Flexible Dreams

A classroom filled with smart, bright kids.

Teacher threw a question, "Whats your dream? What do you want to become when you grow up?"

Different answers came.
"I want to create rockets".
"I'll build most powerful supercomputer."
"I'll build skyscrapers that will almost touch the sky."

Twenty years later at school reunion.

The same teacher asked, "What have you become?"

Different answers came.
"I sell soaps."
"I sell credit cards."
"I sell 'carrots'."

more ironic responses would have been.

"I sell fire crackers"
"I sell calculators"
"I sell fertilizers"

Its not farce. Just with time people changed, their dreams changed.

Keep watching this space.
