Many boys failed in Maths., so the math. Exam will be held again on 9th August. Everything else is fine. When are you coming. Tell Bhayia ji (father) that I have cleared all papers in six monthly examinations. Namaste to Mataji (mother) chachi (aunt), elder aunt. Kultar Singh (younger brother) had fever on 24th night and 25th July evening. Now he is o.k. Do not worry about anything.
