My ambition in life is to become a teacher. There are a number of reasons for my choice. First, about 35 per cent of the people in India are illiterate. They are steeped in ignorance. They are governed by superstitions. By becoming a teacher, I will be able to remove illiteracy, ignorance and superstitions to some extent.
