I was reading news online in the morning. I read a headline which did not make any sense to me. Because it had a grammar issue as per my opinion. But I think, as the reporter has written the headline so he must have something in his mind and headline may have been grammatically perfect.
The headline was
Rahul was aiming to be a billionaire by the time he was 30
My concern is, the boy who was mentioned by the reporter. He was 26, when he thought that he would be a billionaire when he would turn 30 and now he is 27. So why the reporter has used was? As per my opinion the headline should have been Rahul was aiming to be a billionaire by the time he would turn 30.
