Would You Rather Have Money or Fame?

Written By Laksshha Khanna (Grade 10)

What screams luxurious and relaxing more than a Hammam spa? The feel of expensive oil being massaged onto your skin is unparallel. The ooze of flavour rolling on your tongue as you indulge in state-of-the-art Michelin star food. The feeling of gratitude that sinks in every time you open your loaded wallet is immaculate.  Wouldn’t you pick money over fame?

At quite a young age, I was determined to earn well. Why, you may ask? The answer is simple, I want to lead a grandeur life. 

Money: it has the same meaning in every language and in every land. It means the same to everyone. Money is respected, money buys you luxury and money helps you live the life you always dreamed of. 

I strongly believe that despite everything, money stays but fame is fleeting. Money will always be there for you regardless of whether you are the most followed Instagram celebrity or not. The virtual world is quite temperamental, you may be the most trending thing one week and get cancelled the next. Social media culture gets quite toxic for your mental health. I wouldn’t like cameras following me everywhere and selling my privacy for other things. Having fame doesn’t always mean having money. I would rather live a quiet luxurious life on my private island in the Indian Ocean. 

Money ensures security and the ability to cater to your needs. It helps you destress by letting you indulge in the riches it provides. 

To draw a conclusion, I would always choose money over fame.
