Dear Ashok,


The news regarding the death of your mother has come to me like a bolt from the blue. I am highly taken aback on reading the letter about the untimely death of your dear mother because she was hale and hearty the other day when I came to see you on your birthday…

To tell you the truth, mother is a great blessing in this world of eye and ear. Hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

It is only due to her efforts that you have raised to such a high position. The lamp that illumi­nated in your heart is extinguishing now. In fact, God has plucked one of the sweetest smelling flowers from the garden of your family.

I pray to God to give peace to the departed soul and give you power to bear this irreparable loss.


With deep sympathies.

Yours sincerely,
