Two days ago, Indian captain Virat Kohli posted a clip on his Instagram account, which went viral in a few minutes. The video showed a woman forcibly trying to teach a kid. Kohli lashed out at the woman for taking such measures. Apart from Kohli, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan also posted the clip and criticized the terrorizing act. Veteran cricketer Yuvraj Singh and Robin Uthappa also shared the same and raised their voice against such a practice.
It has been identified that the little kid in the video is singer Toshi’s 3-year old niece, Haya. The video went viral and everyone was talking about the way the activity was conducted. Toshi is an Indian singer and music composer. He shot to fame after singing the song’ Maahi’ from the 2009 Bollywood movie Raaz.
Toshi fires back at Virat
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Toshi said, “Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan don’t know about us. 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.”
He added that it’s important for the child to learn, and it’s okay for one to overlook the tantrums of the child if it’s the question of education. “The homework she gets in nursery, of learning numbers, she’ll never be able to learn.”
“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),” Toshi said.
