“There is a certain joy in giving. Giving to those that have remained sincere and faithful. That have shown strength of belief. At the AGM this morning for AB Corp, that is what I encountered with my share holders. Through thick and thin, mostly thin, they have remained with me and with support and compassion for my conditions for years. So when I declare a dividend for them there is a certain joy in giving. I am happy to have announced a 20% dividend. We are a small company, with small profits, but profits all the same and to share that with them is such satisfaction. Thank you shareholders for being with me and for giving me all your good wishes and support” – Amitabh Bachchan in his blog: http://bigb.bigadda.com/
It is only in giving to those around you.. those that really deserve to be given, you not only find joy – but you are relieved of a lot of negativity that follows you around. To have the knowledge that by giving you get.. is wisdom.
Amitabh Bachchan may be a superstar to millions. For me, he has been a distant teacher of wisdom. My first lesson from him was when I was 14.. or 15.. when he said in a stage show: I thought that winning awards is the goal in life, but no.. the greatest award a human being gets is when he understands himself…
Is that not the mission of life for all human beings?
Thank you Mr. Bachchan, not only have you entertained us all for many years – you have taught good things also.
