    Recalling one of his earlier accidents, Bachchan said: "Years ago, on a Diwali night, a bursting firecracker burnt my left hand. For months, I was unable to lead a normal life. I was unable to do the basic things in daily life like wearing clothes. Thankfully now, my hand is fine and I am leading a normal life, but those few months of my life made me understand how it feels if you do not have a part of your body. It is miserable."

    Anand Pandit said, "I have always believed in social causes but the inspiration behind that has been Mr Amitabh Bachchan, the legend. There are very few people like Amitabh ji who inspire you to do well. Also, I'd like to thank Mr Kirit Somaiya and his trust for their support and for facilitating the process of getting these kits to those who need them."
