In the last letter you wrote to me, you mentioned your experience with the children’s day celebration in your boarding school. My experience at this year’s children’s day celebration was very good as well. I am writing this letter to talk about my experience.
This year, on the occasion of Children's day I participated in a program from my coaching class. Under the program, we went to the slum area near our locality with a whole day's agenda. By the morning we reached there, we distributed chocolates and food among the poor children. And we also gifted them some clothes for the upcoming Christmas. After this, we launched a month-long literacy campaign under which we are going to teach them the basics of the language, mathematics, and science.
It was such a beautiful experience of being able to do something for children who needed it. How are you going by the way? Is all your studying going well? Let me know your opinion about this participation of mine in your next letter. Take love and regards.

I have just received the last letter you wrote to me. There you asked me about my experience of the last Children’s day around a week ago.
For me, it was such a pleasant experience. First of all, it was my holiday from school. A program was launched from our local club and I have participated in the program. A cultural competition was organised by the senior members of the club. I took part in the drawing, recitation, and debate competitions. You know this is the first time I have participated in any debate competition. It was a mesmerising experience. Initially, I was indeed quite afraid. But with time, all my fear was blown away. I ranked 3rd in the recitation and 2nd in the debate competition. They awarded me with two books.
What do you think of this program? And how was your children’s day? By the way, have you participated in debate competitions? How is your experience? Let us know in your next letters. Take my love and regards.
Your loving friend

It’s been many days since I have not received any letter from your side. How are you? All of us miss you a lot since you have gone to boarding school. You know, last week I had a beautiful experience on Children's day.
This year, a program was organised by our school on the occasion of children’s day. This is the first time our school has organised a program on this day. It was a day-long function. All of the students of our school including me participated in the program. First, after reaching the school our headmaster delivered a speech about the significance of the children’s day celebration. Then the school authority organised a film show for the children in the school auditorium. After the film show ended and we had our lunch, we went for storytelling sessions. A cultural program solely attended by students was the last show of the day. I have also recited poetry of Kazi Nazrul Islam in the program.
How did you spend your children’s day this year? I will be waiting for your next letter. Take my best wishes and regards.
Your best friend,

In your last letter, you wanted to know if I have ever participated in any voluntary work from NGOs. Through this letter, I wanted to let you know that just last week I participated in voluntary service with an NGO on the occasion of Children's day.
I have spent this year’s children’s day in a unique way. I signed up to participate in a day-long voluntary work with an NGO named Surya Uday. Under this organisation, we first went out on a procession holding placards to spread awareness against Child Labour. Then we went to the nearest slums of our locality, where we tried to make people aware of the importance of education and told them why it’s harmful to children to get involved in hazardous industries. It was so sad to know that many of the area’s children work in such industries.
What is your opinion about the menace of child labour? Write to me about your views on this context in your next letter. I will be waiting.
Best wishes and regards,
Badal Kumar Ghosh
