Needless to say "The Wizard of Oz" is a classic of all time, I was re-watching it over the weekend(I believe I last saw it when I was 6 or something) And I was totally blown away how this movie that was made in 1939 and its effect on modern day life.
DID YOU KNOW...
"Home Sweet Home"
"Ding Dong the witch is dead"
were originated from this movie? And imagine the impact on the lessons-learned, the themes that is impeded on our minds...

I was also watching "Devi's Classroom", a Japanese short TV series this weekend. And there is 11 episodes in total and I was balling in EVERY episode. Lols!!! No, this is not an epic love story or like tragedy, its actually about a class of 6-graders challenging their home room teacher who is portrayed to be demonic. But actually she is trying to use a Socratic/hard times approach to let the kids learn their own lesson. I know the storyline is actually quite improbable but its one of those Dramas that would make you think , and during each episode when she's preaching, you'll find yourself nodding. Honestly are we really any better than 6 graders? We definitely should know better but are we really putting our utmost efforts to be a better person? Time to reflect on how many times we have took the easy way out, not holding up our principles, and time to think how many times we followed what everyone ELSE did and blaming the society for our wrong doings.
