Are we Right in Sharing This Child’s Video, Whatever May be Our Intention

Did you come across the video of the child being tormented by her parent/caregiver for not being able to identify numbers correctly? And what did you do about it? Possibly shared it ahead with a strong message condemning it.


But in doing so did you not violate the child’s privacy?


Several individuals including the Men in Blue came out in protest of the ‘inhuman’ treatment meted out to the child. Virat Kohli and other cricketers including Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh and Robin Uthappa took to social to express outrage. The source of the video is unknown but the internet is ablaze with discussions on the subject.


Kohli posted the video from his Instagram account and did not mince his words. “The fact that the pain and anger of the child is 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.”


We are sure that all those who saw the video were moved by the trauma the child was experiencing. All of us will have felt angered at the caregiver and her lack of empathy.


But apart from salvaging our own conscience by strongly condemning the act have we really helped the child in any way?


What do you think? Let us know in comments.

I so strongly feel that we shouldn't be sharing a crying baby's video! that too without adding any value to the child's life!

Really we shouldn't,  I don't understand what kind of a mother she is?  Torturing baby for home work and making video of it... 😩

That girl is niece to famous singer. Private video has been leaked or what don't know? Now a days , society has been very sensitive. I don't support that mother..just seeing a small bit of video , we can't judge someone's parenting. My daughter will cry hell out her lungs when she started schooling or when forced to eat. Is that baby go through this daily...or only after many reminders or after all possible things failed and mother have taken a big cruel step??? Kids are very lazy now a days. They just want to be in front of mobile or TV. Sometimes for kids sake, parents have to be strict.

Her mama that is her mother's brother is a singer and he defended his sister saying " we know our child " and the video was sent only to her brother and husband. So they really dint understand what their mistake was.

no we aren't doing it right

i think video cameras and internet have made our lives open for all to judge. We shouldnt encourage sharing of the childs video. If at all the right people should investigate to ensure childs safety

so now the child's relatives are saying things are blown out of proportion and the internet is over reacting. one comment was that we as kids were beaten, and we turned out fine.... but we as kids didn't have to carry this big burden of learning that children nowadays do either... it's still a pity that a 3 year old must perfect writing, reading, and perfecting numbers, and that she has to plead to teach her "nicely"... but then well, it's their child, and they know better 😐

i did not share tht hild's video. Somewhere we re so insecure that we share about how horrible other people are and how nice we are and then we open it for judgement for the rest oof the world. Thats highly inappropriate. We are the people who mke things viral.

mujhe to lgta h bche pdhne k time nautnki krte hi hain mostly. nd sirf ye vdo dekh k v can't say nything ki kaun galat tha. but yes that vdo was stressful.

This singer said tht the video ws meant fr the family, but got leaked, to show the members tht the girl can put on so much drama, n she ws absolutely fine the minute after. We don't know the truth but circulating a personal video is just wrong
