Panama leaks on Amitabh Bacchan
Mr. Amitabh Bacchan, the super hero and the icon of crores of Indian as well as citizens of other countries has been charged with fraud and corruption on the basis of panama leaks. He has been accused of setting fraud companies abroad and transferring money from India either to them or to foreign banks. His daughter in law Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bacchan has been presented as a co-accused. It is alleged that both of them are on the board of directors of the four companies. Thus they are accused of tax evasion and violating rules of enforcement directorate. Mr.Amitabh Bacchan has denied these charges and has called himself innocent.
Mr.Amitabh Bacchan’s life has been full of struggles;physical as well as mental. He has faced such situations several times and has emerged from them like the sun out of the dense clouds. His father Dr. Hariwansh Rai Bacchan was not only a great scholar and famous poet, but also a man of ideals and values. Amitabh has inherited high principles from his father. He is a worthy son of a worthy father. He may falter but can never fall.
His struggle started early in life. He struggled hard to establish himself as an actor. He failed several times. His films flopped but with the screening of Zanjeer, he achieved success and became the icon of youths of 70s and 80s. Another phase in his life came when he failed as a hero of films. His films didn’t do brisk business. He took temporary leave, changed his strategy, accepted character roles and became unique in acting. In his second inning as an actor he achieved several awards and honors.
Mr.Amitabh Bacchan has fought not only as an actor but also as a man. He faced and fought in depth and emerged victorious because as in his own words, he would hate a death with bandaged eyes. He has been operated upon several times and each time he defeated death and came out of it unharmed.
Mr.Amitabh Bacchan is not only a good professional actor but also a great man. Undoubtedly he is a superhero of films but he is greater as a human being. His greatness as a son, as a brother, as a friend, as a father and husband is unparalleled. In spite of being cheated several times, he has not lost his faith in human values and is practicing them without caring for result or return.
Such a big man cannot tell lies. So we have to believe when he says that he is innocent. He has done nothing wrong.
We should wish him long life and success because like ULYSSES, he also has been,
’’ Made weak by time and fate but strong in will’’
‘’ To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.’’
