Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who keeps himself abreast of technology and is clued in with new gadgets, says the mobile phone and its camera have turned the 21st century into the "ultimate documentator".
“The mobile conveniences devised for connectivity, emerge each couple of months with greater benefits... The connect is fine... the storage is fine... the applications are fine... but what really has been its growth factor is the CAMERA,” the 72-year-old wrote on his blog.
“This generation of the 21st Century has become the ultimate documentator, the historian, the informative librarian, teacher, educator... all, in one remarkably compact gadget,” he added.
The “Piku” star further posted some photographs clicked by him of various exotic places.
He wrote: “The sand-blown land visuals that envelope and embrace the truest blue of the waters are pictures above the Saudi Arabian peninsula, the Red Sea, reaching out to the Arabian Sea and the Gulf States further.
“A wondrous sight, that justifies the ethereal beauty of our planet... its texture, its grace, its vastness and its unique planetary presence.”
On the career front, the actor is gearing up for "Wazir", which also stars multi-faceted Farhan Akhtar.
