13th February, 2013.
Dear Friend,
It feels so good to have lots of free time in your hand and nothing to do. I had a very hectic schedule till Friday but now I am relaxed. I have something wonderful to share with you. Mother and father have allowed me to keep a pet dog.
Yes, a few days back, my dad’s friend approached us if we were interested to buy a cute puppy which his friend wanted to sell. Father gave permission and guess what! The cute, two year old puppy is mine. It is grey in colour with floppy ears. I have named him ‘Tiger’ as he justifies it. His arrival has cheered all our family members. The best part is that he understands like a small child when we are talking about him. He loves people admiring him but does not like to be held by strangers. He gave us a tough time during Diwali as the deafening crackers scared him a lot. He preferred to remain under our sofa. I could go on and on with a sense of pride the way a parent would express affection for his child. My world revolves around him. Give my regards to your parents.
Your loving friend,
Xyz

13th February, 2013.
Dear Brother,
Thanks for your lovely birthday card. It was very well made. Yesterday, I visited a book exhibition and have picked up a book on “Human Values” for you. After all, character plays a very significant role in one’s life.
I was shocked to hear from mother that you were caught copying in your exams. It was shocking and very embarrassing to know this. What’s wrong with you? Weren’t you prepared for the paper? Even if you hadn’t studied, what was the need to cheat? Remember, it is important to be a good human being first. Scoring a few more marks by employing low means is not right. Frankly speaking, I was ashamed as I was the Head boy in class X and the thought that the Principal and the teachers would discuss about my brother cheating in class was a very disturbing thought. Mother told me that she has to meet the Principal along with Father. What an embarrassing moment for them! Our deeds reflect our family background, don’t you know that?
Hope you realize your mistake and promise yourself to be honest always. You can  improve for the best only if you are determined to do so. Take care. All the Best.
Your loving brother,
XYZ.

Dear friend,

                       I received your letter confirming your decision to spend this vacation with us. We were all eagerly waiting to see you. However, you have mentioned in your letter about our Joint Family system and its disadvantages like no privacy, lots of work every day, need to get permission for outing, need to adjust with everyone to avoid problems.
But, friend in every system there are some advantages and disadvantages. You have seen only the disadvantage of joint family system. Let me explain its wonderful advantages. You have persons to look after you. Works can be shared. Expenses can be shared. Guidance will be there. Helping hands are always there in your sorrow. Your happiness will be doubled when it shared with them. Caring will be there. Relationship will be improved. Responsibility will be there.  If you are sick no need to depend on hotels. Remember this, the beauty about the Indian culture lies in its age-long prevailing tradition of the joint family system.  
         I hope you will find nice spending time with us in this vacation and also understand the importance of joint family system. I am eagerly waiting for the date to receive you from the railway station.
                                                                                                     Yours lovingly,
                                                                                                XYZ

Respected sir,
                      I have been the resident of the above mentioned area for the last twenty years. The people here are all educated and go to work and children go to school. I would like to bring your notice that the roads in this area are fully filled with illegal parking of trucks. It becomes very difficult to even walk specially during the rains. Not only this even the street lights are so poor, that it becomes very difficult for people to walk or take out their vehicles during late in  evening.
                      One must be aware that how irresponsible is to park vehicles like trucks in the residential area. Hence I request you to consider it and through your newspaper, I want to make one request to the concerned authority to take strict action against it. Also to  consider this matter as important and  park the trucks in some other non residential areas.
                      I shall be obliged if you publish my letter in your newspaper so that it catches the attention of the Councilor of our ward and an urgent action is taken.
Thanking you,
                                                                                                                             Yours faithfully,

13.Your younger brother who is staying in a hostel has failed in the Terminal examination and has become nervous. He is thinking to give up studies. Write a letter persuading him to continue the efforts and get success.

Dear brother,
                   I hope this letter of mine finds you in the good health. But what is this I hear about you? Are you really seriously planning to give up your studies, just because you failed in the terminal examination? It would then be a rash decision made without any thinking about your future. A single  failure should not dishearten you. It is not the end of the world for you yet. You must count your blessings. You are full of bouncing energy and very much talented in your activities. If you decide to give up your studies then you will be a big loser. You will be always identified as a school dropout.
                   Moreover, without adequate formal education, you will not be able to achieve ahead in life. The prospects for you anywhere and everywhere are bound to be at risk. Dearest brother, keep on working and revise your weak subjects then you are likely to pass your next examination with flying colours.
                   Try to work harder and this will make your task much easier and simpler. Best of luck for your studies.                                                                                                                                  
Yours lovingly,

                                                                                                                             A B C
