At a time when more and more people constantly complain saying they don't feel “motivated” at work more often than not, we also come across those who show us what the phrase “work is worship” stands for.
A traffic cop from Assam is being hailed as a prime example of what real dedication looks like on a person.
Constable Mithun Das has quickly turned into an internet sensation after he was seen performing his duty, as he manned the traffic in a heavy rainstorm without a raincoat or even an umbrella to save him from the heavy downpour.
Assam Police shared a post of appreciation on their Twitter handle, praising Das for his devotion and selfless service.
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.

Clad in his work uniform, constable Das stood at his post, right in the middle of a busy intersection and ensured that the cars moved smoothly while he is there.
“My duty hours were from 7 am to 12 pm. The storm started around 5 minutes before noon, but since my replacement hadn't come, I continued my job in the rain for nearly 20 minutes,” Das told the media.
Special DGP (Law & Order) Kuladhar Saikia also praised constable Das' efforts and called him an inspiration.

Kudos to the constable for his outstanding sincerity towards his duty but on the other hand is it not necessary to keep a rain gear for so called smart police of Guwahati city.— Kumar Kashyap Konwar (@KonwarKashyap) April 1, 2019
