Superheroes, they have formed a part of my childhood just like many others I am sure. I used to amaze to see these heroes doing all feats at the drop of the hat. These superhuman beings would always fascinate me.
Top of my list was and still is Superman. The brave, bold and fearless – epitome of courage!!! The stories of Superman used to be such an inspiration for me. Superman dieing of radiation poisoning but still trying hard to complete all his work before he dies, but still he takes time off to save a girl who was about to jump off a building. And later whenever I would feel myself in difficult situation, I would hear Superman telling me that I am stronger than I think. I knew he was fictional but still the very thought would pull me out.
Then was Spiderman!! He was the urban, street level hero going into cosmic and international level adventures. But what I loved most about him was his dialogues, his witty wise cracks. Nothing serious when he is fighting the villains, he would be passing very witty jokes while fighting them. What I never liked about him was incidents when he would take decisions, they would be right ones definitely, but that would make him loose people he cared about. And he would do it knowlingly.
And I would never forget The Phantom, The Ghost who Walks. I actually
believed that he never died. He was one figure who I always felt, actually exists!!! He turned into a cult figure across the world. Every Sunday we would wait for our newspaper to arrive. It used to carry the comic strip of Phantom and the moment the paper would come, there would be a ma scramble among all brothers to lay their hands on the paper. Thanks tohim my childhood was spent fantacising about forests, animals and Africa.
These three were the top on my list heroes. And today on Children’s Day I thought would go through the trip again of reminiscing them all.
Ah yes, Children’s day!!! That reminded me of someone very special too. My kiddo sister – Amby Baby!! 😉 Not that she is a baby as such but being the youngest among us all, I always see her as a Baby. This kiddo is doing Chartered Accountancy degree but says “designing gona be just my 2nd choice u can say:(…butt mera dil-o-dimaag gna be designing only…can’t give dokha to my first love”.
She is the biggest confusion galore. This “Bachcha” would go to class and then come online to chat with all. =)) And according to her own open confession – “broo u noe css??aaree help karo na plss..m learning it onli9..cz institue waalo ne mujhe bahar utha ke pekh daallaa..=)) i wasnt going regularly plus dint shw interest in class LOLL..!!class chalti rehti thi n i used to chat on cell..!!n even bunked alsoo..=))=)) n after dis behaviour of myn dad didnt even giv me money:((:((:(( i mean dint pay institute ppl..LOOOLL..!!”
She is THE Cutest kid I have seen. The most “Phunny” one and can bring on 100 watt smile any moment on my face. Just like my other childhood superheroes. 😀 Happy Children’s day to you Amby. I know being a kiddo means each and every day is very special but still this day is fully dedicated one for you.
Besides Amby, happy children day to all the kids across the world!! On this day I feel, all we need to learn from a child is spontaneity, the quality to let go, positivity and to be present in the present. It doesn’t mean that we stop growing intellectually and become mentally retarded. All these qualities need to be a part of our nature while growing up.
