Dear Nibesh,

It's a great pleasure to know that you passed SLC exams in the 1st division. My joy knew no bounds when I saw your symbol number in the Gorkhapatra. I congratulate you on your success. We all expected that you'd farewell in the S.L.C examination. Our expectation has come true. I shall be glad to know in which area you will pursue your further studies. I believe you will join Science college majoring Biology. This will enable you to be a doctor. Think of your future career before you choose your subject. I think you will be a doctor as our country is short of doctors. This is my suggestion don't consider it seriously. It's up to you to decide.

I once again congratulate you and hope next letter from you.

Best regards

Satyam.
