Anyone Can Be Batman!

The Batman we all know is the protector of Gotham city against goons or villains who wish to bring harm to the city by means of destruction using arms and weapons. Therefore, to beat them Batman needs to be equipped with the latest technology and gadgets such as Batmobile, Batpod, Grapple gun, Batarangs, ultrasound generator. Batman is a feeling. Batman resides within us all. Each individual person who battles everyday challenges is Batman on his own level. I would like to say that my Dad is a Batman. He is the protector of our family and assumes various roles depending on the situation. The President or the Prime Minister of any country can be Batman.

Here are some virtues which define Batman:

  1. FACE YOUR FEARS AND PUT IN THE REQUIRED HARD WORK TO CONQUER THEM

The movie shows Bruce Wayne having lost his parents. The movie also shows him being afraid of Bats. The movie goes on to show that how Bruce Wayne instead of running away from the fears,  faces them and goes on to be Batman.

  1. NEVER BACK DOWN WHEN YOU HAVE FAILED OR LOST. ALWAYS CHOOSE TO RISE.

There may be times in our lives when things don’t go as planned, or sometimes we have a bad experience. Most people get depressed and feel that this is the end of their lives and they won’t be able to get back up again. But BATMAN taught me that whenever you fall, you get back up again.

In the movie, we see that Batman is put into jail by his enemy. There is no way out of the jail except one opening at the top. To get out Batman must climb a huge wall which is almost an impossible task. But Batman tries his very best, practices hard and after some attempts gets himself out of the jail. This shows the “Never Back Down Attitude”.

  1. HAVE MORALS AND VALUES WHICH YOU WILL FOLLOW AT ANY COST

In the movie many times Batman has to choose between things. For example, there is a scene where Batman is chasing the Joker and after some time the Joker has an accident, the Batman is driving The Batpod and he has the chance to kill Joker. The Joker provokes him to do it but Batman doesn’t kill him. This happens in many situations, many of them being really tough choices. But Batman has his set of morals which forbid him to kill anyone. He follows them to any extent.

Sometimes in Life, we may have temptations to do something wrong which will harm us as well as others. Here we have a choice, either to do the wrong thing or to stick to our values and morals. By following our values we feel proud of ourselves.

I personally have a set of values and morals and I follow them no matter what.

In the movie Batman vs Superman, Batman goes on to fight with Superman who almost has godlike powers and features.

But Batman finds an amazing solution for this problem. This goes on to say that however big your problem is there is always a solution.

So, according to me anyone can be Batman. It’s not about the technology he uses, it’s about who he is. I would like to quote from the movie “It’s not who you are, It’s what you do that defines you”.

Gratitude

 

‘Gratitude’ is defined as ‘ The Quality of being Thankful’. Sounds very simple, doesn’t it? Well, let me tell you, this is a very powerful word which we hardly use in our everyday life. Expressing your gratitude towards something or someone can do miracles in your life. And I am saying this from various experiences that I have had in the past.

I have come to know that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. One may ask, How? There can be various answers to this question as it may vary from person to person. Here is one simple exercise that I follow every day when I get up and you guys can try it too!

As soon as I get up from the bed I thank god for the wonderful day,  and that I am privileged to be born as a human. Do you guys know that the probability of being a human in this universe is One in 400 Trillion? That’s pretty Lucky!

As I go around brushing my teeth I thank god for my parents, my friends, a good life and for every little thing in my life. As the day progresses I try to show gratitude to every person I meet. Saying a simple ‘Thank You’ to your cab driver can put a smile on his face. And that feeling that you experience is priceless.

So my fellow bloggers and readers, just try expressing gratitude more frequently and you will see amazing differences in your life.
