Dear student,

Such questions are made for enhancing the self creative skills and should be tried answering on your own. However, here are a few points that will help you in framing your answer:

  • Teenagers are not justified in their act of blindly worshipping any hero.
  • They often tend to forget the difference between reality and fantasy.
  • Nowadays, it is a fashion for youngsters to indulge in 'Hero worship' teenagers feel that it is a must to have an ideal and start worshipping him.
  • In fact, hero worshipping turns into madness many times leading the youngster to destruction and depression.
  • If you really admire someone, then you should also look at the shortcomings of that person and not follow him blindly.
  • You should analyse the behaviour pattern of your ideal and act accordingly.
  • Hero worship should lead you to something good in life and not to bad habits.
