The Phantom – The Ghost who walks

I am dearly fond of comics, like most of us are. I inherited a vast collection of Indrajaal comics from my Father @ the age of 7. since then, Phantom has profoundly shaped up my childhood in myriad ways. I am still influenced deeply with the enigmatic personality of Phantom.

When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.

These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real.

And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could.

They may; As it’s said, Seeing is Believing. And Believing is making things happen. 🙂
