Amitabh Bachchan at CNN IBN Heroes awards 2013 in Mumbai, on Monday, December 2.
“CNN IBN gives me the honor of rewarding senior citizens who have contributed to society .. what an inspiring moment …Senior Citizens .. !! All above the 62 age barrier, what zeal and what dedication to work and to give back to society ..inspired. I was asked to give away the award to those, who have selflessly worked for society. Just being in the ambience of these giants of society, in their beliefs and in their work .. was sufficient, to get provoked !!,” Amitabh Bachchan tweeted about this.
“An evening with CNN IBN and those senior citizens that have selflessly worked independently for society, for children, for education, for differently abled … and living in the glory of their achievements … inspired by their determination despite all odds working towards the betterment of those that have been deprived of it..,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
“How fortunate are we that such individuals exist .. exist among us to teach us a lesson that age does not bind them after 60 or 70 … indeed it spurs them on to continue … to continue to serve humanity … to be involved and in a sense involve themselves too, so that the work and the teachings imparted to others brings the ‘others’ joy and happiness, fulfilment and a dream, hope and expectation of the world turning out right for them eventually..,” He added.
