As news reports publish snaps of the biggest New Year bashes thrown by the Indian Film Industry, one major name decided to mellow his party mood, stay at home and reflect on how the world has developed.

Taking to his Tumblr��blog site, veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan expressed, “It has been a most quiet bringing in…an empty home without the kids and the cheer of the family voices, shrill and excited as the hours become one. At times I feel it to be a blessing – these normal and quiet evenings.��Days change, months change, year changes as well…one of the years is left behind and the anticipation of the next takes over…wishes flow out for the burial of one and the birth of another new…its like life regenerating itself… life as in the life of humans.”

As many take note in what the last year has meant to them and what they would like to make of the next, Bachchan pondered on how the world has changed so much over many years, in which technology has taken over, “One has seen and been through those routines for years! It was first the letters that one wrote to wish the new year, written weeks in advance because of the time it took, to reach its desired destination on time – the 1st of January !!”

He continued by questioning what technology has in store for us next, “Then the telephone discovered means of connecting the voice and giving those letters an audio sound…! Mobiles came next and the ease of connecting while crossing a street in the middle of no where…and today we connect on FaceTime and Skype, to see each other and virtually wish out…What next on this communication agenda ??”

2015 has a lot in store for this actor, with three film already in the pipeline for release as well as being a major part in some of India’s biggest campaign, here’s hoping this year will bring the actor as much success as he has had in the past.
