Nine yr old Aishwarya inspires Abhishek
No this time Abhishek Bachchan is not inspired by his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan but by a nine yr old student Aishwarya Sharma from Lucknow who along with 16 won the CNN IBN Citizen Journalist awards ceremony Wednesday night. Aishwarya Sharma becomes the youngest ever to file a Right to Information (RTI) query for removal of a garbage disposal site in front of her school.
Abhishek Bachchan who was present at the event as a chief guest was motivated by Aishwarya. He said, 'First of all, I would like to say that she (Aishwarya) is as beautiful as her namesake and I am proud of her. She is far more courageous than we are and is an inspiration for all of us,'
Aishwarya, a class three student from Lucknow school filed a RTI to remove the garbage from her school site. Her file resulted in the removal of garbage disposal and in that particular location, a public library has been opened up.
When the little girl came up to the stage to accept the trophy from the actor, she was more thrilled to take Abhishek’s autograph rather than accepting the trophy. She said she was a huge fan of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
At the end of the ceremony, Abhishek said: 'I feel very blessed and humbled to lead the life that I do after knowing the kind of troubles people go through but at the same time the positivity with which they deal with troubles is very motivating.'
'Their zest for life is infectious. The kind of initiatives that these people from very young to adults is very inspirational. Whatever I can do in my capacity, I pledge today I would love to help in whichever way possible,' he added.
The event will be telecast on Jan 26.
