DH LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I totally agree with this message. This message is not just for models but also for many girls who lead a footloose lifestyle or trying to lead such a life thinking it's the trend. Girls should wake up and realize that they are messing up their own lives. Parents also are equally responsible for their children's lives, they should keep track of the kind of people they mix with.
I've seen shocking postings on social networks like Orkut and Facebook. They just share messages with strangers without care. For them having many friends and 100s of scarps on their profiles is a kind of status symbol. They do not even pause to think 'what if someone misuses the information'. Utterly immature behavior.
Here's the transcription of the letter...
Sir, Of late cases of suicides are on the rise-involving young girls, most of them celebreties. In most of teh cases the parents are totally unaware of goings on in their children's life.
The recent case of Viveka Babjee is a glaring example of the craze for celebrity lifestyle. It is a sad fact that no matter how liberated men are, they do not settle down with such girls. They are friends just for their flings. Once their carnal desires are satisfied, they move over to greener pastures. Thay also dupe them by false assurances of marriage and conviniently back out. In most of the cases, the men do not match the fame and celebrity status of the models.
The models are under the misconception that because of their fancy, footloose and fast lives theya re independent - which they so blatantly flaunt. But independence from what?
The so called independence is fraught with dangers. A model is under pressure to maintain celebrity lifestyle, which entails keeping the body svelte and in top condition. As nature takes it's toll, the end is all too inevitable. Such incidents should be a wake-up call for young girls that this kind of lifestyle is not a bed of roses but a mirage.
