Se trata de un culebrón que está causando sensación en el país de los talibanes. Para más INRI -esa excelente marca de crucifijos- se trata de un culebrón hindú:
The series 'The mother-in-law was a daughter-in-law once too', or 'Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' in its original Hindi, has transfixed the country.
Men, women, young and old — anyone, it seems, with access to a television — is enthralled by the family drama. It centres on Tulsi, a young bride from a poor family who married because of love and is persecuted by her evil mother-in-law.
For the first time, Afghans, who live in a deeply conservative Islamic society where family problems are invariably kept hidden behind a veil of privacy, have been able to see a long-running family drama that explores so many of the issues they encounter in their own lives.
"It is a very interesting TV series, which is about the relations and it is so close to our lives. And each Afghan who watches it can relate to the series," said Amin Jan, who watches the show with his family.
"When this TV series starts I leave all my work and watch it even if I am eating dinner. I don't want to miss even a single scene of it because it is very interesting and loveable," says Bibi Razia, who is sitting with Jan to watch the show.
Los talibanes derrotados por la tele. Vivir para ver.
¡Caray con la suegra. Deben de estar temblando los talibanes…!
