5 ways to get fame in India

I was inspired to write this post after I found out that there are many people like me who didn't want to lead a normal life. This revelation came after I told my friends and relatives that I had a software, Kundli, and it gave very accurate results on personality and future. To my amazement, I was shocked at the same time happy that almost all, asked me the same question; Fame Hai ? (Will I be famous).

After watching the first episode of Indian Idol 4 , I realized that probably getting fame now is easy. So I have come with a five point theory that will lead you to fame. (Caution : Fame could be injurious)

I cannot guarantee the results, but these are tried and tested methods by few Indians who became famous.

I'll start with the easiest.

5. Do something crazy/ weird/different

Crazy stuff could attract a lot of media attention. I can say that because once when I was on my way to college, at the bus stop I saw a man running naked (Actually naked) with a couple of other people, including women. In the evening I saw him on the local news channel making some big statements. This is not the best thing to do. To yourself and others. Imagine,morning 7 o clock, watching a man naked, your day does not go too well. You can try out some other crazy stuff. You can also do something different, something good, like help the less privileged. It would be wrong to club crazy and social work under the same, but both are doing something different. It depends on you to choose a way.

4. Get into a reality Show

The show which is there on your television sets almost 12 months of a year are the reality TV show. You can't miss them. The top channels have their own set of such shows. Be it Star, Zee or Sony. And yes, if you wanna go for something different , MTV is there. The requirements for fame through this media are as follows

Talent 10%
Personality (crazy) 50%
Daring (40%)

And you are there.
Remember, talent only 10%. If you want some more airtime make it 20%

3. Online Maniac

There are some crazy people (Not me) on the internet who post crazy/sensible videos/posts on the internet and become instant online celebs. Let me tell you, the audience is huge and the monetary aspects are very good.

2. Crime

This is the worst way. Don't follow it. It is just there to make the count of my list 5.
If you seen the movie "Kya Kool Hai Hum" , the tushar kapoor movie, you will know what I am trying to say. If you haven't ask someone.

1. Work Hard

Apart from crime, all of the above mentioned factors if done in a good and positive way will give you what you want. Remember to follow your dreams. Sincere and honest efforts will give you success and there are innumerable examples from various spheres to prove this.

My best wishes to all of you who want their name to last through ages.
