Dear Sajini

Thanks a lot for inviting me to visit you after my examinations. What a pleasure it would have been if I could have been with you for a few days!

I am sorry I will not be able to come to Kolkata after my examinations are over as I intend joining a Computer Graphics course during the holidays. I have already got myself registered for the course and have paid for the fees. As you know I wish to pursue a career in advertising and this break between classes seemed a good time to pursue the course. I am also looking out for a part time summer job in the children’s library here.

I promise to visit you during the pooja break, When Kolkata will be at its best.

Yours lovingly
