Sample Answer

Dear Tom,
Hope you are doing well. It was great talking to you after such a long time. I was so excited to see you in two weeks time as I promised to you, until I checked my ‘to do’ list. I’m so sorry to inform you that I wouldn’t be able to make it during this time.
Actually, I’ve to attend a business meeting in Chennai and the dates coincide with the days I was supposed to be with you. What happened is that I’ve been under so much work pressure since last few days that this trip just slipped off from my mind. I know, you must’ve started planning already about my visit to your home town but don’t worry I’ll definitely make it soon. What about next month end? We have a long week end coming up from the 27th to 30th.
Just check whether you have any commitments during this time and get back to me. If it works out, it would be a memorable time for both of us. Since our college days, we haven’t really been able to spend much time together as we both got busy with our respective careers. We can go around places which you always told me about your city, enjoy your favorite street food and just talk.
Hope to see you soon. Give my regards to your mom and dad.
Best wishes,

Sample Answer

Dear Jimmy,

How are you doing? Hope this letter finds you well. It’s been really long since we last met.

I’m excited to let you know that I’ve shifted to a new house, a fortnight back. Things have settled down and I’m planning to organize a house warming get-together this month end, preferably on the 28th. Since, it’s a long weekend, you can come on the 27th itself. This would be a great opportunity for us to spend some quality time together. We haven’t really been able to bond up since you moved to the suburbs for your job.

I can’t wait to tell you about the house, it’s just what I always dreamt of. The location is a little off the city centre, away from the maddening traffic and noise. The best part is that it’s a ground floor independent house which comes with a garden and a backyard. The garden has some lovely fruit trees, giving it a rustic appearance. It’s amazingly serene to stroll there while hearing the birds chirping in the background.

What I really like about the place is that it brings the best of both the worlds. Not only do I get to enjoy the countryside calmness but also am able to avail good transport system and all other amenities of a city life. It’s very comfortable to reach the office in the mornings and do my grocery shopping during the weekends. My parents too have adjusted very well to the new place. Moreover, the house is spacious with three big bedrooms making it easy to accommodate our guests.

I can’t wait to see you on the 27th. Give my regards to your mum and dad.

Sample Answer

Dear Puneet,

I am writing to apologise for not being able to attend your farewell party. I felt very emotional after hearing the news of your transfer owing to the fact that we will no longer be sharing the same cabin.

The reason I will not be a part of the goodbye party is that my wife is hospitalised due to some minor illness. At this crucial time, she needs my support and attention completely. It will take around a week for her to recover.

Anyways, I wish you a great life ahead. I will never forget the time we have spent together. I have also learned a lot of things from you to become successful in life, like punctuality, perseverance and dedication. You have always been a great support and inspiration to me. We will keep in regular touch through phone and emails. Kindly share your new contact details as soon as possible.

Once again, please accept my sincere apologies.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours Sincerely,

Sample Answer

Dear Mr. Singh

I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. I am writing to inform you that my studies are really getting affected due to the new tenant, who has recently moved in upstairs. His name is Shantanu and his behaviour is quite weird.

Since, I am also a student and preparing for civil services, I need peace and silence to concentrate on my studies. Shantanu is a also a college going boy. However, he never studies. He is also a spoiled brat. His friends keep visiting him. they all drink and party till late night. Moreover, they also play music at a very high volume which not only disturbs us but others as well.

I have spoken to him about the disturbance and requested him to maintain some silence but, he did not cooperate at all. I would appreciate it if you could speak to Shantanu and ask him to exhibit the behaviour of a good citizen.

Thanking you in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
