Rohan asked his 5-year old son Aarav who was super excited to watch a movie, “which movie you want to watch?”
Aarav replied, “Daddy, Spiderman.”
Rohan said, “Ok son, get ready!”
Aarav then asked in a curious tone, “Before that, Daddy tell me, what does a superhero do?”
Rohan explained, “Well, aside from helping down cats stuck in trees and charging into epic battles with super villains hell-bent on destroying the planet, the essence of every superhero’s job is to protect you against dangers and keep you safe. It is to make your life easier by offering the unspoken but truthful assurance that no matter what happens, someone’s got your back. Most importantly, it is to actually have your back when something wrong does happen.”
Aarav then asked, “So he will protect you too?”
Hearing this Rohan was taken aback for a while and discussed this with his wife Priya.
Priya understood the situation and then said, “You have your superhero, Rohan.”
Let me explain,
Unfortunately, the laws of reality make it impossible for a superhero like that to exist. There’s one individual who possesses the miraculous ability to solve your problems and complete every task on your to-do list. Before you start thinking about your parents or spouse or best friend, the answer is you!
Every day, you find solutions to a variety of obstacles, both big and small. You provide for your family and take care of them to the best of your ability, often sacrificing your own needs to fulfil their needs. If you are walking down the street and notice someone asking for help, you rush to their aid. If you’re wondering exactly how any of that makes you a superhero, well, it doesn’t. There is one chief ingredient missing from the recipe protection. We all know how fragile and unpredictable life is, and since you don’t have the ability to go back in time or predict the future, you are still vulnerable to your own mortality. However, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Just as you can learn any skill in the world or book an appointment with your dentist at the click of a button online, you can insure your precious life online as well. It’s really that easy.
A large part of the population is intimidated by the prospect of buying insurance because it seems like a complicated procedure, but with our lives increasingly moving online, that no longer is an issue. Buying insurance online is fast, convenient and costs you lesser. You can compare numerous plans side-by-side and weigh the pros and cons of each before making a decision. The point is, if you don’t rely on others to perform simple tasks like shopping and ordering food then why rely on others while planning the safety and security of your loved ones? The responsibility of your life and what happens after lies in your own hands. That’s when you will truly be your own superhero!
Rohan is now free from all worries as he has now understood that he has to opt for a term plan which will take care of his family even in his absence like a super hero.
