amitabh bachchan

One expected Amitabh Bachchan our own ‘Chhora Ganga kinare wala’ to visit Allahabad, at least during the Mahakumbh. He has not done so till now. But he is to visit Varanasi. Will he be content touching the Ganga waters from Allahabad  at  Varanasi? Or will he still plan a visit before Mahashivratri. I wonder if he remembers those days when as a child he would accompany his revered father (and my teacher in English at AU), Poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan every Tuesday and Saturday  to pay homage to Lord Hanuman at the Barre Hanumanji Temple in the Sangam area? An old pujari, associated with this temple,  Shri Roopgiri recalls those visits when Big B would go there holding the finger of his father who had taught both his sons to recite Hanuman Chalisa as well. Shri Narendra Giri, the chief priest of this temple and Mahant of  Baghambari Gaddi told a scribe  in October 2011 that during the election campaign in 1984 and after winning the election Amitabh Bachchan  came to this temple to offer Prasad; and when son Abhishek was born, he had written to Umakant Malaviyaji to offer Prasad on his behalf to the deity to bless his child. One expected Amitabh to come personally with his family and seek the deity’s blessings for his grandchild as well. Will he?
