Give a reply to the above letter expressing your inability to attend the marriage ceremony of Deepak due to some unavoidable circumstances.
49 A, Ashok Vihar,
My dear friend Neetin,
Received your affectionate letter containing the good news of Deepak’s marriage. We all are very much happy to know that your father wants the marriage to be simple, ideal, and dowry less. Dowry is a curse in our society. Your father is really putting an example before others. Please convey our congratulations to Deepak and thanks to your father for extending an invitation to attend the happy occasion. We would have certainly enjoyed and felt delighted to attend Deepak’s marriage ceremony. I hope you and your father will excuse us as my uncle’s condition is very serious. You will agree with me that it is not proper to leave him alone under these circumstances.
Please convey our love to Deepak and regards to your parents.
