Want to be a professional cricketer?
A few days ago, a video of a toddler sobbing and clenching her teeth in frustration after being unable to cope with a strict study session at home went viral. It received widespread criticism.
People stood with a united opinion that it was cruelty. Even Indian skipper Virat Kohli felt sad about it and posted an Instagram message condemning such tactics.
Girl belongs to a popular family
The child was later identified as Haya and was revealed to be the niece of popular singers Toshi and Sharib Sabri. The intensity of the reaction on the video meant media quickly reached out to the do for a statement justifying the whole situation.
The singers supported her mother and conceded that the entire has been blown out of proportion. It was just a case of their niece Haya was behaving stubbornly.
Kohli and Dhawan don’t our kids
Speaking about the reaction from Kohli and Dhawan, Toshi said that the kids are different by nature and need to be treated accordingly in order to raise them properly.
He also defined Haya’s nature is very all-rounder and multifaceted wherein after being scolded, she would runs off to play and if not pushed hard, she will refuse to study.
The video was made by Haya’s mother to show her brothers and husband about her stubborn behavior.
“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. (We know about our child better. Haya’s nature is such that after being scolded, the next minute she runs off to play. But, because of her nature if we don’t push her, she won’t study.)
“Woh jo rona hota hain, woh us moment ke liye tha taaki uski maa use padaaye na aur khelne de. Chota bachcha hai 2.5-3 saal ka. (All the crying was for that moment so that her mother doesn’t make her study and let her play. Haya is just about 3 years old). It’s not a big issue. Har ghar mein bachon ki alag zidd hoti hai, alag-alag tareeke ke bachche hote hain. [Ye] bachchi bahut zyada ziddi hai [lekin] humari laadli hai. (In every house there are a different kind of children. Ours is a very stubborn child but is extremely dear to us)”
“Ek maa ki mamta hai, judgment nahi kar sakte hain. Jisne usko 9 months kokh mein rakha hai. Ab agar bachche zidd karenge toh unko padana likhana chod dein kya? Bachon ko paalna asaan nahi hota. (One can’t judge a mother’s love for the child by seeing a short video. If children throw tantrums, then should we stop teaching them? It’s not easy to raise children). I’m married and have a son. I know how difficult it is to raise a child. Parents have to do double duty by managing both — the children and the household at the same time”
