A viral video shows a woman sitting on the floor of a moving metro with a toddler on her lap. It has led to a debate online.

IAS officer Awanish Sharan shared a video of a woman sitting with a toddler on her lap on the floor of a moving metro. While someone is travelling in public transport, it is basic decency to offer your seat to an elderly person or a person with a toddler in their arms. However, nobody in that situation seemed to have remembered that fact. In the video, several other women can be seen seated around the woman on the floor. “Your degree is just a piece of paper, if it is not reflected in your behavior,” reads the caption of the video. Have a look:

The video has now gone viral and started a debate on Twitter. While many believed that such behaviour is wrong and slammed the passengers, there were others who said that the mother might have sat on the floor by choice because it was more “comfortable” for her.

“We grew up in Kolkata, taught to always stand up and give our seat (in a bus or a tram car) to a woman irrespective of whether she had a child in her arms or not, whether she was old or young. It was called manners in our time,” commented a Twitter user. Another person wrote, “For how long we will remain insensitive and inhumane? All the women around yet no one offered a seat.”

Here are a few reactions:
