Alongside the clip, Big B had written: "Last year the Mayor of Wroclaw declared me as the Ambassador of the City of Wroclaw, in Poland... Today they organised a recitation of my Babuji's Madhushala by the University students on the roof of the University building. As Wroclaw was awarded the title of a UNESCO City of Literature, they could pass on the message to Babu Ji's lovers from all around the world - Wroclaw is a City of Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Moved beyond emotion .. thank you Wroclaw .. in this time of my trial it brings so much cheer to me."
