Lessons for everybody

Way back when the Television in India did not have too many channels, except the ones run by state, Oshin was nightly episode.We all watched it ,I was very small then. I watched it again on you tube and I can really understand now why it creates that relation with each woman watching it. It gives the hope and courage to face situations and have the "Can do " attitude. Although times have changed, some of the situations that Oshin faces are still the same. The story telling is beautiful, the actors and the whole depiction is well done. It gives us a good picture of Japan during Meiji, especially for outsiders. The journey of Oshin and how she braves against all odds that life throws at her are depicted. Some of the episodes are very painful to watch but it is part of the story.
