Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

– Charles Caleb Colton

Okay, honestly I’ve never heard this before until recently last month. Something like this. 😛

Anyways, paying homage, to one legend of a guy who countless people who countless times try to imitate (and so far fail, not getting the point at all) who has been an inspiration to me throughout my life, made this with the help of a friend (funnily also called Steve) last year on the his first death anniversary.

Paying tribute to the Legend

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash.

Be water, my friend.” ― Bruce Lee

This is one of my most favourite lines said by the aforementioned legend, who died 40 years ago today. Although he passed on from this world much before I was born, throughout my life he inspired me to be myself and continues to do so. Some of his very simple words brings me to tears at times, it’s the way he lived that tells his tale.

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

He himself was the very example of his words, as his presence lives in the hearts of millions. Thank you shīfu for your teachings.

The world’s first superhero turns 75 years old

Today 75 years ago, an entire genre was born leading to creation of true action in popular culture and media On this day the world’s first superhero was born – Superman. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster sometime in 1933, the Man of Tomorrow manifested in Action Comics #1 on April 18, 1938 (cover dating June, which will coincide with the release of the movie Man of Steel)

Superman_Wonder_Woman_Batman_by_JukkartWhile being the among the oldest most widely recognized heroes till date along with Batman since 1939 and Wonder Woman since 1941, and today being filled with a galaxy of heroes, Superman remains the most important creation and iconic figure in culture, not only as American but for the world as the first beacon of hope.

75 years on, and still #1 with a fight close to the neck with the other side of the coin (le Batman). Personally I was always a Batman fan, but Superman has a special not to mention important place in all our hearts. As a friend of mine said,

Batman is the hero the world needs. Superman is the hero we all want to be.

Anybody can be Batman, but who doesn’t want to be Superman?

What if a child dreams of becoming other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to be something greater?

Here is the latest awesome trailer which was released yesterday, which you must have seen 50 times already (like me) unless you haven’t if you lived under a rock in the past 24 hours or so. Recommended to watch in HD.
Warning: Goosebumps and tears eminent.

superman-returns-logo-cartoon-925281That’s not a ‘S’. In my world, it’s a symbol of Hope.

Here is the previous one .


You will give the people an ideal to strive towards.
They will race behind you.
They will stumble. They will in fall.
But in time, they will join you in the sun.
In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.

man of steel fortress of solitudeThis summer, we will believe a god can walk on earth.

We will believe a man can fly.

Help us again believe.

Always be Batman

urlIf you could be any fictional character in the world, who would you choose to be? Why?

For me, this is the answer. And well for those who know me, was pretty much obvious.

Every child needs a Super Hero growing up. For as long as I can remember my super hero has been Batman. I have always been a Batman fan, ever since I could read and make sense of things.

Wait, let me tell you the truth. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to BE Batman. So it wasn’t just a fictional character, this was a real deal.

keep-calm-and-always-be-batman-2I could relate to Batman, if I really wanted it bad enough I could be Batman, and I think that’s why I was so obsessed and motivated by Batman is because Batman was is real, he is one of the only few super heroes with no super powers or whatsoever. Unless you consider money, which is the biggest real world super power. Well not really.

Batman wasn’t born a super hero, he made himself one.

“A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.”

– Batman (The Dark Knight Rises)

Anyone can be Batman, you just have to want it bad enough, you can choose to be your version of Batman.

Batman had to earn everything he had. I loved thinking like this. It made even the impossible, possible. They aren’t just the best stories in the world. They aren’t just stories. They are life lessons. Legends.

Speaking on this subject, let me introduce you to this project, a documentary about you, the fans. Experiences about bat-fans from many walks of life, and how Batman has had an impact on our lives. A must know for every bat-fan. Legends of the Knight. Spread the word and be a part of it!
