Aishwarya Bachchan is all the way in the news after Republic Day… Look at the news that happened…

A college for girls from Bachchan family

The news is from DAULATPUR (BARABANKI), on 27th januray 2008, the foundation of the Shrimati Aishwarya Bachchan Girls’ Degree College was laid by film actor Amitabh Bachchan here on Sunday.

The entire United National Progress Alliance (UNPA) leadership was in attendance. The Bachchan family — Amitabh’s wife Jaya, son Abhishek and his wife Aishwarya — made the day a memorable one for the people of this remote village, about 60 km from Lucknow. A 15,000 strong crowd thronged the venue. The foundation-laying ceremony coincided with the 52nd birthday of Samajwadi Party national general secretary Amar Singh The ceremony was witnessed by the former Chief Ministers Mulayam Singh (Uttar Pradesh); Chandrababu Naidu (Andhra Pradesh); Farooq Abdullah (Jammu and Kashmir); and Om Prakash Chautala (Haryana).

Mr. Mulayam Singh said not a single girl should remain uneducated and jobless.

The UNPA chairman said that the development witnessed in Uttar Pradesh when he was the Chief Minister would not have been possible without Mr. Amar Singh’s initiative.

Mr. Singh said the development in Uttar Pradesh in the three-and-a half years of the Samajwadi Party rule equalled the achievement during the 40 years preceding it.

Mr. Naidu suggested that Mr. Bachchan should follow the example of Microsoft chief Bill Gates and mobilise money to eradicate poverty.

He assured the film actor that the UNPA would support his efforts.

Mr. Naidu’s suggestion was supported by Mr. Mulayam Singh and Mr. Amar Singh. Mr. Bachchan, however, asked Mr. Naidu to take the lead and said his family would assist him. While Mr. Abdullah described the event as a big step towards education of girls that would ensure them jobs.

Mr. Chautala attacked the UPA Government at the Centre for ignoring the interests of the farmers. Aishwarya Rai said she always dreamt of a girl’s college and “today the dream has been fulfilled.”

The Bachchan “bahu,” clad in a pink Kanjeevaram silk saree, thanked the people of U.P. for the love and affection showered on her. Mr. Amitabh Bachchan announced that he would finance the education of two girls, Anjali (8 years old) and Rimjhim (6 years old), who had been abandoned by their parents.

On Monday, 28th January 2008, a news from Lucknow came with the name Aishwarya Bachchan… please have a look at it…

Amar Singh names new bungalow ‘Aishwarya’

Besides a proposed girls college in Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh’s new home in Lucknow too has been named after Bollywood actress and his friend Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

This came to light when Singh took the Bachchan family to his recently built plush bungalow in the Uttar Pradesh capital’s upmarket Vipul Khand of Gomati Nagar on Saturday night.

Amitabh Bachchan and his entire family were driven from the Lucknow airport straight to Aishwarya, where they had dinner and spent the night.

When a reporter confronted Singh with a query about the name of the house, he shot back, ”Abhishek is like a son to me and Aishwarya my daughter-in-law, so what if I have named my house after her and what if I decide to even gift this house to her?”

He went on to add: ”You should know that Aishwarya is also another name for Goddess Lakshmi.”
