My dear Krishna,
I am really surprised to learn that you could not get admission for further studies in any of the colleges in Delhi. I know that this must be very disappointing to you, especially when you secured very good marks in the Higher Secondary Examination. Krishna, you should not be disheartened about this. Nowadays, it is not essential to get admission and a degree or diploma in the near future, but it is more essential to secure a job in a good company with a bright prospect.
I hope you would agree with me that many degrees and diploma holders are being seen roaming the roads in search of some suitable employment. So I shall advise you to find out some suitable job rather to be disappointed on not getting the admission for further studies.
Incidentally, I have seen an advertisement in the English Baily-THE INDIAN EXPRESS wherein some vacancies for the post of an Assistant and Private Secretary in the Office of Consultants’ Corporation of Industries, Chawri Bazar, Delhi have been advertised. I shall sincerely advise you to apply for one of the same. I am confident that you would have a good chance since you possess a very good academic record. I hope and trust that you would act upon my, advice.
Please also let me know whether I could be of any help to you.
Hoping for your sure success,
Radha Krishna Aggarwal,
