Big B reveals cleaning his own bathroom, making bed as he quarantines

In a long blog post, Big B mentioned that he was taking care of himself and doing all chores during his covid isolation period. From cleaning his own bathroom to preparing his own bed and tea, he has been managing everything on his own. He also shared that he is currently feeling stable. 

"... and no where is this more prominent and in execution than the times of ‘isolation’ for the dread of the ViD 19 , or to be more precise , its prevailing variant .. suddenly the exercise of making your own bed, cleaning your bath and toilet , wiping the floor, switching on the required plugs and switches , making your own snack and drink ( tea and the coffee) , folding and setting up the cupboard with your clothing , responding personally to calls and mobile responses , drafting your own letters .. and submitting yourself to the medication prescription by the doctors without the assist of a nursing staff .. ALL .. is what life in these times is made of .. And it is the most enjoyable and satisfying experience of them all .. The diminishing on the reliance of your staff .. and more importantly the realisation, as I have submitted many times before, what your staff go through during an entire day .. gaining thereby the respect that should be theirs .." Senior Bachchan wrote.
