There is a time in our lives when most of us believe our fathers to be superheroes. On an hurtful day, one realises that he is also a mortal; but, that craving for a superhero never fades away.

He became Batman and called Ayaan, in a low-gruff tone. As Batman, he told him that Ayaan can be even better than Iron Man. The only thing Ayaan will have to do is be brave and good and stay away from junk food. The little kid was up on the clouds and was ecstatic.

About Rit Chattapadhyay

A student of literature, I was born in Kolkata, now, reside at Howrah. I completed my high school from St.Thomas' Church School Howrah,and then went on to study English Honours at Asutosh College. Presently, I am pursuing my Masters in English Literature from Calcutta University. Not an avid reader from childhood. My experience with literature intensified in high school and Asutosh College. I love reading works of literature and I am an amateur poet myself. My poems mainly highlight the agonies of modern existence and the complications of love. Being a very opinionated person, I bear distinct opinions about what I read.
