Resolve or dissolve

"You can be anything you want. Even Superman."

Atul started hating this line and even Superman. According to him 'Superman is dead now, and he also want to die because thats the only way he has left with'.

Sitting under a silent dark sky with thoughts spinning into his head.He was just peeping inside his past . How happy he was and how jolly kind of nature he had , just a year back. 'Life is a bitch' and he had realized it in very short time span . He has always heard our entire life flashes in front of our eyes the second before we die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time. Exact one years back ,Atul was awarded by 'Best employee' of his company and it was this day , he met Reena for the first time. She was enjoying party with her friends in the same hotel where Atul's management was patting his back . It was love at first sight . Then the love story started , with each day long night calls and celebrating weekends. Suddenly Atul realized that he had to finish off his official stuff so he started late night shifts in office, spending weekends in office . He thought that after this project , he would purpose Reena for marriage. But it went longer than expected , it took him more than three months to pack up his work. By that time, Reena had adopted herself to live with his absence . Atul came to know this when he proposed her and she , without any hesitations, declined his offer. Atul was shattered and he dumped his body with alcohol and other narcotics for few days. No internet, no phone calls, no friends, no life . He closed himself in a room and kept staring the walls . He , then realized that its been 9 days he had been in office. He took a shower and had his breakfast . As he reached office , his batch was not working . He went to security check and he came to know recession had affected his life too. What ever he used to read in the news paper or in magazines had become a part of him .

He came home and slept for a while .

 Now he is thinking of superman, about reena , about his family , about green grass with his bleeding hand.Life is flashing like splash of water. 

In his diary , he is writing these as his final words "I don't know if there is god or not but i have a firm belief . If there is a God , HE must be following ISLAM. Because HE always enjoying killing us slowly and steadily . Since I am being fired out by all relationships, and God is still not ready to fire me from this life, let me quit "

Question : I dont know . Make it up and answer :-)

  1. The lines "Life flashes ..." are taken from the movie American beauty.

    LINK :

    "I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time... For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars... And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined my street... Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper... And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new Firebird... And Janie... And Janie... And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday."

  2. There is no question, and then again there is only question, there is no answer....we all live in a make-believe life...whatever we belief it takes the shape...we believe its our dream that we are leaving, just to maintain sanity...but who knows the very purpose of whose theater are we playing what roles??
