It is often said one must dream big and try hard to achieve their goals. One such seems to be the case of Nagaraj, a 12-year-old boy from the slums of Bengaluru. In a video shared by a social worker and influencer named Mohamed Ashik, this young boy was featured narrating his aspirations and talking about his dream job.

Nagaraj expressed having no regrets about his small home as more than that was his faith to become something great one day. "I'm happy. Bigger house will come after I'm grown up." While speaking to Ashik, the kid describes what he aspires to become in the future and says, "When I grow up, I will become an IAS officer." "All are doing same only. Why not same like them (why not do something different)," he adds.
