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. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
