Dear Rasmika,

Hope this letter reaches you in pink health. How are your parents and your brother Sachin doing? So, how is your summer vacation been so far? I am spending my summer vacation this time doing something fruitful. Yes, I started reading the newspaper daily. And let me tell you, this good habit offers us a great sense of educational value.

It carries information about economy, politics, sports,  entertainment industry, business, commerce, and trade that enriches our knowledge. This way  we are up-to-date of what is happening in our country as well as the whole world. Besides, it enhances our language skills and vocabulary. After fostering this habit, I feel reading newspapers is a must for young learners. I would highly recommend that you too cultivate this habit.

I need to leave for my badminton class, so I shall end for now. Convey my regards to your parents and brother. Do reply without fail

Yours lovingly
