My Favourite Poster
During my childhood, I had two posters in my room.
One poster was about Batman, my favorite Superhero. Why Batman? It’s simple, he is the best superhero as he doesn’t possess any gifted power. He gained all the abilities to fight crime on the basis of technology, his cleverness (he is street smart) and mastering several martial arts. “He is human” – this is his greatest strength. Unlike other superhero who came from outer space or got a powerful ring or got strength due to radioactive element, Batman power lies in his ability to perceive any threat (again street smartness) and intelligence. His bitter past and hope for a better future makes him a perfect vigilante. I can go on and on but just want to say – He is just awesome! On a side note, I love the character of Bruce Wayne more than Batman.
A second poster was of a quote “Empty mind is devil’s workshop”. My mom use to say this quote a lot, she always pushed me to do something rather than spend time glued in front of the television. (I still managed to sneak into the TV room to watch cartoon network especially Batman).
Anyways, our mind has limitless potential, and we sometime let it rot. I always try to keep myself occupied as much as I can. May be that’s why I am fond of developing new hobbies (I call myself Jack of all trades!) Whenever I am bored, I think about this quote and try to engage my mind. This habit has helped me a lot over the years (especially reading books).
Currently, I have a poster on my wardrobe of my favorite poem – Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski.
