Amitabh Bachchan steps boldly into India's economic row, says rural India growth slow
Stating that it is the youth of the country who werecalling shots, the Big B said in his blog, "... They are deciding the culture, the films, the clothing, music, opinion, politics, morals of this country on the move. If we do not respect them they have the capacity to over run us by the strength of their sheer numbers.
"At the same time if we give them good guidance, education, opportunities, they will and do possess the brilliance to follow the paths that would be beneficial. They need to be understood and they need to be channelled! And they will be of benefit...of this I am certain... for there is one very major factor in favour...they passionately care and love India!!"
Big B, who landed at the Bhopal's Raja Bhoj International Airport here yesterday, also praised the new Bhopal Airport saying that "it resembles a space craft."
"The new airport at Bhopal...a spanking new facility, which resembles a space craft, is a revelation for me. When I first came to the city in 1973 soon after marriage to Jaya, the place was just a vacant isolated cottage like airport, and an airfield that could only take small range propeller aircraft. and now..." he wrote.
