Hahaha .. came across this fun story. Wanted to share here with you guys. Hope makes you smile.
“Akka(elder sister) I want some help from you,” said my younger brother.
He was in the fifth standard(as far as I remember) and I was in the seventh standard.
“What help?” I asked.
“Will you teach me how to write a ‘love letter’?”
My heart started to beat very fast.
“He is only in the fifth standard and why does he want to learn how to write a love letter?” I was astonished!
“But why do you want to write a love letter? And whom do you want to write?”
“I want to write it to my teacher,” he said innocently.
I was thunderstruck!
“Why do you want to write a love letter to your teacher?”
“She gave us homework to write a love letter. She said us to change the reason”
“Change the reason? What is meant by change the reason’?”
Now I was in total confusion.
“She gave us a sample love letter and told us to write it in our own words”
“She gave you a sample letter? Come on show me”
He ran inside and brought a notebook and opened it.
I saw the sample love letter.
It read like this:
My name is Ram. I am in the fifth standard. Today I am suffering from a fever. Hence I will not attend the school. Please grant me one day leave”
“So this is the love letter?” I asked controlling my laughter.
“Yes. We have to change the reason. Instead of ‘suffering from fever’ we have to write something else in our own words”
“Ayyo Rama!! It is not a love letter it is a leave letter”
“I thought both are the same,” he said innocently.
