thank god, he lived a full life and departed healthy and happy...having said that it is somehow sad to see these great actors who morphed into super stars and had a cult status once upon a time and continue to have a very special place in our heart, doing so much damage, destroying what was once so beautiful by loosing grip on reality once age sets in. being an icon when they were young instead of chosing to evolve with time, ageing gracefully, translating that grace of youth in their older years like ashok kumar, raj kapur or rajendra kumar did, bacchan is trying to, the lot of devanand, rajesh khanna, dharmendra, dilip kumar start behaving like wierdos...making fool of themselves. they turned themselves into a caricature of their wonderful years making a mockery of that person we loved so much. in that sense as a fan of devanada of yesteryear i feel relieved that he lived a happy long healthy life and its over now.
