December 20, 2010 My dear Aman, As we prepare for our final year in school, I have great news to share with you. You know that I topped the National Level Science and Maths Scholarship Examination. I have been told that this means that I would get a scholarship of up to Rs. 200,000 for whatever course of study I opt for after Class 12.
My dad was extremely pleased at this great news and gifted me what very few fathers would dare to trust their sons with, a Blackberry phone. Being connected with this mobile is not subject to the limitations of time and space as is the case with other mobiles. It has all the communication features that you can expect from a Blackberry, including the unique advantage of email served up by the Blackberry Internet Service and all the variety of messaging options (SMS, MMS, and IM). Would you believe it, it weighs just 3.38 ounces and is just .
55 inches thin? If I went ahead with further details of this magical gadget, this letter would go on for hours. When we meet, I will show you this powerful computer playing between my fingers so that you can appreciate it better. The best way to describe this Blackberry phenomenon is to declare that I have power in my hands, power born out of the quickest possible way to extract information from any corner of the world. The honour that my father has bestowed upon me with this gift necessitates my using this power to strengthen my intellectual acumen to reach greater glory.
I am sure I shall have your good wishes in my endeavours. I hope to see you soon. Please convey my regards to your parents. Yours affectionately, Prateek
