My dear Mohini,

Many many thanks for your letter of congratulations which I received this morning.

Until last week I had no information at all that I was going to be engaged to Mr. Jagdish. It was only on Monday that Mr. Jagdish and his parents came to our place for evening tea. I was talking quite freely with Mr. Jagdish's parents and was not at all aware of the purpose for which their visit to our house that evening was planned. Immediately after tea my parents called me inside the bed room and asked my reactions about their feeling of choosing Jagdish as my life partner. I maintained a bashfull silence which was presumed as acceptance. Of course, it was acceptance of
the proposal.

Father has proposed to solemnize the wedding in this very summer, but
I am in favour of its being held in winter. I hope you will be with me on this happy occasion whenever it materializes.

Please remember me to your mother. With best wishes to you and, namaskar to Bhai Sahab.

Yours sincerely,

I am overjoyed to hear of your engagement of Miss Usha.

Miss Usha had always been a brilliant and intelligent student in the college, besides being beautiful, vivacious and cultured. While you are lucky in getting such a nice life companion, I must say that she too is equally lucky in getting a handsome, bright and cultivated young man like you for her husband.

Please accept my heartiest congratulations on this happy occasion. I look forward for the happier occasion, your wedding.

Dear Ratan,

I am highly thankful to you for your letter of congratulations on my engagement to Usha. Usha had been more than simply a class fellow of mine. There was something in her that charmed me and led to my infatuation for her. But I had controlled my feelings all along and had been watching her reactions. In course of time I perceived a hint coming from her, which encouraged me to propose to her. But that was only after we both had finished our M. A. Final examination. Usha's response was positive and the thing was divulged to our respective parents for consent which they being old acquaintances so gladly granted. And then came the day when the two of us were betrothed.

While I thank my stars for this greatest happiness of mine your good wishes for my welfare deserve no less credit, and hence my heartiest thanks.

Looking forward earnestly to see you on the wedding day.

Yours sincerely,

4. Congratulations letter on success in the Examination

Dear Chandan,

The 'National Herald' of today brought the news of your excellent success in your Intermediate Examination. Your name figuring in the list of candidates passed with merit goes to add to appreciation for your school teachers and parents. The way is now clear for you to join the best university of the state.

What university do you intend to join and which subjects do you propose to choose in B. A. ? Personally I would suggest that you should go in for commerce subjects as they would fit you for a managerial post in your own firm. It will be a double benefit. Not only would you be getting an executive position suited to your abilities and capabilities but will also make it convenient for your father to have his own son as the manager of his concern, thereby saving him a handsome amount of salary which he will, otherwise, have to pay to an outsider.

Well, this is only a suggestion. You are perfectly free in your choice because one is oneself the maker of one's destiny.

Please accept my heartiest congratulations and convey the same to dear uncle and auntie.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Madan,

Many many thanks for your letter of congratulations on my passing Intermediate examination with merit. It was not less due to encouragement and inspiration given by you than by my own effort.

Father has decided to get me admitted in the Allahabad University. As regards my subjects, my choice differs from yours. I intend to go for the study of humanities. That is why I have decided to choose English Literature, Political Science and History. As you might be knowing, I have been very much interested in English Literature and this is due to our teacher who infused in me the love for the subject. Hope you don't mind my choice of subjects being different. You see, I wish to compete for higher competitive examinations in which social science subjects are more paying than others.

Rest is all fine. With best wishes and kind regards,

Yours sincerely,
