Write a letter to your friend encouraging him to continue his education.
My dear Saktipada,
Your father was at our place last evening and he informed me that you are going to settle down in life after passing the Madhyamik Pariksha and propose to join your father’s business. I also learnt from him that you do not want to study further. Your father said that it was your own choice and that he would be happy either way.
Well, dear Saktipada, I have known you for years and I consider you a very responsible and sensible person. Your outlook had been wider than any of us and yet you have decided to remain behind your friends who will complete their university education in another four years. There is certainly nothing wrong with deciding to join your father’s business but may I suggest that you could do this even after completing your university education?
The mercantile community is becoming more and more enlightened and cultured. Most educated people are joining business day by day. Naturally, in competition, the executive with higher education always has a preference over others in respect of manners, culture, way of speaking, etc. Fortunately, you have full opportunities to study further.
Will you take my friendly suggestion and consider your decision once again in the light of what I have said above? If you give it serious thought, I am sure you will decide in favour of studies at this stage.
I am awaiting your reply.
Name + Address
of your friend.
