Dear Manoj,

How are you? I have not send you any letter for a long time. I have something to tell that will make you happy. You know that I was very bad in drawing but still loved to draw. You always cheered me up for my better drawing when we were in same school. You will be glad to know that I have a new teacher in my school and he has made me expert in drawing. One month ago there was a art competition in our school and I became 1st there. At the end of this month, there will be a bigger competition in our school and I will do my best there. I am learning other activities like sports and music also in my new school.

However, I miss you a lot as we did all these together in my old school. Looking forward to meet you soon.
