There’s a thin line between funny and crying for help, they say. Not everyone gets to know when they’re close to crossing over.
Sometimes we don’t realise what we’re doing for the sake of fun, maybe, is causing mental torture on the other person. However, this time it was a kid, a three-year-old girl, who was being taught maths, particularly the numbers, and her failure to recall them surrounded her with torture and mental assault.
Many had laughed at the viral video earlier until Virat Kohli shared it and made people realise that what seems funny is blatant mental torture. Thereafter, a trail of celebrities also dissed the video sending out a message to the people that innocence of the kids shall not be assaulted by any means.
Days after the video went viral, it has been revealed that the kid belonged to a celebrity family. She is the niece of singer and music composer duo Sharib and Toshi. But what’s sad is that the singer instead of accepting where things went wrong is defending it all.
In an interview to Hindustan Times, Toshi said, “Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan don’t know about us. Hamare bachche ke bare mein humein pata hai naah ki hamara bacha kaisa hai! Uska nature hai waisa… Agle hi pal woh khelne chali jaati hai. Agar aap usko chod do toh woh kahengi main mazzak kar rahi thi. Uske nature ki wajah se chod denge toh woh padai bhi nahi kar paayengi.”
Furthermore, he says that the child is stubborn and that they cannot stop educating her just because she cries.
Toshi, you’ve done more damage than good. This certainly does not defend the mental pain she had gone through. She’s just a three-year-old and having suffered this at this tender age, we hope it doesn’t impact her personality in future.
Kids shall not be pressurised for anything. The innocent souls shall never lose their smile.
