Fans and fanatics are human beings, people with feelings, thoughts and a life. In my view, whether they are a fan or a fanatic entirely depends on those very same feelings, thoughts and life. A fan has a more rounded view whereas a fan has a blinkered, focused view.

What makes them that way? I may be simplifying it a bit when I say, their sense of self and their life makes them that way. For me, a fanatic is seriously compensating...something is missing so drastically from their sense of self, from their lives that they latch onto whatever makes them feel better and makes them feel like they have a life.

If those of us that call ourselves fans can be so deeply impacted by IPK, the fanatics don't stand a chance do they?

Ha! True that. My room mate is this close to declaring me insane for spending the better part of my evenings on this forum. I guess the question is to declare the *more* insane. But hey who am I to judge, I am crazy enough to make this post. LOL

One man's crazy is another man's brave!!!! LOL

I rue the day I came across IPK...I always knew I had obsessivetendenciesbut I thought they were limited to food and drink!! Embarrassed

There seems to be an move to rebel against the crazies on this Forum at the moment...have you seen Napstermonster's post?

I did read that post but IPK Fanfiction is not RC's forte. So couldn't really judge the reactions. But in any case those kind of reactions are clear examples of how far crazy can go.

A very important factor to consider when debating this topic is to consider the various age groups in this forum. There is a possibility that those who are younger tend to become very attached to an actor/actress which might border on obsession.

When was in my teens, I drooled over a certain actor. But 5 years later I couldn't believe that I had done that over an actor whose acting is not that great. But I still do have a soft corner for that feeling though my brain tells me otherwise. This happens to everyone in every generation. When my grandmother obsessed over Dilip Kumar, she would get angry at my mother who thought he was overacting. Similarly my sister and I got blastings from mom when we called Jackie Shroff an oldie. And in those days the spats were in the house because we didn't have a forum to express our thoughts.

As we grow older we might grow out of so many things which we used to obsess about, mellow down and become more mature.

But when you are young you are generally excited over a lot of things. This is the age where you sit in a class room and giggle over lectures trying to derive double meaning over everything. This is the age when you the most idealistic, passionate, reactive, expressive, rebellious, etc.

So being a fanatic or a fan according to me is about where you are at a point of time in life.

@TM: A very interesting topic you have brought up. 

It was very interesting to read everyone's views. 

A fan to me is someone who can appreciate yet criticize something they like. They can admire & praise the good while criticize & complain for the bad. 

@Charlotte74: I must admit that your reply was very thought provoking!

there would have been a time  in a not so distant past...where i would say watching a telly show tat too online and then logging on to a forum to argue the toss and take it apart.. for hours on end...was fanatical..that too...a show that is ermmm leaves alot to be desired...
but here I am and now such judgements would be self defecating would it not...
its a whole different world out here and folks from diff walks of life..and at diff to be judging someone...very young who goes all scream when a more than average looking man is given a very manly aura...or a person who sees virtues that are not visible to  my eye would make me less than the person i aim to be...
so yes while i dont understand the gushing or the OMG's...and have never beeen one to fall over myself over someone i very hightly regard or am taken with even in my teen years...i am learning to be tolerant and not brand anyone by my perceptions of thier behaviour...
oops meant to edit myself ...but i am quoting ...never mind just add to your trp ...(non legitimate...but who am i to fight the norm)...
any reason why Rockerchick speaks in the 3rd person...
(oof its catchy)

A much needed post, especially when THE one thing becomes the centrifugal force in your life, starts high jacking your normal thought patterns and corrupts it with just manifesting itself all over your mind,  blurring away the other REAL aspects of life.  And each time you happen to get a little away from it ..the force acting on you gets you back to the 'rhythm of madness'.

I have not made many posts here, but I couldn't resist this topic, as it is according to me it's the need of the hour. And I am very happy to note in all this insanity...sanity seems to coexist...

Liking a show is fine, loving the lead character is fine, also having a likinging -ness towards the real actors is fine and then the scenario changes here - going a step further in today's boundary-less techy world.. following a show, liking,  discussing, analaysing, friendly banters, meeting like - minded people, getting you the Indian connect, writing fan fiction, making sleek VM's  is all what today's social networking sites makes it possible for you -  express yourself -  to put it simply - CREATIVE, CONNECT , FUN.  And till this level you could possibly call yourself  a FAN.But as all things has its PROS AND THE CONS and too much of anything is detrimental to one's health,or  be it the mind, body or the spirit !!!! 

All the problem starts with any kind of obsession -from mild to have already entered the territory of Fanaticism -knowingly or unknowingly .any form of fanaticism is harmful whether for self (like spending too much time itself) or targeting others..then THE thing start's driving you

Mild to Wildest  

When you spend unearthly hours making and reading posts, watching repeat videos of the show, prioritizing this show over many other pressing matters or the daily routine itself, start mincing each and every track, dissecting each and every move of the lead actors, slamming the support ones, calling names, sending hate mails, using abusive language, call writers , CVs, PH names, stating this soap should never end, start comparing your prospective husband and existing ones to Arnav and Barun !!!???? Comparing  the lead actors' with real life partners is all treading into sickness zone.I love Rabave between the lead but I am unable to  understand the fanatic frenzy when a adorable male actor goes shirtless???  What is it ? I thought men and women were from different planets..

Are we not here just too SMITTEN ( to the power of infinity) with our own PERCEPTION!!! What is the reality here ???!!!!!! I am not here for one instant questioning about how good Sanaya or Barun as a human being really are ??? But I what I want to point out here is our 'pure perception' something that exists only in our 'minds'..based on only what we have been told and shown selectively..not is all a mind game !!!!  Our mind is attracted to the fantasy that we have imagined for ourselves and the hook here is IPKKND!!!

But I am sure even the creators of the hook are not only just laughing mad on us with our afflicted 'irrational behaviour' but  we are also terribly 'scaring' them mad with our 'raging' discussions and many-er  times acid tongued harsh feedbacks lashed at the writers , creatives, directors, production house!!!!! And this 'scaring' can be influencing even on them  too , including the lead actors...especially when you are micro detailing their moves and chemistry (assuming they are keeping a tab of every move of ours)' .Also one has to understand that  it's  not a FILM which usually has a shorter shelf life, proclaimed hit or fail and done with in a SOAP we are talking about day in and day out programming, stretching the successful one's into yeas , the incredulous time spent on it.. to give our daily fix ..for both the creators, actors and the slowly starts (or atleast has the potential to) working on our systems and minds...but I guess the maturity and the onus really lies on us whether to make it a nice refreshing Cuppa of Coffee or  daily shot of Heroin.!!! Then that's called dangerous living! Whatever we do - the choice is 'ours' and that affects , impacts you and others in this ecosystem..!!!

P.S:  Views expressed are just my own, we all have a right to have our views and face the consequences !!!
