''The desire is not to push Hindi down anyone's throat. It is but a compliance of a desire expressed by some readers. If I am conversant with the language and there are those among you that wish for me to express in Hindi, all I am saying is it shall be done. Not at the cost of losing the spirit of the blog, but as an added attraction, hopefully,'' Mr Bachchan wrote. He said there will be replication, of course in order to maintain a sense of fairness. Content will remain the same both ways, the thespian added.
On his recovery from his illness, that bogged him down on his 66th birthday on October 11, the actor said, ''Weakness repairs rapidly. Some semblance of strength reappears and the blood rushes into areas it had not for several days! There is much to learn and gather in this limited life. Knowledge is endless. It grows deeper with each passing day. And every day of absence from it increases the frustration of having missed something out. We must make a beginning, even if it is small.
A drop at a time shall fill a bucket, a river, an ocean.'' Amitabh greeted his fans and well-wishers on the occasion of Diwali. ''Mankind has invented so many rituals - religious, divine, weather driven, socially and morally essential, so pertinent in the evolution of ourselves as humans. We all honour them to this day and date,'' he said, adding Dhanyalaxmi, Dhairyalaxmi, Shouryalaxmi, Vidyalaxmi, Karyalaxmi, Vijaylaxmi and Rajlaxmi--may these asthlaxmis' shower their blessings on all on the occasion.
