“I give my gratitude and thanks for taking the trouble to show your affection and love. Words shall always fail me when I shall be asked to describe this phenomena, but all that one can say is that I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity of so much love and affection from others. It is the greatest debt that I shall carry to my grave and one that I shall never be able to pay back," he wrote.
Like wine, he seems to get stronger with every passing year, and the media too want more and more of him. “Many of the electronic had structured special programs and bulletins on my career. The many important papers had full front page tributes to me and the first print add., for 'PAA".

Friends and relatives called in and 1207 sms"s jammed the mobile," he blogged.
He apologised for not being able to respond to everyone who wished him on his birthday. He also thanked for God for the give of his parents and his life. “Give me the strength, my Lord. Give me the power of work. Give me resilience and divine intervention and then allow me to come over and shake the hands that have waved at me for so long," concluded Amitabh with this prayer.
