Voracious social networker Amitabh Bachchan has added his first post after the birth of his new granddaughter, to his blog.
In the post, Mr Bachchan describes the first-born of son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya. "Occasionally she opens her large and what looks now to be eyes of the lighter hue, which those that have dealt with similar, know shall change with time," says Mr Bachchan.
Aishwarya's own light eyes have been a noted feature of her beauty. Her mother Vrinda Rai has light eyes too.
An emotional Mr Bachchan goes on to recall a similar moment in his own life, when he placed newborn Abhishek in the arms of his own father, renowned poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
"As I look down upon her I bring myself back to the visual when I had placed her Father in just condition into my Father's hands, to be heralded into our home,' he says.
Mr Bachchan mentions the "exceptional strength and courage" of new mom Aishwarya during a tiring day of "great joy and combined happiness".
There is great discussion in the family on whom the yet-unnamed baby resembles, the Big B reveals.
Invoking the blessings of his own parents, the Big B signs off quoting one of the over 1000 congratulatory text messages received by him.
"May you live to dance at the wedding of this angel in your life. May we all ... indeed !!'
