Hachiko: A dog’s tale

08 Apr

Last few days back, we watched the movie Hachiko: A dog’s tale. I watched roughly one hour of that movie after my daily serials Pabitra Rishta (Zee TV) and Mukti Bandhan (Colors). I know it’s a bit irritating for every one to digest the highest level of stupidity and the over sacrifice of Manab and Archana. Still I watch them regularly. I don’t want to miss a single episode of Mukti Bandhan, actually I like the way of I.M.Virani to take the revenge of his enemies, his life style. My husband used to come after those serials, because he knows that he will not get any chances to watch his favorite programmes until and unless these two serials finish their episodes. I even hand over the remote after watching the trailers of the next episode.

Anyway, that day, he forcefully asked me to watch this movie. I have watched a very few numbers of English movies. But this movie really touched my mind. It is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. This very special friend would accompany his master to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. But unfortunately his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty.

Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya station in Japan as a permanent reminder of his devotion and love.

It is a true story of faith, devotion and undying love, based on a Professor Parker Wilson, in Bedridge, who finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes it home with the intention of returning the animal to its owner. He finds that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. However, nobody claims the dog so his family decides to keep Hachi.

I forgot exactly from where I listened to a same type of a true story of a dog who kept waiting out side the Hospital where his master was admitted. Sadly his master passed away, but the dog did not meet him, he even did not see the dead body of his master. So he started waiting at the entrance of the hospital at which he was departed from his master, for so many years.

It is really proved to be true that dogs are the most devoted animal to their masters!!!!
