Being An Indian Superhero

If I were the Indian Superman
I would be wary of taking off
From our Indian roads..
Imagine taking flight and looking down
Only to see the roads cave in
And birth potholes in loads..
If I were the Indian Batman
I would go night-patrolling on a bike
And avoid my bat mobile..
Imagine being stuck in a traffic jam
As all the bikes swerve past you
And you remain immobile?
If I were the Indian Spiderman
I would be wary of firing my spider-web
And swinging off building walls..
Imagine old wall plasters and cheap cement
Trying to support my sprightly swings
There is bound to be a few surprise falls..
If I were the Indian Hulk
I would be wary of the vegetarian crowd
Also maybe a few Hindu groups..
Imagine turning into a raging green monster
Only to be advertised as a vegetarian hero
And an incarnation who shrinks and blows up..
If I were the Indian Wonder Woman
I would be wary of the talk shows
That comment on a women’s dress code..
Imagine fighting anti-social elements
Only to become the topic of a debate
As to if my dress flowed or showed..
