She is the one of the few who can make anyone cry with joy, jump with glee and touch one’s heart; all at once. When Oprah Winfrey retired from ‘Oprah’ it had an international effect. All her fans cried as they would have missed not only an exceptionally well written, executed and scripted show but also the constant presence of Oprah. After all she was one of the rare connections to all those people who have faced the worst in life and yet they feel that they are to be blamed somehow for what happened. Oprah educated us about sexual harassments, identity crisis and transgender problems. Although she continued to do her own television series yet the void cannot be filled.
People in the urban India also feel that no one can replace her, in terms of the issues that she talked about and also the way she handled it. “She talks about skeleton in the closets and addresses issues in a direct manner. She is one lady who can call a spade a spade and yet not offend people as everyone loves Oprah,” says Ritika Singh, who used to follow her show ardently and is really happy to know that her idol would visit India.
