cashier-mocked Senior cashier who was mocked on social media for being slow | Screengrab

Remember the viral video posted on Facebook mocking a woman cashier for being slow? Many laughed and criticized her for being very slow that too in a bank where busy transactions take place.

The video which was posted last week titled 'fastest cashier in the world' was shared on social media by around 2 lakh users and viewed by 14 million users.

But there is always the other side of the story. Here's the inspirational truth of Premlatha Shinde and it's not really funny.

Kundan Srivastava, a human right activist has shared a Facebook post narrating the other side of her story.

Premlatha Shinde, a senior cashier at Bank of Maharashtra branch in Pune has already survived two heart attacks and a paralytic stroke. Yes, she is slow. The video shows the cashier receiving the slips, checking everything and accounting it in a very slow pace.

According to Kundan Srivastava's post, Premlata is to retire in February 2017 and has survived a stroke and heart attacks. But the senior cashier decided to work even if she had enough leaves to take. She would have got her salary till her retirement, instead, she wanted to finish her service honorably. “Premlata was given an extra cash counter just so she can work at her own pace while customers can continue getting the service at the usual counter”, says the Facebook post.

Premlata's husband is no more and has a son who lives abroad. It seems she has undergone most of her medical treatment by herself.

Time to understand that anything you see is not worth promoting. There could be the better side of it. So, don't you think it's time to put a stop now?
