Living a vicarious life.

I was not shocked but a feeling of disgust did show up when I entered the room of one of my old students. The walls on all the three sides were covered with a few cine stars that her mom would be embarrassed to look at. Certainly, it won't make her mother to be proud of her daughter.

I wonder why people are so obsessed with celebrities? Why can't they admire and become a fan of respected leaders or scientists or poets? Surely, there are no dearth of them.

Do these people live that life through the celebrity?
Are they ready to undergo all the pains that their heroes and heroines have suffered to reach the stardom?

Living a vicarious life is such a waste of time.
