My dear Rohit
I have just received your letter. I understand that you are deeply worried on account of your failure in the examination. This has perhaps made you feel that your life has lost all its charms. But you should not be overwhelmed with sorrow. You should remember that every fall has a rise. Only those who retreat advance forward to the path of progress. This time’s failure will help you overcome your weaknesses in all subjects.
But this can be possible only when the clouds of your despondency and frustration get dispersed and you brush aside your bitter dispiritedness. You shall have to devote yourself to your studies wholeheartedly. You should not forget that industry never goes to waste. It will put you in good stead and you will achieve first division. You might have read somewhere that failure is a key to success. This time this adage applies to you fully. I am sure you will be able to go across the sea of the forthcoming examination with flying colours. Our blessings are with you. Your brothers and sisters are anxious to meet you. You had better come to stay with us at least for a few days. The change of place will invigorate you. Don’t worry unnecessarily. Rest on meeting you. May God bless you with a long life!
