Amitabh Bachchan’s thoughtful post will fill your weekend with positivity
Ever since the coronavirus lockdown, if there’s one celebrity who has been giving us all the positive vibes, it’s none other than Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Counted amongst one of the most active actors on social media, Big B has been sharing posts on both Instagram and Twitter which include throwback photos, popular quotes, life lessons, poems from his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan, etc. Yet again, in order to increase everyone’s motivation to deal with the negative thoughts after the shocking demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Don actor shared a piece of advice that will calm your mind and fill your day with a good feeling.
The 77-year-old shared a photo of himself with a filter and wrote alongside on Twitter, “shshss .. when the noise all about thee is quiet .. savour it, allow it to breathe , give it the space in the room ..”
Have a look at his post here:
The similar post was shared on Instagram with yet another lesson from his father in Hindi that read, “मन का हो तो अच्छा ; मन का ना हो तो ज़्यादा अच्छा “
बाबूजी ने जब मुझे मेरे जीवन के एक विचलित मोड़ पर ये सिखाया , तो समझ में नहीं आया । जो मन का ना हो वो ज़्यादा अच्छा कैसे हो सकता है । फिर जब उन्होंने समझाया तो समझ गया । ‘अगर तुम्हारे मन का नहीं हो रहा है , तो वो ईश्वर के मन का हो रहा है , और ईश्वर हमेशा , तुम्हारा अच्छा ही चाहेगा , इस लिए ज़्यादा अच्छा !”
This translates to, “Good if it is as per your will; Better if it is not as per your will’. I didn’t understand when Babuji taught me this at a distracted turn of my life. How can it be better if it is not as per our will! When he explained, I understood. ‘If it is not as per your will, then it is God’s will, and God will always want your good, so it’s better.”
He recently expressed his condolence over the death of ‘Chhichhore’ actor and wrote about his sheer brilliance in his work. Big B, along with a photo with the late actor wrote, “Why .. Why .. Why .. Why .. Sushant Singh Rajput .. why do you end your life .. your brilliant talent .. your brilliant mind .. laid to rest , without asking , seeking .. why .. .. his work was sheer brilliance .. and his mind even more .. many a time did he express himself in the depth of philosophical verb .. they that looked passed it were either in wonder or oblivious of its strength of meaning .. some wondered, some quibbled .. to some it was a subdued mirth .. subdued because , for it to be given lethargic ignorance, would have opened the caves of their own .. .. his speak was measured .. as was his screen presence .. ..”

Why .. Why .. Why .. Why .. Sushant Singh Rajput .. why do you end your life .. your brilliant talent .. your brilliant mind .. laid to rest , without asking , seeking .. why .. .. his work was sheer brilliance .. and his mind even more .. many a time did he express himself in the depth of philosophical verb .. they that looked passed it were either in wonder or oblivious of its strength of meaning .. some wondered, some quibbled .. to some it was a subdued mirth .. subdued because , for it to be given lethargic ignorance, would have opened the caves of their own .. .. his speak was measured .. as was his screen presence .. .. I saw a complete work of his in ‘DHONI’ .. the film was dressed with remarkable moments of his performance .. but three of the moments ever remained with me as an observer .. they were done with such casual conviction that it would be difficult for an analyst of some credibility, to either notice it , or give attention to its bearing .. .. when he spoke or communicated , there was something of an inner value, which had remained unsaid , yet said in its covered all .. its a trait of excessive intelligence .. and when that takes a diversion from the highway , it invariably ends up against a road bloc – depressive , unwanted , and in belligerent frustration .. .. on one of my meetings with him , I asked him how did he manage to give that iconic shot of Dhoni hitting a six winning the International tournament , to absolute perfection .. he said he saw that video of Dhoni , a hundred times .. !! .. that was the severity of his professional effort .. .. he came from humble beginnings .. was a part of the 4rth line group dancers, that performed shows with Shiamak Davar , the ingenious talented choreographer of our times .. rising from those climes to where he was, is a story by itself .. excessiveness can often lead to extremes .. .. what kind of a mind leads one to suicide is an eternal mystery .. .. to end a most gainful life, is simply not permitted ..
