Trakariwali of Nepal and her way to fame

Kusum Shrestha Tarkariwali

Chaiwala -Arshad Khan
Social Media is creating various options of Viral popularity where people are getting attention and their share of acknowledgment. In one or the other form, the use of social media is helping reach the millions whereas on the other it's also making people believe in their dreams.

Few months back,  Arshad Khan of Pakistan amazed the world with his looks. The viral image took Arshad Khan to the fame of chaiwala. The blue eyed chaiwala famed the world of modeling instantly after his photo went viral.

Similarly, in Nepal  Kusum's candid angle picture centered the world to innocence and harwork of a common woman in Nepal. Within seconds the picture went viral and kusum an ordinary girl of fishling was known to the world as Tarkariwali.

Call it her luck or fortune, she garbed the attention of millions in the innocence and hardwork . One thing we all have to understand is the fame of life is very limited to the how we live it. Kusum needs to understand that one photogenic picture is not going to make her life good. She has to make this opportunity the best where she can use her skills and further make it worth.

There are examples in the world where people have been crazed to fame with one photograph and today the same photograph is the issue of life and death. People rise to glory at the same time many of them even vanish.

Afghan Girl -The Image of Sharbat Gula that featured in the
National geographic of 1987 
In this history of fame, one name that I have to mention is the name of Sharbat Gula, the "Afghan Girl" who was famed to the world in the 80's but today her same fame has put her in bars. Currently, Sharbat is in jail of Pakistan where she was arrested for acquiring an illegal citizenship. She was a war victim who has refugeed under the Pakistan territory but in 2013 her identity was revealed to the world.

Social media can be a powerful tool of communication and networking but it depends upon how you use it. If you use it as for information, communication and networking it works best for benefits but if you try to exploits it in terms of  getting bad publicity or popularity it can backfire you creating a more vulnerable situation.
