The Government of India has decorated me today with the highest Padma Award of the country, the Padma Vibhushan ..
I have no words to express my gratitude to the powers that be and am most humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity of the people that decide or sit on judgement on this ..
In the family now we have a combined list of 7 such awards of the highest National acclaim ..
My Father : Padma Shree , Padma Bhushan
Jaya : Padma Shree
Aishwarya : Padma Shree
AB : Padma Shree, Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan
In one family this must be perhaps the only reference or case in the country. I feel blessed and honoured, fortunate and humbled, overwhelmed and submerged by the affection and love of the people …
And here now the link for the National Anthem sung by me and video shot at the ancestral home of Rabindranath Tagore, in Kolkata - Jorasanko Thakur Badi ..
And now to rest … to travel tomorrow to beyond the seas to London and Dubai for the promotions of #shamitabhMovie ..
My love ..
