Hope this one wont be deleted

Dear sis

I am commenting on this one, so hope this one won't be deleted.

I liked your video. Really inspiring subject. Nice interviews. Nice B-roll of Sharada reading. Cute!!!

The only thing I would suggest is some B-roll (visual) of Sharada going to school, or her photos attending the school.

But overall, a cute story! Love!

Hello, Usha:

I love the way this video follows through on your consistent theme of dignity for all and freedom from outdated barriers. I also appreciate the fact that it is one, experienced, positive woman, and a story of success. I like your clear message, your inclusion of so much strong emotional support for, from, and within Sharada.

Excellent filming, too!

This is a testament to your precision and your strong vision and voice, Usha. Bravo!

Hooray for Sharada!

This is a beauriful tribute to an amazing and courageous woman. How did you meet her? Has she seen the video? Thank you for honoring her. She richly deserves your recognition. Would it be possible to show the video at her school? It could be vey motivating to other students or to adult literacy classes anywhere. Wow!

What a powerful voice

Usha -
What a beautiful choice of subject. Sharada is just radiant with pride and strength and has such a strong voice of her own. I love that her teacher is so supportive and that she is able to teach her own grand children as well. But Sharada's own words from the very beginning are so powerful and clear and full of strength and joy.
Thank you!
Vega

Dear Vega, I heartly thank

Dear Vega,
I heartly thank you for your comment .

Hugsssss

This was a very inspiring piece--to see Sharada studying English on her bed with the curtain gently blowing in the breeze behind her and her grandchild peeking in! You expanded out a picutre of her life so we could know a little more about her--that she had grandchildren and a family. The family photo was great! Also, the interview with the teacher about Sharad's commitment to school had impact. I think that a photo of Sharada in school and one of a family member praising and supporting her would also be good--maybe even the son whose coming on the train inspired her to go to school!
Lots of good work here and a lesson to us all to appreciate our educations!
Thank you,
