Jamal was well known at St. Xavier's College of Arts, not just for his striking good looks but also for his exceptional talent in theatre. He was the life of the college, always at the center of all activities and festivals.
This year, Jamal was in charge of the annual college festival. The theme was 'Wild West', and Jamal was more excited than ever. He and his best friend, Abrar, decided to rent cowboy costumes to get into the spirit. Jamal even trimmed his beard to fit the cowboy character perfectly.
The day of the festival finally arrived. The college was buzzing with energy, excitement, and anticipation. Jamal, dressed in his cowboy outfit, was the star of the day. Everywhere he went, people stopped and admired him. His charm was intoxicating, and his charisma was undeniable.
Abrar watched as Jamal basked in the attention and admiration. He felt a twinge of jealousy. He wanted some of the attention too. In a fit of envy, Abrar called the police, falsely accusing Jamal of not believing in God.
The police arrived, expecting to find a blasphemer. Jamal, however, was unfazed. He welcomed them with a wide smile and easily convinced them of his innocence. The officers, charmed by Jamal's charisma, left only to return with another man who they accused instead. Jamal had again diverted attention and trouble from himself.
Later in the evening, Jamal was chatting with the audience members when he met Ranjha, a lively young man who matched his energy and enthusiasm. They created a scenario where Jamal drew a curtain over the stage, blocking everyone else out and allowing only applause and attention to come his way.
As the festival progressed, a musical timelapse started playing, showcasing all the preparation and excitement leading up to the event. It was magical. Jamal felt like he was on top of the world, enjoying the best time of his life.
However, all good things must come to an end. As the night drew to a close, Jamal, exhausted from the day's excitement, fell asleep in front of the audience. When he woke up, he found himself surrounded by angry, jealous college students. He had hogged the limelight for too long, and now his peers were resentful.
But Jamal wasn't deterred. He had hosted the festival of a lifetime, and no amount of jealousy could take that away from him. He had shown everyone that he was not just a popular face, but also a capable leader. And most importantly, he had learned a valuable lesson - fame and popularity come with their share of challenges, and one must be prepared to face them.
