Millions across the world have been forced to stay indoors due to the novel coronavirus pandemic that has also led to changes in daily routines for people across age groups. While lakhs of students across the country are studying online, a six-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir is not too happy with classes that stretch for long hours. She has decided to raise the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Aurangzeb Naqshbandi, a journalist, shared her video and wrote, “A six-year-old Kashmiri girl’s complaint to PM Narendra Modi regarding long hours of online classes and too much school work.”
In the 45-second clip, the girl says her classes begin at 10 am and continue till 2 pm.
She says, “There is English, Mathematics, Urdu and EVS. And then there is computer class as well”.
“There’s so much work for kids,” the young girl said, using hand gestures to show the stress she faces every day.
“Why do small kids have to deal with so much work, Modi Sahab?” the kid asked. After a few seconds of silence, she said, “What can be done? Assalamualaikum, Modi Sahab, Bye.”
