With a view to collect as many experiences, pictures and data as is possible, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to ask his fans to mail any data any one had of his famous father. The website, which would have comprehensive facts about the poet would also provide the fans and the readers with many inside stories of the life of the poet.
