Amitabh Bachchan has been an active contributor in spreading awareness amid the coronavirus outbreak. The actor, who has already released a few videos about preventive measures, has now shared a story about what being civilised actually means. Telling a story about the first sign of civilisation, he wrote, “Years ago, anthropologist Margaret Mead was asked by a student what she considered to be the first sign of civilization in a culture. The student expected Mead to talk about fishhooks or clay pots or grinding stones. But no. Mead said that the first sign of civilization in an ancient culture was a femur (thighbone) that had been broken and then healed. Mead explained that in the animal kingdom, if you break your leg, you die. You cannot run from danger, get to the river for a drink or hunt for food. You are meat for prowling beasts. No animal survives a broken leg long enough for the bone to heal.”
