Dear Banu,

Today is a holiday and I’ve had my first good sleep many days. Our School Annual Social Gathering got over yesterday, and today we are all enjoying a well-deserved holiday.

The last ten years were hectic – what with practice and rehearsals and planning. I was in charge of the Guest Committee and there were invitations to be printed and sent, special chairs to be hired, nameplates to be made and so on. Besides, I was a participant in the Koli dance. Rehearsal days were indeed tiring. Our dance teacher was a perfectionist, and would take practices till late night.

You will be pleased to know I won the ‘Best Girl’ Award. Mummy and Daddy were so thrilled and proud. The function went off like clockwork. Mr.Tamane, the DSP, was our Chief Guest. He gave an enlightening speech and his wife gave away the prizes. Then followed the variety entertainment programme. Our Koli dance was well appreciated. The principal’s announcement of a two-day holiday was greeted with loud cheers! We have two days to relax and let the strain of the last ten days wear off.

Do write to me soon.

Your loving friend,


ABC
