He is among the celebrities with the largest number of followers on social media, but there is much more to Amitabh Bachchan than his tweets.  The 73-year-old actor has been widely appreciated for his official blog Bachchan Bol on Tumblr which has been active for 3,000 days now.

Bachchan, who began blogging eight years ago, tweeted about this achievement but as always thanked his fans in poetic style.

The latest post was a reflection of his eight-year journey as a blogger, Bachchan underlined how he never thought he would live to see this day (completing 3,000 days) .Here are a few excerpts from the post.

‘There have been days of admonishing ... days of praise and value ... days of tidings that have been of love and worth … days of picturesque conversations ... of poetry and language and writings of some very superior quality ... days that have been brief ... and long too ... extra long at times ... days of understanding the text and not understanding a word...

But they all have had meaning and reason ... I may never be able to disclose most of them, for, they are beyond description or to put it bluntly, of absolutely no interest to you ... a personal lamentation, a personal impression or a personal quantification … all have been done and all have been read and reread many a time ... I shall never wish to change them for they are what came to me in an hour of contemplation – if at all contemplation be the avenue of my thoughts !’

Even though his latest film Te3n failed to do well at the box office, Amitabh Bachchan was widely appreciated for his role. We offer our best wishes to the actor and hope Bachchan Bol goes on to celebrate another 3,000 days.
