My dear Nikhil,
Many thanks for your letter. I was very pleased to learn that your school shall remain closed for a week on account of Dussehra. It will be very kind of you if you come over here during these holidays. We shall all have a nice time. We shall have plenty of fun, laughter and sightseeing.
As you know that Dusshera here is celebrated with gusto. The effigies of Ravana and Meghnad are made with great labour. They are quite big in size and every care is taken to keep intact their ancient character.
The fireworks fixed in the effigies are very powerful and their deafening noise is an experience unheard of anywhere else.
Besides enjoying the Dussehra celebrations, we will go together sightseeing. The caves and the small mountain hills are a big attraction for tourists. Why should not you take advantage of my presence here and visit these places?
It is just possible that your parents may not allow you to come here. I am therefore writing separately to them. I hope they will very kindly allow us to meet here for a week.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Your loving friend.
