Question: It is not unusual for a lower-middle-class girl to dream big. How unrealistic were Sophie’s dreams? [CBSE (AI) 2015]

Answer: Sophie is a young girl from a lower-middle-class family. She wants to open a boutique and also become an actress or a fashion designer or a manager. She is an incurable dreamer and an escapist. Although she was warned against such dreams by her friend, Jansie and her father she ignore them. Dreams are very important to go ahead in life. If there were no dreams there would not be any progress anywhere. But being a mere dreamer is not enough. One should be realistic and practical as well. If our imagination has only wings, it will not take us anywhere unless and until we are firmly grounded also. Sophie’s dreams were just imagination, a flight of fancy which took her nowhere. She derived momentary delight from her dreams and that was all.
