A letter of congratulations to a friend on his (her) winning a scholarship
My Dear Kamal,
“The Times of India” today brings a very happy and welcome news to me. I am glad to learn that you have won a scholarship in the higher secondary examination. Accept my heartiest congratulations on your brilliant success. It is an achievement of which you ought to be proud. Mother joins with me in singing your praises. Thank God, your hard work has been crowned with bright success.
You have come up to our expectations and have brought credit to your school and family. I can well imagine how happy your parents must be today. Please, inform me which college you intend to join. Join a first grade college and start working hard with the same interest. Praying to God for greater honours for you.
Now may I tell you, dear chum, to get ready with a grand party. I may drop in any time at your place.
