A few days back, a video of a lady cashier at Pune branch of the Bank of Maharashtra went viral on social media. In the video, a woman is seen going about her work very slowly. Soon, she became a subject of ridicule on social media. But, after the truth that has emerged, people who made fun of her would end up being embarrassed.

The video went viral after a Facebook user posted a video on October 24 with the caption ‘Fastest cashier in the world’. It has now been learnt that the cashier, Premlata Shinde, had suffered a paralysis stroke and two heart attacks. According to reports, she had gotten back to work only a week before the video went viral.

A social activist, Kundan Srivastava, brought out the truth, and hit out at Balaraju Somisetty, who posted the original video, and gave details about her actual condition.

Srivastava's post reads as follows

The nonsense man Bala Raju, shared a video on October 24, 2016 without having a little respect for women & senior citizen and criticized saying her 'Fastest cashier in the world.' spreads like a wildfire over 4.9 million views, 149,203 shares and 72k likes. HOW NONSENSE? I urge every human being, please share this video for the victory of good over evil. For that only we celebrate 'Diwali'.

Let me tell the truth to all the brainless people who is making fun of her.

She is Premlata Shinde, retiring in Feb 2017 from 'Bank of Maharashtra', Pune. So far she has survived a paralysis stroke and 2 heart attacks. She had just resumed her duties after a prolonged duration of leave for treatment. She has enough leaves stocked up that she can avail them and continue getting paid at home till her retirement. But, she wants to finish her service period honorably. So her branch staff set up an extra cash counter just so she can work at her own pace while customers can continue getting the service at the usual counter.

But some unaware customer ended up at that counter and made this video. Also, her only son lives abroad with wife and child and can only visit for limited duration. It is said that she has undergone most of her medical treatment by herself.

Hats off to all the women of our nation who are striving and working hard making all our lives and our nation move ahead.

Facebook later deleted the video posted by Balaraju Somisetty.

Srivastava received praise on Facebook for coming out with the truth behind the video.

So, next time you share a video that’s mocking someone, think twice. It may not be what it seems.
