We all have stories of meeting famous people. These people can be actors or singers or politicians, but our experiences with them leave us with an impression on our life. Recently one Indian girl shared her story of how she met an Indian politician and what he said to her, However some Indians reacted angrily.
Her story :
In a video recently posted to social media, which you can watch by clicking on the link below, a young Indian girl talks about how she was insulted by an indian politician as a child.
She explains that she went to a funfair, where Rajbansi was having a competition for children. She took part in it by dancing. However even though she won (because everyone who took part won) when Rajbansi was handing her the prize he said something hurtful.
According to her, he handed her a dolly with lemons on it and said "A lemon Dolly for you, because you have a sour face".
She expresses that she was very hurt by this, because he was "her people". Later that month he came to her school and even though Children can't vote, she claimed that she told her whole school not to vote for him.
Even though her story was meant to be more humorous than anything else, Indian South Africans were still angry at this. Here's what some of them had to say.
As we can see, there were a lot of people who told her to get over it. However this was her story to tell and I'm glad she told it.
