My dear Shruti,

I received your letter yesterday and was sad to learn that you are down with jaundice, since last week. I hope you will recover soon, and join us at the summer camp, being held at Kempty Falls in Mussoorie, from 15th May to 30th May. You will be happy to know that I have been made the incharge of the camping group.

The venue of the camp is very picturesque. It is located in the Garhwal hills and is famous for the waterfall. People from far – off places come to see this waterfall, which is a major tourist attraction. There will be ample opportunity for hiking and mountaineering, which we all are anxiously looking forward to.

We shall board Doon Express at 7 P.M. from Charbagh railway station in Lucknow on 14th May. Hence we must assemble at the station by 6 P.M.. During this time of the year the weather there will be pretty cold. You should therefore carry with you, some woollen garments, along with camping gear, like torch, matches, rope, binocular and camera, etc. In your case, you should also bring medicines that have been prescribed by the doctor. Please take your doctor’s advice, before confirming your participation in the camp.

We would be returning by the same train and will reach Lucknow on 21 st at 7 A.M. So please inform your parents to receive you at the station. I hope the programme is clear to you. In case of any doubt, please do write to me. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
