Watch the film here.
Anandi is married to Gopalrao Joshi, a supportive yet intimidating man, who has a violent streak. Though she is terrified of him in the beginning, Anandi comes into her own and learns to stand up for herself when need be. She also decides to take on a field (medicine) that she knows zilch about and only has her books and Gopalrao to depend on.
2. Willingness to bring about a change
3. Dedication and hard work
Hard work is one of the ways to success and there’s no two ways about it! Anandi is a clear example of the same. She hails from a small village and has no background in any form of education. And yet, she decides to pursue medicine. Anandi works hard day and night and emerges as one of India’s first female doctors in the world. Now if this isn’t dedication, then what is, right?
4. Having faith in others
Gopalrao’s ways may not be conventional with Anandi, but his heart is in the right place. The latter recognizes this and trusts him blindly. She lets him mentor her, without any questions or mistrust. The ability to have faith in others is rare and Anandi sets an example with this quality of hers.
5. Going against the norm
It takes a lot of guts to follow your own belief and go against what society expects from you. Yet, Anandi doesn’t bat an eyelid while doing so. She is ridiculed, called names and judged for not giving time to household work. But Anandi keeps on going and working towards her dream.
