Extra Hero!

Monday, June 16, 2008
Someone asked me,
"Tu khudko extra hero samajhta hai kya?"
"So you think you are extra hero huh?"

I was damn confused by this question. What was the chap trying to ask me?

A hero , I can understand. He's the main character, the central theme, the centre of attention, the doer of the impossible, he saves the day, saves the world, lives happily ever after, and thanks to him everybody lives happily ever after.

An extra. That too I can understand. He's the insignificant little thing floating here and there. Providing shape to the 'attention' at whose centre the hero is. Its impossible that he ever does anything. He is the a part of the clutter, 'the world' that hero is supposed to save. And by deeds of the hero, he's supposed to live happily ever after (though we will never know the truth).

But what the heck is an Extra Hero??????

I will go totally on the PJ trail for you on this one...

A hero is a sandwich here in the US that is similar to the one you get in a subway - but this one is made in local food stores

@ceedy
Yes the person should realise I am an extra hero with extra cheese when I give such a cheesy reply.

@urv
//Hero Hara-laal ban gaya

One of the very few posts where you've allowed your more conventional literary skills to show! Loved it. Did I just sense a bit of irritation in that cheesy reply?
