Dear Avinash,

The memories of the time spent together with you last month still makes me and everyone with whom I share jovial. Your company made the escapade have a life time imprint on me and there is no way as big to thank you for being an amazing host.

The mundane routine of my work life called for the holiday to Darjeeling and so I packed my bag and informed you so hastily. I had planned only a day visit to your house and the rest to be a lone discovery. However, on reaching your place, the warm welcome that I received from you and your wife, filled me with joy. Moreover, Darjeeling is one of the best places I have ever been to and you surely live in heaven. The amazing sun rise at Tiger Hill, the bonfire at your place and toy train ride that we had together was remarkable.

I am sending you with this letter the photographs of the beautiful time that we spent together. Hoping to have many more holidays with you all.

Love

Avantika
