My morning drive is great independence for me: Big B
New Delhi: Ahead of India`s Independence Day, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan muses it is a drive to the gym in the morning that gives him a "moment of great independence and free spirit". And he rues the "arrogant indiscipline" of traffic rule breakers.
"The day begins with a drive - a drive to the gym. A drive that I look forward to, because I drive myself. It’s a joy for me, a moment of great independence and free spirit," Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com.
The actor finds solace while driving early morning on the otherwise crowded roads of Mumbai.
"The morning hours are less crowded and sparse...Traffic lights bring in the only colours - red, orange, green, of the early start. And the odd traffic pays no heed to their changing colours," he posted.
Amitabh also takes a dig at traffic rule breakers.
"For most of the drivers in this area, red is the signal to drive past the signal! I look odd being obedient and true to law, as all the others paying scant respect to the traffic lights, spin past the crossings in arrogant indiscipline," he added.
