NaPoWriMo 2013 (# 3): The show must go on!

Smiling away in mock gaiety,
springing vibrant colors,
enlivening the celluloid..
entertaining with variety..
Raised on a pedestal
With admirers feasting 
on every intimate detail…
Does privacy ever prevail?
A conduct even slightly wrong..
invites an  ire so strong…
Their fascination, in a moment
people forget…
targeting them , the next minute
with choicest epithet!!
Their stardom worshiped
with so great an ardor
But forgotten no sooner
than waning of glamour!
forever…
Hiding away the hurt pride and   pain 
behind the mask of the grease-paint
Smiling away in mock gaiety,
they carry on…
Because the show must go on..!!
 
 
 

I wrote this poem a month back and it was not in a presentable shape but I have tried to put it in readable form today for this NaPoWriMo challenge. Indians are in the habit of literally worshiping the film actors. The media splashes the minutest detail of their day to day life in print which the public greedily laps up. If the news is favorable people go gaga but smallest of odd behavior doesn’t stop people to spread slander. At times I pity these celebrities whose each action is under the scrutiny of the public eye. This is my version of their sweet-sad success!
