I used to think that Amitabh Bachchan was a great role model for Indians. But his regular treks to temples across India are consistently eroding his stature in my eyes.
India is anyway full of religious fanatics and superstitious people who would believe and follow so called god men and waste their lives believing in some hocus pocus.
The biggest name in India acting in such fashion only makes things worse. I am sure thousands of Amitabh followers would soon imitate Amitabh and maybe even try to make the idols drink milk!
In today’s India it seems “Science” and “Scientific Temper” are topics meant only for speeches but never for actual implementation.
