We need to learn from free-spirited, fearless children, says Bachchan


Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan feels that adults should learn from children to be free-spirited, innocent and honest.

The 72-year-old, who attended the ‘Swachata ki Paathshala’ event at a school in Mumbai, said it was an “enlightening” experience to spend time with the future of the country.

Amitabh posted on his blog, “A joy to be among them that shall one day be the future and run the country…They are free spirited, no inhibitions, no ego, no self-consciousness, no fear and no ill will among them.”

He added, “They have truth, they have innocence and they do not hesitate to speak their minds without any hesitation…We need to learn so much from them. An exciting moment I would say for me and for all because when you shall see the programme you will realise that it was we that were the students and the students our teachers.”

The Piku star also shared a collage of photographs from the event on Twitter. “A day spent with school children for ‘Swachata ki Paathshala’…so enlightening and a learning for me,” he captioned the image.

Meanwhile, Bachchan on 25 September also posted the teaser of his upcoming TV serial, Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi on Twitter, which would be telecast on Star Plus.
