Hope, wish, fantasy....
Call it what you may, everyone dreams of being someone or doing
something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts,
rocket scientists, space explorers... Some dream of being clowns,
comedians and running away to a circus. Still others wish 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.
