There are times when while reading a book you see yourself moving along the fictional journeys and living a thousand lives ,waking in the shoes of those fictional characters without moving an inch from that cozy reading nook.
But what if someday a miracle happens, and you may get a chance to post a letter to those fictional characters . Don’t you think that would be crazy ,and exciting enough to turn your world upside down. That only chance is NOW, and you are all set to blurt out those feelings to that male/female protagonist. Your mind is now loaded with plenty of stuffs because to some you want to confess your love , to some you must be craving to tell why you hate them so much , to some you may tell that they could have been better dealing with that particular decision or that whatever they did was not justified.
So here goes a few small letters that I would love to post to my all time favorites.
HAPPY READING !
1.ANNE FRANK from The Diary of a Young Girl
Words will fall short to describe how much I adore you and your ideologies. You were just 13 when in 1942, Nazis occupied Holland , but the way you faced the situations bravely can move even the hardest of souls. Recording such vivid impressions in a diary at such a tender age is not easy but the way you did it was remarkable. You went into hiding, faced hunger, constant cruelties , threat of death and what not ,but then too you once quoted that ” IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING I STILL BELIEF THAT PEOPLE ARE REALLY GOOD AT HEART”. The most ironical part of the situation is that you are not fictional, although we are connected through your diary pages only as 1942 was not my near .But you are still and always be a living example of human courage and humanity.
2. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
Dear Mr. Darcy,
At the threshold of your impeccable love story I didn’t liked you much because you looked down upon everyone and considered them inferior , as economically they were not as efficient as you were . Your nonchalant behavior towards Lizzy as you once stated these lines for her ” Tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt me” disappointed me.
But eventually I got this that I misunderstood you as a snob and you are instead a conscientious person by heart. But that hatred was ephemeral . Your witty comebacks, and your exchange with Elizabeth, at Netherfield Park(Mr. Bingley’s residence) gave me more insight about you as a person. Your gentle behavior with Georgiana, your politeness with Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner, your courteousness and care for Elizabeth, and even your acceptance that you were wrong in separating Jane and Charles made me believe that you have surely grown as a person.
When you proposed Ms. Bennet, for instance, you dwelled more upon how unsuitable a match she was than on her charms, beauty, or anything else complimentary. Her rejection of your advances built a kind of humility in your inner self. But you continued to demonstrate your devotion to Elizabeth, in spite of your distaste for her low connections, and rescued Lydia and the entire Bennet family from disgrace, going against the wishes of your haughty aunt, Lady Catherine , by continuing to pursue Elizabeth. In the end you proved yourself worthy of Elizabeth.
You have set a such a tall benchmark that there are very few men who can attain it.I wish I could witness the entire plot unfolding right infront of my eyes. If there is a parallel universe, I would love to be your companion and ask men from this side to take lessons from you.
PS– A look might at your soulful gaze, give me chills. “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you!”
Your ardent admirer
3. Aisha Banerjee from Wake Up Sid
Dear Aisha ,
I just cant help but admire the various emotions pulled-off by you throughout your journey from a well read aspiring writer to a regular column writer. You inspired people to make their career in the field they like the most and that too with sheer ease and spontaneity. Despite being a newbie in a city like Mumbai you came along in an outstanding manner and turned a rich spoiled brat into an evidently talented photographer.It was you who made me realize that writing can be joyful too and that it can turn out be a satisfying and wonderful job once a person is dedicated for the same.
PS– I wish to land up in a job like yours.(MBA is apparently not my cup of tea.)
4.Anand Sehgal from Anand
To the better half of Babu Moshai,
You are my father’s favorite and mine too. I have grown up adoring you. Thanks for introducing me to the ball of happiness. You were the one who taught mankind the real meaning of life. Life was typically unfair to you and you felled short of time ,then too you gave all your attention to the quality of life you lived and not the quantity.
Every time I see you, I end up with more brighter definition of love and life . The way you fought cancer can undoubtedly move even the hardest of souls .Babu Moshai could have failed in confessing his love If you would have not been there with him giving him the courage to take a step forward .
Its awe inspiring how in a such a short span of time you won of the hearts of everyone and made them shed tears at your sad demise.
PS– I wish you could have survived for long.
5. Rasheed from A Thousand Splendid Suns
Take some time out from your busy life and die.
6.Augustus Waters from The Fault In Our Stars
I hope this letter finds you well.
To the one who is on a roller coaster ride that only goes up.
You are truly one of a kind and the one who always stands out in a crowd .I wonder how can oblivion be your fear as the one familiar with you can hardly forget you , hence you need not worry about being remembered. Few people in this world are so good that they don’t need any recognition and you are one of them. Your tireless and passionate devotion for Hazel Grace Lancaster is truly an inspiration. I am so glad that Hazel has found you and both lived your forever in numbered days.
Your friend forever,
7.Jerry from Tom and Jerry
You have been through so much. Running , jumping , biting, eating and crawling throughout the day is not an easy task. But it seems like doing all this is a cake walk for you.No matter how difficult your life is, in the end all that matters is you survived.You, with all your brains and wits, have almost always emerged triumphant.
Thanks from giving us an awesome childhood.
PS– I secretly wished that Tom could win sometime.
8. Severus Snape from Harry Potter Series

This is just to say that you are missed.
I wish you were NOT DEAD.
Your fan always.
