LETTER-WRITING is an important channel of communication between people who are geographically distant from one another. In earlier times when the telephone and e-mail were not available, the only means of communication between people was through letters.
So, here I am going to show how you can write a letter. In this article, we will provide you with detailed information regarding the formal letter format to your mother describing the part you played in a relief party. Read on to know everything about formal letter format. Below I have given the full format of a letter, by following which you can write the letter and can apply for.

My dear Mother,
I am very sorry that I could not write you earlier. It is due to the fact that all the students of our hostel joined a flood relief party and went out to the neighbouring villages for a few days.
The sights we saw were really heart-breaking Near Bhedia-it was all a vast sheet of water stretching to the horizon on all sides. Hardly any brick built house was visible, let alone the thatched or mud houses which were so common in this area.
First, we filled up our small rowing boat with cooked meal, chira gur, medicines and clothes. We started early morning and went out distributing food to the hungry and stranded people. From a distance we rowed to a double storied pucca building and found all the members of the family and some neighbours huddled in the attic. The cattles numbering around twenty were marooned on the root. None of them had anything to eat for three days: paucity of drinking water and milk for the babies were other problems. In fact, probably they were counting the hours of death. As we arrived there with all sorts of help, we were bestowed with all sorts of blessings and they thankfully accepted the relief we brought to them.
We also saw a couple of carcasses floating around and the vultures perched on branches of trees. We worked day and night and moved around from place to place to bring relief to the stranded and helpless creatures. We cooked, ate and slept on the boat, but never felt tired. Indeed, we were all happy and excited that we could do something to the flood-striken people. Our party returned only the day before yesterday and everybody is in the fettle. Hope this will find you in good health. My love to Khukhu, Monti and Mithu. Do accept my regards.
