Mumbai, Feb 24 : Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who returned home after a 12-day stay in hospital following his abdominal surgery, says he is happy to be back in familiar surroundings.
The 69-year-old actor was discharged from the Seven Hills hospital last night.
“Home....Just discharged from hospital and am back home in familiar surroundings, gently taking in all that now engulfs me. The surgery discomfort and soreness persists, but will take a while to finally erase itself from the pain glands, but in all, apart from a sluggish movement, Gods grace and prayers of the Ef have put me back on track again.
My most gracious thanks to all,” Bachchan wrote on his blog. “The staff had a satisfied look on their faces as a small traditional welcome is executed. As you stand by the entrance oil is poured out, water thrown down, the small ‘arti' and the ‘tika' and you step in to the house.
Of course the first stop is at ‘Prateeksha' and a small prayer at the temple, built by my Father before moving on,” he added. The actor also said that the staff at the hospital bade him adieu with smile on their faces.
“The staff and the nurses at 7 Hills were all smiles and expressed sadness that I was leaving, which was rather sweet of them. They would miss me they said, but hoped I would never have to come back again in adverse circumstances,” he said.
