A letter to Kyra - the sunshine girl


Dear Kyra,

I’m writing to you because you sound just like me. I’m a sunshine girl too. There was a time when I was scared of getting tanned, but that was before I discovered sunscreen.
I fell in love with the sun back in the summer of 1981 when I was five. We had traveled to Puri to beat the heat. On the rickshaw ride from the station to the hotel I was at my crankiest best when the rickshaw turned a corner and I saw the sea. It was the first time I saw that magical blue – and it was love at first sight.
That affair was destined to be much more than a one vacation stand. The years of my life thereafter were filled with longing for summer and beach trips. Gopalpur on sea, Chandipur on sea, Goa, Vishakhapatnam, Chennai, Mumbai, Kanyakumari, Cochin we did them all.
This summer unfortunately we couldn’t fit in a seaside vacation, but we’re planning to live it up at the swimming pool instead! We’ve got the trendiest swim wear ready and we’re ready to take the plunge.
The plan is - to get to the pool every morning armed with a picnic hamper and some huge beach towels. Plunge into the pool  - swim to your hearts content, come out  - attack the picnic hamper, lie on the beach towel under the sun umbrella - to cool off and then when the music gets irresistible - get up and dance. When the dancing makes you hot - plunge into the pool again!
How does the plan sound?
I’d love it if you could join me. We are sure to have lots and lots of fun!

Lots of love

Varsha
