A chronic condition not only disturbs your physical well-being, but also mental. And if you have to live with it for years, there’s nothing worse. Speaking at the launch of a media campaign for Hepatitis, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan revealed that only 25 % of his liver is functional and he requires constant medication, as his condition is like that of an alcoholic, despite the fact that he doesn’t drink.
He explained that the disease was contracted accidentally when 60 bottles of blood were infused into his system when he battled for life after sustaining injuries for a shooting sequence in the blockbuster movie Coolie.
While the superstar discovered the bitter truth only in 2000, almost 18 years after the incident it is his will-power and goodness that keeps him moving. Heartbreaking as it sounds, let’s take an oath to appreciate the goodness in everything we have rather than cribbing for the things we don’t!
