so I cannot be there with you. Please do not be angry on me, I’ll call you as soon as I can, but till then take care.

Yours Friend,

I am writing this letter to tell you that there is no friendship left in between us and you have given an absolutely absurd reason to break our friendship, but as I was your best friend sometime back I would forever wish the best for you.

I’ll cherish the crazy memories we shared, how we supported each other in a crisis, everything is etched in my mind clearly. I just wanted to tell you that I know you are hurt because of me but it was inten6tional from my end. You always be my best buddy and ever if you need me just know that I’m only at a hands distance.

Be in a good health and good bye and lots of luck to you.

Sarita Rane,

247, East Street,

New Delhi,


I am really sorry for not informing all of you that I have left for my native place. My dad passed away with a major heart attack every thing at home is ramshackle. As you all know my mom is uneducated so she did not know about the last formalities and could not handle all the things at home.

I need to be home for at least two to three months as I need to get the name transferred of our farm yard and also manage the entire farm staff and assign their work. I need to support them morally and financially also. My mom is still in a shocking state of mind and my grand mom can’t manage the entire conditions. I will call you guys at regular intervals and be in touch. I have taken a break for this assessment year and will join after six months. You all don’t worry and stay calm.

With love,


Yours truly,
