My dear Bhaiyya,
I hope you are doing well along with Bhabhi and dear Pankaj and Pinki.
I was glad to know of your promotion and your posting to Delhi. How happy do I feel about all that you have achieved and all through your hard labour and honest work.
As per your advice I have decided to take the Civil Services Examination this very year, though the time for preparations is not much. I shall be finishing my examinations on the 18th of this month and then put in all effort in preparing for the Prelims. I shall be offering Political Science as one of the subjects as advised by you. With your experience, your advice is what I value most. I would now like you to send me a detailed advice how I should plan my preparations. What should I be consulting for my General Studies and how I should plan the preparations of this subject, which has a vast course?
In Political Science also a planned study is called for that had been your subject too, though, of course, there have been a lot many changes since you took the examination. Still the pattern of preparation remains the same and you can best guide about it.
I keep too busy these days with my examinations, hence I am not able to write a more detailed letter. My preparations for the present examinations are going on well and all other things are as usual and normal.
I shall eagerly await your reply. With regards to you and to Bhabhi and love to Pankaj and Pinki.
