HappyTeachersDay: Amitabh Bachchan's pearls of wisdom that will motivate you ever

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the most inspirational tale. He is undeniably one of the greatest actors of Indian cinema who has ruled the industry with his impeccable acting for over four decades. He has touched many lives and inspired many souls with his acting, dance, dialogues, action, comedy, etc and the numerous roles that he played on and off screen. But besides that he is a great human being too, a thinker, a responsible citizen who cares for his country, a man embedded with social values too.

And beyond all that there is a closet teacher in the iconic star of the millennium. Yes, as much as Big B has an influencing baritone-voice to mesmerise the fans, his thoughts, learnings, observations, and approach towards life are profound too. Big B’s ideologies and insightful thoughts are an inspiration hub that he keeps sharing day-in and day-out on social media. In fact he is the only superstar to religiously share, post, repost the good thoughts, either by him or quoting someone else’s quotes or retweeting any good point that he comes across throughout the day, on a routine basis. He is the only personality on social media to even post the inspiring and motivating thoughts in Devnagri script, to make the essence of the thought more vivid and clear. He may not be a self-proclaimed teacher, but the way Big B conducts himself on social media, the way he presents his thoughts or shares the myriad beliefs, is a lesson enough learnt in a classroom. And what makes the patrons look upto the ‘pearls of wisdom’ shared by him is the fact that the grounded star Big B himself keeps an attitude & approach of a learner. So, the one who has an attitude of constantly learning and being humble towards learning can be perfect idol for others as well.
