Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing this letter to request you to grant me a week off from 20th to 27th December. My name is Kamaljit Kaur and I am a first year student of Fashion Design and Merchandising course in your college.

My mother is a heart patient and her surgery is due on 21st December. She has been keeping unwell for quite some time now and the doctors have advised her to undergo a bypass surgery as soon as possible. My father is an army man and is currently posted at the Jammu border which is on high alert due to the prevailing tension with the neighbouring country.

Therefore, he would not be able to take care of my mother after the surgery.  As I am the only child of my parents, I want to take my mother’s responsibility.

Kindly help to approve my leave request. Also, once I am back to college, please allow me to sit late in the library in the evening to complete my pending notes.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Kamal
