I was happy to receive your letter the other day. Your Anu aunty was admitted to hospital on September 9th. She was unwell for some time. How is Raju at his studies? I hope you are taking proper care of your health. I hope you will be punctual in your writing letters to us and will come on Dasara vacation. More when we meet Bye...
Can I replace the line in bold as below?
"I hope you will be touch with us and will come for a Dasara vacation."
Yes, you can make that replacement. I would, however, say "keep in touch" rather than "be in touch".
The is another problem you may wish to correct. Your third sentence says your aunt was unwell, but it also means that she is now well. You used the past tense. What you want to say (since she is now in the hospital) is -- she has been unwell for some time. (Present perfect progressive tense). That means her condition began in the past but continues today.
