In an epic case of dedication towards one’s job, a traffic constable, Mithun Das, set an exceptional example in Guwahati on Sunday afternoon as he braved blinding rain to perform his duty on the road, sans a raincoat or any kind of shelter. As the skies opened up and made people rush for nearest cover, Constable Mithun Das performed his duty with exemplary dedication,
Standing in the Basistha area in Guwahati, Mithun was recorded controlling the busy traffic without a raincoat. The video was captured by a local resident, Banajeet Deka, who posted it on his Twitter handle, from where it went viral. The video caught the attention of the Assam police and even Assam DGP, Kula Saikia, both of whom retweeted the video on their respective handles on the micro-blogging site. While the Assam police captioned the video as, “Dedication is thy name! We salute AB Constable Mithun Das (Basistha PS) of @GuwahatiPol , for his exceptional devotion towards duty and showing us how dedication can turn a storm into a sprinkle. Kudos! Video Courtesy: Banajeet Deka” (sic), the DGP retweeted their post and captioned it, “The visuals of the traffic Constable Mithun Das (Basistha PS) are truly inspirational. I personally talked to him and conveyed my appreciations. I also hail all the @assampolice Personnel like him, who stand against such adversities everyday, without being recorded.” (sic)
The video has hooked Twitterati, who can’t stop hailing him as “Superman of Assam” amidst showering other praiseworthy titles. While one Twitter user wrote, “Assam’s SUPERMAN Mithun Das, love you bro, in this video u stand like a rock Man, proud of you” (sic), another called him, “Ye h asli Choukidar” (sic) and yet another wrote in his concern, “He is duty minded and my sincere wishes to him. Instead of only appreciating him, I request police department to provide suitable wear for these bravados else they will have health issues sooner or later.” (sic)

While we salute Mithun for the dedication he showed towards his job, we are sure many of us are taking a motivational lesson back from the video, to be as sincere in our jobs and outshine others when it comes to performing our duties.
