Believe you in me when I say that he had a trunk-full of comics, of all the superheroes, especially Superman. He was a nice kid and my best friend, and of course, he shared his comics with me, and even allowed me to borrow them. Yet, I was not fully satisfied. I not only wanted to read them, I wanted to own them. My own. My precious. That would not happen.
Now, years later, I am fulfilling my superhero dreams, via different medium. I have seen and own all the superhero movies that came in the recent years and, since I moved to Delhi, I am living this second childhood through these superhero t-shirts. I buy them not just to wear, but to own them, as a compensation for not being able to own my own comics all those years ago.
