Our Sunday afternoons were a 'comfort routine'. Eating unlimited puri and tomato raitha, which mom doled out right from the pan to our plates and reading a stack of comics.
Speaking of comics did you watch Dark Knight?
Initially all I wanted to do was bite into Bale (oh so hot!), hug Ledger and run away as far as possible from him (oh so psychotic and brilliant!). And give a huge pat on Nolan's back. Bloody Brilliant!
Batman happens to be my favorite super hero, because he is the only super hero who never had any special powers. He is all human and is powered solely by his spirit. Of course the gadgets(Check out the sexy Bat Pod, I want me one!) helped him too. Well gadgets helped James bond too but come on. Rico Suave, womanizer James Bond vs Hot, hard working, ass kicking Batman? I would pick Batman any day. He is dark, he has to be as delirious as the criminals he is fighting.
Christopher Nolan's take on Batman will be a hard one to beat for a long time.
Batman of the future aka Batman and Beyond showed how a younger Terry takes on the role of Batman after Bruce Wayne ages and his fight dwindles. There is hope! if people like Bob Kane and Christopher Nolan continue what they are doing, I can make my kids read Batman just like my dad made us.
Back to our tomato raitha which used to fuel me, while I was busy nurturing my love for Batman. While Batman lived on in my heart pooris got dumped along the way. Deep frying dough is not my type of food exactly. But sometimes you need that comfort.
