A video of a little girl being threatened and then slapped by a woman who was trying to teach her mathematics had provoked anger among its viewers.
The heartbreaking film started showing a little girl reciting the numbers, “2, 3, 4,5” repeatedly to a woman.
After the woman shouted at her, the toddler started to cry as she pleaded saying, “Will you teach me, lovingly? My head is going to burst out.”
She continued counting and by reading her body language and hand gestures, it was assumed that the little girl was getting upset and frustrated.
The woman continued asking her and in an instance when the girl had given a wrong answer, the woman raised her voice and said, “5!”
The child was somehow explaining but as she tries, the woman slapped her.
Holding her cheek, the poor child continued to recite the numbers as tears fell from her eyes.
Some celebrities who were able to watch the video criticized the woman for being so harsh with the girl, saying it was never the right way to teach a child.
Here are some comments shared on social media:
According to Virat Kohli who wrote on Instagram: “The fact that the pain and anger of the child are ignored and one’s 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.”
Also on Twitter, Hyderabad journalist Vamsi Kaka called it “the most disturbing video he came across” and added that “Innocence and childhood being taken away in the name of education.”
It was not clear however what the woman’s relation to the child is, but regardless of it, the child should have been treated fairly and young that she is, she deserves all the love that an adult can give. After all, adults should become a good example to the younger generation so they may grow with good values and above all, love for others.
