Amitabh Bachchan, on Sunday, was discharged from the hospital after defeating the novel COVID-19. Now, as the veteran actor is resting at home, he penned a heartfelt blog on Raksha Bandhan. Stating the importance of the festival of love, Mr. Bachchan used the power of words to depict the change in celebration due to the pandemic. After opening the blog with thoughts on Raksha Bandhan, the actor said that there is a sour taste in the mouth as his son Abhishek Bachchan is yet to test COVID negative and will remain in the hospital for a few more days.
The doting father said he is 'feeling bad for Abhishek' and continued penning a note for him and the Coronavirus warriors. "It has been heartening to be back from the Hospital after the ‘mukti’ from the Corona virus .. but a sour taste in the mouth when Abhishek has to still be in the medical care .. the medical conditions, tests, lab reports, clinical and physical and visual evaluations are all there in the minds of the qualified specialists that work day in day out to battle with this unique conditioning, and each hour through consultation, through the sharing of information, and experience with their fraternity from other parts of the World give us the hope of repair .. assuring us each minute that ‘all shall be well’ , when in fact they themselves struggle to find that confirmed patent that can be used delivered executed to save lives and conditions from the virus .. when I had addressed them as ‘angels in white’ I had never imagined that I would be supine in their midst to savour their angelic presence, as they give us hope inspiration and the strength to fight .. they are quite quite remarkable .. my gratitude shall never fail for them ..
.. and tomorrow be the festival of protection and security for the sister by the brother .. a pledge to be by her side, to hold her hand in times of trouble , to safeguard her from all evil that may erupt about and to let her know that no matter what he shall ever be by her side .. Raksha Bandhan : ‘raksha’ to protect ; ‘bandhan’ to tie to bond to hold together Our ‘samaaj’ does possess centuries old traditions that make us all valuable .. in the essence of behavioural convictions .. such convictions that can never be betrayed or dissolved .. they are the crafted genius of writings on stone .. forever ..
Mr. Bachchan and Abhishek were tested COVID positive on July 11. They were admitted to Nanavati Hospital immediately. A day later Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan were also tested positive. Soon, they were also hospitalised and got discharged on July 27.
