Amitabh Bachchan celebrated his seventy first birthday and during a media interaction revealed his plan of providing solar electricity to 3000 homes across rural India with solar power systems in 28 states.
As per sources, Big B said, “We have been doing a lot of charity work under my father’s trust, this will be one of them. The electricity will be provided free of cost to all identified beneficiaries.”
Regarding his birthday he wrote down on his blog, “A strange calmness descends on the eve of the clock that strikes 12 midnight.. The family, few that are in town, bring in the greetings, the ‘little one’ ably tutored sings a ‘happy birthday’ to herself first, and then, after suitable prompting, to me… it’s these little moments that make up a birthday.”
Well sir truly a great idea to light up many homes with such a precious gift this ‘Diwali’ .
