Dear Priya,

            How are you? I’m glad to receive your letter.

            I want to share an amazing experience with you. A couple of days ago me and my friends were playing in the park. Suddenly it started raining and we ran to take shelter under the big peepul tree. But we were completely drenched. The raindrops were showering us and we were laughing in joy. We started to recite,’ Rain Rain go away, come again another day’. Some of us were jumping in the mud puddle. We were running towards home and shouting in joy. It was a memorable experience for me.

            Did you ever drench in rain? Share your experience. Please take care. I am waiting for your reply.

                                                                            Your Best friend
