When I grow up
Hope, wish, fantasy....
Call it what you may, but everyone dreams of being someone or doing
something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts,
rocket scientists, space explorer... Some dream of being clowns,
comedians and running away to a circus. Still others want to be lawyers,
doctors, cricketers or superstars.
The sky, as they say, is the limit to your dreams... But what's the
fun if you keep it all to yourself? So why not put pen to paper, or
finger to keyboard, and share with us what you dream of being when you
grow up? You can mail your dreams, along with your photograph to
[email protected] or send it by snail mail to 'Junior Observer', No.

yearn to be a doctor
I am Dinal Kulathilleke studying in Grade 10 at Rahula College,
Matara. My ambition is to become a doctor and treat my patients well. I
will give the best medicine and I will never be careless in my
profession as I will be dealing with human lives. I will never commit a
medical negligence as it cannot be replaced by anything.
I will study hard and pass my exams. First of all I will do my best
to enter the Medical Faculty of a University in Sri Lanka. I hope that
my dream will become a reality some day.
like science and to invent things
I am Dinara Nimshi Paranahewa, a student of Musaeus College, Colombo.
I am studying in Grade seven. My ambition is to be a Scientist. I like
science and to invent things. This is the age of science and it has
changed our entire world today. It is not the same world that our
ancestors lived in. If they were with us today today, they will not
recognise our world. I hope to be a famous Scientist, such as Albert
Einstein, Max Planck, William Shockley and Alexander Graham Bell. Today
we have electricity, mobile telephones, televisions, medicine,
computers, internet, submarines, power trains, cars, aircraft and many
other scientific marvels. I will identify better energy solutions for
the future, better electronic devices, ways to cure incurable diseases
and many things that will be useful to everyone.
want to be an archaeologist one day
My name is J.P. Vihandu Bismath. I study in Grade five at Vidura
College in Colombo. I enjoy reading History books and this inspired me
to be an archaeologist. My father, Viraj Lalindra and mother, Swarna
Ariyawansha help me a lot to achieve my dream.
My favourite archaeologist is Dr. Senarath Paranavithan. I will
emulate him. When I become an archaeologist, I will explore new places.
I will write many books on my new discoveries and explorations on
historical places. I will study hard and achieve my dream.
