Those silly dreams!


As I child, those gigantic brown-colored NP lorries fascinated me a lot. I remember reading in my mind, the names of the states it traveled, written in the columns on its body – Maharashtra | Andra Pradesh | Orissa | West Bengal and so on...

I used to envy those lorry drivers and dreamed of becoming one when I grow up. I believed it was one of the easiest ways to visit places. 

Ahhh… those days when dreams were not associated with money!  


What was your dream, as a child?

I had that dream too. I just love traveling. And still envy the life that these lorry drivers live. They go all around and get paid for it too. Too good a job if you ask me.!!

I had a dream of owning a library and sitting and reading a book for the whole day and do nothing. Actually I dream of it even now :)

As I liked the smell of books and new pencils and pens, the stationery shop was like a little heaven for me...and I always wanted to own one! I still do!

The lorry driver has a really tough job - yes the innocence of children.

I remember I told my teacher in 2nd grade that I wanted to be a robber. Well I always wanted to be the robber when we played 'Kallan and Police'

lovely post
the last line those days when dreams were not associated with money is true
i had dreams of being an astronaut

and the funny one was of my friends
who after reading a few detective stories wanted to be detectives

they conveniently found a suspect....who came to live in a locked house ....in neighborhood
he seemed different talked to no one and stayed home throughout day

my friends took turns watching the fellow missing tutions ....their dream ended when teacher contacted
mother of one of them ...a couple of slaps bring out the truth and ended their dreams

the suspect had come to work in the steel factory from other state

he talked to no one as he had no friends plus difficulty with language
and slept through the day as he worked in a night shift
thanks
