Actor Amitabh Bachchan feels the purity of written and spoken language is subsiding in these times of quick communication but hopes to restore the charm of literature by opening a museum to store his father and noted writer Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s works.

“We used to spend a lot of thought behind what was written and spoken. Perhaps, it was a lot richer in earlier times,” he says, adding: “I don’t want to blame today’s generation. The time has changed, communication has become quick.”
