Oprah amazed by India`s tolerance levels, joint families

Mumbai: American talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who is on her maiden visit to India, is amazed by the tolerance and system of joint families in the country.

"What I love most about this country is their tolerance... how the families learn to love and live together. When I was in America and talking to famous people (from
India) I would ask how you live with your parents? Now I see how you do it," she said.

She visited a city slum at Colaba here today and is also expected to have dinner with a family of four generations.

Oprah, who arrived here yesterday, is in the country for `Next Chapter`, a new series of her famous talk show `The Oprah Winfrey Show`, in which she would travel around the world interviewing celebrities, news-makers and others.

She kicked off her week-long visit to India by partying with Bollywood stars last night.
