Growing up all these years specially for us Born in 80’s had a special affection for Television . Till Late 80’s , Only Doordarshan was used to be our window of world and that too in Black & White for me . “Chitrahaar ” , ” Byomkah Bakshi ” & ” Ramayan ” used to be topic of discussion at recess break at school . With Early (0’s Come trend of few satellite channel which used to broadcast English Movies over weekend .Most of those used to be either UK /US originated like 1950’s Classic or South Asian One’s.
Although with our limited command over English Taught in “Hinglish ” School , most of the content used to go above the head . But between those boring one comes the Movie with Action paced punches and human fighting with bare hands /legs just at a speed lower than light and it always used to left u our mouth wide open . Those were all Kung Fu , Karate , Chip- chop or whatever the technique used to called inspired action movies . Those made us dream of going to some far flung places in mountains covered with snow and find a dwarf size white master who will train and teach all those moves and make us a super human . The Crazinees was such that , among bunch of my sibling and friends we tried some moves at home /school and broke few bones too . But that stuff was like a style statement for us and it unknowingly made us a big fan of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee .
As the time went by and we crossed various stages of life , but the fascination towards Kung – Fu never faded , rather kept on getting stronger . While Bruce Lee is a Hardcore Practitioner of art and his movies was all about showcasing this form to the world . But Jackie chan ones were totally commercial movies with an appeal to global audience . It has Emotion , Drama , Action and Lots of Humor . With Jackie’s association with Big Studio of Hollywood , his work was released even in multiplex’s of Metro city in India . So over the years , While World was aware of his acting skills , his real life work made him a Person better than he appeared in a movie script .
THE JACKIE , THE CHAN
Jackie , Born in HongKong , is truly one of the international film industry’s true maverick actor / director / stuntman / producer combinations . Off screen he has been directly involved in many philanthropic ventures providing financial assistance to schools and universities around the world. He is a UNICEF /UNAIDS GoodWill Ambassador, and he has campaigned against animal abuse and pollution and assisted with disaster relief efforts in various natural / Man Made disasters .He founded the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation & Dragon Heart Foundation to help young people in a variety of worthy causes, including medical services, aid to victims of natural disaster or illness, scholarships and youth activities. He Has Been Named as Philanthropy’s hardest working Man By Forbes in 2011 . All this and at age of 60+ and his efforts are going stronger and stronger urging and getting more and more people to join this mission of Helping Society down the lone .
Chan is always the one who stands out and offers help after disasters strike.
Few of his works which made world notice and join his efforts include his donation of USD $800,000 to help Haiti earthquake victims ,$5.2 million to support the Singapore Thong Chai Medical Institution and raising $29 million for earthquake victims of Qinghai, China.
He is the only celebrity who openly pledge to donate at his time of death all of his fortune left to charity leaving nothing for his son . with a hope to inspire other to follow the path
For all these Reason , he is supposed to be more popular across globe than many of the Superstar’s of INDIA are including Khan’s , Big B.
Fortunately , during my recent trip to china , Lady Luck smiled on me and I got a chance to attend 60th Birthday Celebration of JACKIE CHAN with the star himself . He really Inspired me what’s the real meaning of being ” Down to the ground ” is and never let worldly success overpower your inner human and always give back to society much more than what you get from them
