Video of a little girl is doing rounds on social media platforms. You must be wondering that what’s so different in this. Well, it isn’t a pleasing video at all. Infact, it is a bit disturbing.
There are greater chances that you must have seen the video of a girl who is trying to learn numbers while she sheds tears at the same time.
And if you haven’t, then let me tell you. The video shows a little girl repeating numbers 1 to 5 which are written on a notebook. She is constantly reciting those numbers as she is trying to mug them up. The girl then requests for a break as she claims that she is having a headache. But the woman behind the camera, possibly the mother, or any close relative continues to get the child to repeat the counting. She even slaps her.
This video is going viral on facebook and whatsapp.
While few people claim that there is nothing unusual in this video, and say that every child gets beaten up a little by their parents to help them with study.
But many people are against this act and call it ruthless.
Even celebrities like Virat Kohli, Robin Uthappa, and Shikhar Dhawan expressed their thoughts on the video. They have asked for parents to be patient with their children while maintaining that each child learns at his/her own pace.
Dhawan wrote, “I request parents to be patient with ur kids at all times. Every child learns at his own pace. Pls refrain from beating/degrading them.”

Virat Kohli took to his Instagram account and expressed his angry through his status. He wrote “The fact that the pain and anger of the child is ignored and ones own ego to make the child learn is so massive that compassion has totally gone out of the window. This is shocking and saddening to another dimension. A child can never learn if intimidated. This is hurtful.”
Uthappa tweeted, “This is heart wrenching. Children shouldn’t be raised this way. This needs to stop. I pray we can raise our kids with love instead of fear.”
