Story: Amithabh Bachan Traveling

Amitabh Bacchan says..."At the peak of my career, I was once travelling by plane. The passenger next to me was elderly gentleman dressed in a simple shirt 
and pants. He appeared to be 
middle class, and well educated.
Other passengers  perhaps recognising who I was, but this gentleman appeared to be 
unconcerned of my presence... He was reading his paper, looking out of the window, and when tea was served, he sipped it quietly. 

Trying to strike a conversation with him I smiled. The man courteously smiled back and said 'Hello'. 
We got talking and I brought up the subject of cinema and movies and asked, 'Do you watch films?' 

The man replied, 'Oh, very few. 
I did see one many years ago.' 
I mentioned that I worked in the movie industry.

The man replied.." oh, that's nice. What do you do?'  
I replied, 'I am an actor ' 
The man nodded, 'Oh,  that's 
wonderful!'  And that was it...  
When we landed, I held out 
my hand and said, " It was good to travel with you. By the way, my name is Amitabh Bacchan !' 

The man shook my hand 
and smiled, "Thank you... nice to have met you..I am J. R. D. Tata!"
I learned on.that day that no matter how big you think you. are, there is always someone *bigger*.
*Be humble, it costs nothing.*
