The beautiful silver sky may have lightining in their womb form. I don't see the problem as being celebrities but I do appose to estimation of them as role models.

Why do we idolize celebrities? Yes I agree admire them for what they have accomplished and for their careers in general but it isn't necessary to idolize them anymore. As they are not as smart, good, worthwhile, or important as the media makes them out to be.

It is nothing but just to be with the trend we land up making celebrities our role models. Many of my colleagues carry pictures of celebrities they look up to them and treat them as gods. What they forget is that celebrities have no power whatsoever. The power belongs to the viewer. if you stop watching them they will disappear.Dont confuse the actor with the role.Far beaming with broad smiles may enchant you.But do you think it is right to hand them over your destiny?

Celebrities actually flatter.Just to get appreciation for themselves and to get their work done. Most of the time they do things out of compitiveness and jealousy. They participate in fund raising rallies just to get fame for themselves. And if we follow their footsteps we to will also learn the same.

As said ‘All that glitters is not gold'.This applies to the celebrities as here are few examples. Shah Rukh Khan takes a crore to for just an appearance in a party. Salman Khan has been charged for poaching a protected deer.Mh.Azharuddin. has been charged for match fixing. Is this our future plan.

Now I will like to ask you ‘Do you still think they are worth to be our role models?' Celebrities appear to be smiling personalities but actually they are all masked.Wash their faces off and you will find that they are just a figure to fancy.They are at the end just money minded and craving for fame.They dont care a bit for the wealth of the nation. So my dear friends dont be blind and built a world of make believe and illusions. We should judge our role models by their intrinsic qualities and not by their outward appearance as appearances are very often deceptive.

If you are looking for a role model then why are those who are truly worthwhile faded in the background?

I personally feel that a role model is someone who gives up their own time, attention and money to help others. And they are the ones who deserve all the attention.

If you really want a positive role model then look at an ant farm. I repeat if you really want a positive role model then look at an ant farm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
