Dear Ajith,

Received your yesterday. I fully understand your situation. Deciding in a career is a pretty difficult task. But remember, the most important thing is is to know what your capabilities are and then decide what you want.

As far as I can see, you don’t like science, and you are a good speaker. This makes you capable of teaching or being a lawyer.

I think your ability to argue your way out of any situation will stand you in good stead in a courtroom. You are also an avid reader of crime fiction. So, law is not a totally unfamiliar subject for you. In fact, I am surprised the idea didn’t already occur to you. Maybe you are wary of the difficulties involved in becoming a lawyer.

I wouldn’t let that worry me if I were you. What is important is determination. If you like imparting knowledge, why then, teaching is the line for you!

I’ll think about other options also and then I will write again.

Till then keep your chin up, and don’t worry, something good will turn up.

Do write soon.

Your loving sister
