SUPERMAN!!

Wierd one huh?? BIG DEAL u shud've expected that from me! ok i'am making an effort not to write in the SMS lingo.....now i don't remember how to spell so.......

So, u obviously read comics when u were young. When we think(whenever!!) abt a super hero we usually get an image of a geek who transforms into a caper having special powers and usually not knowing where is he supposed to wear his chaddiz(eng wala dsn't have the same ring to it!!)

Even if u grew up with the indian super heros u obviously know about SUPERMAN!!! So why superman?? i never thought of this till i saw KILL BILL vol 2.....(HUH??) ok in a conversation in the movie this fact comes to light:

What is the difference between Superman and all the other super heroes??(there mite be more who set the bill but i'm talkin abt the ones that come to mind immediately)

All the other super heroes are regular ppl who become their alter egos i.e. the superhero but super man has an alter ego who is a regular geek Clark kent..wierd huh???

wot if superman was sick n tired of being him self wot wud he be thinking??? the perfect ans is this song by a band called "Five for fighting" chk out the lyrics bit long but be patient!

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me
I’m more than a bird…I’m more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It’s not easy to be me
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see
It may sound absurd…but don’t be naive
Even Heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed…but won’t you concede
Even Heroes have the right to dream
It’s not easy to be me
Up, up and away…away from me
It’s all right…You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy…or anything…
I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees
I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
inside of me ......
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for my dream
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
It’s not easy
It’s not easy to be me...

so who wud u rather be?????

i read superman's (aka christopher reeve ) auto bio - "still me" recently...it unveils how his defn of a super hero changes over the years, and thru his disabilities...a very touching account of how he was struck down by spinal cord injury and how he emerged from it, "still me"
