Model Answer 1:
When I was a teenager, I used to write letters to a girl of my age. In fact, I was in love with her. So, to express my feelings, the letter was a great mode for me. Thank you for the question that reminds me the early part of my life.

I was born and brought up in a restrict Hindu family here in Gujrat. At that time, everything was restricted. Actually, the locality I used to live in with my family was more restricted and did not allow such issues. But I survived the days. Now the girl is my better half and we are having a peaceful life in the same place where our love began. I was just crossing the border of my teenage and she was 18 when I fell in love with her. Gradually, the time changed. The point of view of the people also was changed after we entered into this millennium. But I miss the days of letter writing.

I used to write the letter to Adeeti. She is now the proud mother of my kids and we are a happy family with the two babies. She was a teen at the time she received the letter from me. In fact, I saw her first in the street while returning from my college. She was in the same college and lived nearby of my residence. Gradually, I came to know about her details and profile. She had two older brothers and one of them used to escort her to and from the college. So, it was difficult for me to talk with her in the streets. Finding no other ways, I wrote the letter to her. One of my friends used to deliver the letter to her. And the maximum level of secrecy was maintained lets I do not get caught. Besides, she was also in love with me and used to deliver her emotions in the form of a letter to my friend. But I had to pay a good price to use my friend as the courier.  

I had sent a good number of letters to her. Initially, she did not agree to be in love with me. But gradually, she was in love. It happened as the letters contained emotional speeches. I used to convince her with a special type of attempt. The letters were also about the untold speeches of mine. In fact, I was unable to meet her in person until I left the college. Her brothers were the escorts and only females were allowed to talk with her or meet her at home. She became a bit relaxed when she crossed the college like me. So, I described my emotions on the letter and regrets for not being able meeting her. I also wanted to meet her secretly in the college canteen but she denied. In fact, I had to meet her at the university when she was able to come alone. Our love grew and matured after I completed my graduation. 

It was the early part of my life and now I am near my 40s. So, remembering the days provide me with a special type of pleasure. The feelings were outstanding. I was always worried about the matter that if I get caught, Adeeti will be punished by her family. Luckily, nothing such happened even after I get caught. In fact, her mother came to know about the letter and read one of it. But she did not express her reaction and only for her cooperation, it has been possible for me to get married with Adeeti. I really miss the days of letter sending.
