Global icon and Africa’s tireless anti-apartheid campaigner, Nelson Mandela left us on December 5; aged 95. Since his passing, Madiba has received tributes from all over the world. With condolence messages pouring in from royals, statesmen and celebrities everywhere, Bollywood has pitched in too. Leading the pack in his inimitable fashion, Amitabh Bachchan put out a heartfelt message: “Nelson Mandela - a giant of a man; of will, belief and perseverance, passes away. But leaves behind a legacy of fight for right!!” No words can really articulate the loss, but Rahul Bose did well to say: “In an age where just about everybody is hailed as an ‘icon,’ we’ve just lost one. And this is how awful it feels.” R.I.P Madiba.
