Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood's acting legend Amitabh Bachchan has said he experienced a "deafeningly silent" Diwali this year amid the government's rule against the burning of firecrackers.

Describing his Diwali in a blog, Bachchan said, "It has been deafeningly silent for a Diwali night .. no or hardly any sound of fire crackers .. perhaps a GOI ruling against it , but even so an eerie silence about .. and a room full of family and each in his or her own world of the mobile ..

"what has the rapid communication done to us .. destroyed memory , remembering .. an answer to all on the net and a depletion of the mind and the brain to face upto the challenges, for public consumption and beyond."

Bachchan, who has a family full of actors, celebrated Diwali at his old home 'Pratiksha'.

The veteran actor along with his wife Jaya Bachchan, son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, daughter Shweta Nanda, grandchildren Aaradhya Bachchan and Agastya Nanda were spotted in cars reaching 'Pratiksha' for Diwali.

Amitabh Bachchan had also shared an old picture on social media saying, "To the several that have sent wishes on this auspicious day, my gratitude and grace .. it shall be impossible to respond individually to all, so kindly take this as my thankful response .."
