The 72-year-old actor stressed on the importance of giving and togetherness during his brief appearances in-between the mesmerising fusion concert by the "India's Got Talent" fame Shillong Chamber Choir and Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

Bachchan's invocations cast a spell on the audience on day two of the second edition of the Jodhpur One World Retreat, a biennial funding even to raise money for the Indian Head Injury Foundation.

The event was founded by the erstwhile ruler of Gaj Singh II.

"Be grateful because you live great," Bachchan said while calling upon to celebrate smiles, choices, health, freedom, education, meals, shelter, love and fortune as many are not fortunate to have them.  

While talking about "giving", Bachchan said, "We give because someone gave us and we give because nobody gave us. We give because giving has changed us, we give because giving could have changed us."  

At the end of the gala, Bachchan hit the stage with the musical groups joining them in salutation to the nation singing the national song "Vandemataram".

After the show, Bachchan congratulated the royal family of Jodhpur for this noble initiative to address the problem of head injury and trauma in India.
