3. Indian wedding ceremonies involve various rituals and wedding in our family is no exception. We are expecting large turnout of our immediate and extended family members. Add up to this is friends and acquaintances. Considering this, I foresee my role as a key assistant to my parents or a page or a factotum.

4. In view of the above, I request you extend my date of joining to 13 December 2016 (Tuesday). I seek this extension as I would not like to embarrass myself by asking for leave immediately after taking a fresh job. Generally, job candidates join on Monday, however, I am making request to join on Tuesday as wedding reception will be conducted on Sunday and I will remain busy in post-marital logistic management on Monday.

5. I sincerely request to accede to my request. Your acquiescence will bolster my motivation level.

Warm regards,
