Dear Shurti, How are you? How are you getting on in your new set-up? You left (41) Pune only a month ago but it feels like ages (42) we last met. I miss you a lot, especially (43) the study hours when we used to sit together and discuss our doubts. Memories are still fresh, going for shopping, playing badminton on Sundays, chatting for hours. I really miss all those sweet moments spent with you. Why don’t you drop in here during your winter break? We shall visit all the places we used to and have (44) fun. We shall meet our old friends and plan for a get together. I am sure you will think of something come visit. Do write to me when you are coming. I shall pick you up at the railway station. Convey my love and regards to your dad and mom.(45) Priya
