It’s been a long time that I haven't heard from you. How are you doing nowadays? Recently I have taken part in the Saraswati Puja ceremony in my school. Through this letter, I want to share that experience with you.
The Saraswati Puja is the most desired ceremony for all the students of your school. Throughout the year, we all wait for this day to come. Like all other years, I took part in the puja works from 3 days prior to the Puja. We went to other schools to invite them to our school’s Puja ceremony.
Every year, we have a grand ceremony of Saraswati puja. I stay in school from the day before the puja. This year was no exception as well. By the morning of that day, the Puja started. All the students of our school along with many other schools’ students also came to attend our ceremony. After the Puja got over, we distributed the Prasad among all who were present. Overall it was a pretty mesmerising ceremony.
How did you spend this year’s Saraswati Puja? Let me know in the next letter soon.

I have just finished reading the last letter you wrote to me. There you have asked me why I’m not coming to school to participate in the pre-Saraswati Puja ceremony. I’m so sorry to let you know that this year, I will not be able to participate in the Saraswati Puja due to my sudden sickness.
By the last week, I have fallen seriously ill. It’s typhoid that I am suffering from. For three days, I even had to get admitted to a hospital. With the help of doctors and medicines, I have been able to save myself. Currently, I am slowly recovering from that sickness. But due to the suffering, I am still very weak. Besides, I am going under a lot of restrictions. And the doctors have strictly advised me to take rest for at least one more month.
I deeply regret my inability to attend the Saraswati puja celebration. But I’m helpless. Please explain my reason to the other friends and teachers.
Your loving friend

It’s been a long time that I haven’t received letters from you. How are your days going? You know, recently I participated in a socio-cultural welfare program organised by my school on the occasion of this year’s Saraswati puja. Through this letter, I’m eager to share my experience with you.
For every years’ Saraswati Puja, our school plans something very unique. This year was no exception for that as well. This year, our school planned to dedicate the day to the socio-cultural enrichment of poor children. By the morning of the Puja, we had a small traditional ceremony in our school compound. After that, we went to a nearby slum and initiated a socio-cultural ceremony with the residing children of the area. Under this day-long program, we sang, danced and shared our cultural values with them. Besides, books, food and clothes were distributed among them too.
Overall, this year’s puja was so unique for all of us. How did you spend your Saraswati Puja? Let me know in the next letter.
Your best friend,

In your last letter, you asked me how I spent this year’s Saraswati Puja. In this letter, I want to share my unique experience of spending this year’s puja with you.
Every year, our school used to organise the Sarawati Puja with great grandeur. But as the global pandemic is going on now and all the schools are still closed, we knew that there would be no puja ceremony this year. But a few days prior to the puja, we received a notice from the school. Through that notice, we were informed that this year’s puja ceremony would be going to be organised virtually. On the day of Puja, we joined the meeting through a provided link. There we witnessed the Puja ceremony at our headmaster’s house. After the ceremony got over, we participated in various cultural activities virtually. In the end, our headmaster addressed all the students to stay safe and blessed.
I’ve never participated in such a virtual puja ceremony. I’m literally amazed by this unique initiative. What do you think of this? Let me know.
Best wishes and regards,
