'And this at Abhishek's Superman party in Prateeksha, long years ago ... filming the proceedings .. those days the 8mm camera was a delight .. after filming, it had to be processed, then it could be seen only on a projector .. on a white wall or a white screen .. AND NOW ..shoot on mobile and watch immediate !!Times they change,' Bachchan writes.

Amitabh writes: 'A picture that speaks much .. it is the Hindi production of 'Othello' staged by us in Delhi .. My Father's translation and Mother and son acting in it.

'Here my Mother that played Desdemona's maid, and the skinny lad that wears yet another false beard on knee is the AB playing Cassio .. Neera Kukreja played Desdemona in the picture too ... and Ashok Rampal, Iago on the right ... such fond memories of the IFACS theatre in Delhi.'

Amitabh Bachchan wrote a moving tribute on his Teji's birth anniversary: 'My Mother Tej Kaur Suri, before marriage, was just 3 months old when her Mother passed away. She never did ever experience the joy and care and the most important company of a Mother. She never knew what a Mother was ! Is that in some way indicative of how dear a Mother she herself became, when we were born ? I often wonder, as does my Father in his autobiography!'
