Celebrity

Recently I was thinking about my interests when I was a teen. I was a big fan of tamil novels. Especially Rajesh Kumar, Subha and Pattukotai Prabhakar. While I was reading these main stream authors I also used to read Rajendra Kumar and Pushpa Thangathurai. Compared to the earlier three these two will sprinkle in little more erotica in their writing.

At that time all these people were in their top form and they were celebrities. Over the year the latter two were no more there in the field. I can see the celebrity span of these celebrities are limited. I dont know how many of them remembers Pushpa Thangathurai. Only people who were from 70's and 80's still look for his writing that too not actively. Some celebrities will have longer span than others.

There are some who gets written in the history like the kings and artists like Alexander or Da Vinci but others are forgotten after their era. Their names will still be found by people who dig deeper into he area but still their longevity is limited.

Even if we look at MGR who had a huge fan following during his days, I dont know how many will remember MGR as an actor. People who search for his movies has come down and will come down as the people who lived during his days die. He will still be there in history as TNs chief minister though as it is an official record. Like that some might exist only in the history records.

Compared to normal people their longevity might be high but when we look at it from the earth's age everything blurs.

But dinosaurs are real heros they are still remembered after millions of years but still only as species which went extinct. It can happen to all the Kim Kadarshians, Paris Hiltons, Donald Trumps, Michael Jacksons, Rajini Kanths, Kamal Hassans and Ambanis as well. They will only be remembered as human species.
