Solution

Dear Som Shankar,
The easy way out would be asking your servant to say that you are not at home, or that you have left strict instructions that you are not to be disturbed at any cost. If you feel that your friend would be offended by this, then tell him that your parents do not approve of your meeting and talking when you should be spending your time studying . Explain to him how you are getting rebuked (by you parents) because he wants to pass time with you.

But please make it clear that your parents do not disapprove of him. (It's just, at the moment, they would rather want you to spent your time studying ).
Once the exams are over, he would be welcome to your house any time. But, for now, he should stay away.
