I am pleasantly surprised to receive your invitation to Gurleen’s wedding. My god, has she grown so big? I still remember her as a tiny doll in a pink frock. How time flies!

I would have loved to join you on this auspicious occasion but my father is in hospital. He had a heart attack last week and needs

my constant care. I feel bad I won’t be there to bless Gurleen and join you on the happy occasion personally, but believe me, the loss is entirely mine.

Please accept my best wishes. I am writing to gudia separately.
