This quote shows the cruel reality of the world that how even the death of one person is superior to the other. A person's worth is known by his status rather than the deeds he does for the society. Many great people might not find space in the columns of newspapers while others with silver spoons get all the attention in media. Like many others, I was also not much cognizant of this thing until the sudden demise of Sidharth Shukla on September 2, who succumbed to death after suffering a massive heart attack. Sidharth was a part of a glamorous and wider world. His death created a lot of media-hype. For media houses it was a high time to grab as much TRP as possible by showing the coverage of his heartbroken and inconsolable family and his rumoured girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill. Not only this but also, Sidharth's die-hard fans and every other common man flooded media by pouring in condolences for his family and friends. But, one thing is worth considering here that why the existence of a so-called star becomes so important to that of a common man. Why farmers sitting on roads fighting for their rights and for generations to come don't get as much screen-time as people like Sidharth Shukla do? People called Sidharth "a star gone soon". If we go by the definition of what a star is, we get to know that a star is a celestial body which removes darkness and illuminates others objects around it. No doubt, Sidharth Shukla was a dedicated actor, with powerful dialogue delivery and excellent comic timing still his contribution in the development of society is minor.
All his achievements, his wealth and his success was solely for himself and for his family. It goes without saying that an untimely death of someone is always painful for his family and friends.The sudden departure of a famous personality like him definitely deserves to be covered in media. But the way TV channels have been focusing on just Siddharth's demise is inscrutbale to us. We have got many other sensitive issues that needs to be covered like the issue of three farm laws.we know that farmers feed the whole nation.They toil in the fields and put food in our plates but now their survival is in danger.Now they need media's help to get these three farm laws repealed.Our farmers have been raising their voice against the three farm laws for the last nine months.In the protest,Countless farmers who lost their lives in the pursuit of a better future for upcoming generations, failed to get media's attention.Their more than nine month's toil does not seem to bother anyone. This shows the sorry state of our country where unnecessary things are highlighted in media but real issues like plight of farmers, unemployment, inflation, fallen GDP and corruption remain unaddressed. This also shows people's sick mentality who fail to recognise who the real stars are. Any person bringing positive change in society and raising voice against injustice is as important as these entertainers are. To cut the long story short as T.S Eliot said "in my beginning is my end". All flowers bloom to wither away. It is not about how much material possession one has in his lifetime but how valuable his stay has proved for others in this transitory world.
