I want to help the poor

I am Shanmugathasan Sharugesan. I study in Grade Seven at Jaffna Hindu College. My dream is to become a doctor one day. I will provide medicine free of charge for the poor. I will do my profession as a service and not only to earn money. I will treat my patients well. My teacher, Santhini Sunthareswaran helps me a lot. My parents also support me. I wish my dream becomes a reality.

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] yahoo.com or send it by snailmail to ‘Junior Observer’, No. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
