We have always envisaged ourselves as prince or princesses through out our childhood and once entered in to teenage imagined ourselves in the shoes of the idols whom we adore so this fantasy has always been there in us and will also continue to be. Since our childhood many things such as a barbie doll to the present spider man and super man have always ruled our minds .

We find the roles in plays and movies so better than our own lives that we crave to be them somewhere in our lives have those magical powers to reed someones mind,play a trick of magic etc.Also the roles in these novels are so so strong for ex: Sherlock Holmes is such a good detective that this role can have a great influence on young minds and teach them that cheating,telling lies are always wrong and instill some good thoughts in them. hence these things even not real they teach some good to everyone.

As a coin has two sides even storie fiction has its own good and bad .Parents or the caretakers should always know what is the limit for these kind of things so that these fantasies do not result into something grave because there have been incidents where children so mesmerized by these character flew in to the air and resulted in their death.

Hence we all should adore ,get inspired by these plays and movies that we have to take positives in them and leave out the negative and make our lives better.
