Will YouTube act against viral videos targeted at children, the LGBTQ community, and women?

Sachin Pariyar, a nine-year kid from a rural part of Nepal, comes from a financially backward community. He had to drop school in the second standard because his parents couldn’t afford education. Even at the early stage of life, this kid has a sense of humor, and he sings beautifully. He is funny, and he is entertaining.

A YouTube Channel that noticed Sachin gave covered him and gave financial support to his family. This followed wide national coverage, and Sachin got viral in no time. Not only YouTubers, national television also promoted him. YouTuber supported his family to start a…


Do your best and let angels do the rest

I thought Santa Claus doesn’t exist, but I was wrong. When I was a child, I recognized those faces in the church dressed in red with a hat and pretending to be Santa Claus. They would come during Christmas service to share chocolates, to make us happy. We would then whisper, “He is one of our church elders, not a Santa Claus.” As I grew, I thought Santa Claus is an illusion for happiness and nothing else.

Smile again. Rise again.

We smile, we cry
And we smile again.
Yes, not for the only reason.

We make promises;
we break them
and we make a few more.
Yes, not for the only reason.

If someone snatches your happiness,
Let them not win.
Life is not just about one smile.
My friend, it is not the end.
Do not be sad.

If someone breaks a commitment
Let them not win.
Life is not about one promise.
My friend, it is not the end.
Do not mourn.

You have many more…


Also, for writers who rely on Medium’s payment for their bread

A Game Changer Move By Medium. Picture by Author.

A month back, in an article, Eight Advice To Medium From a Well-Wisher, I had written how Medium’s partner program had disappointed writers over the last two years. Those changes in MPP had left them hopeless, and many left writing on Medium. At the same time, Newsbreak fixed contract and Vocal Media’s big prize money was the talk of the town, leaving uncertainty, “Where is Medium heading?”

Big names were earning in multiple thousands, but many distributed stories were limited to double-digit views for many writers. Not more than 7% of writers enrolled in MPP earned over $100. …

Dear Family,

I, Suraj, want to start this newsletter by narrating a short local story I heard during my childhood in Nepal. It is about a man who traded his mother’s life to get his love.

A man deeply loved a girl but wasn’t able to convince his love to his lady. One day she asked how much he loves her. The man said he loves her so much and can do anything to prove his love for her. She said, “Okay, I ask you one thing, and if you do it, I will marry you. …


In the world of technology, there are many things which we don't understand. But yes, we can relate all of them to our supernatural God, with the hope, whatever happens, happens for Good.

Thank you for writing about this prompt.

Hey Family,

This is Suraj again

I hope you had a blessed Easter Service.

On the third day of his death, the resurrected Jesus Christ gave new hope to people who believe him as a savior. I hope this Easter brings hope, love, and peace to your family.

As I previously mentioned in my earlier newsletter, I started my final semester internship. It's been a prolonged journey. While I travel daily to the lab, I am astounded by the beautiful surroundings and climate I see from a tram. Every day is a bright and wonderful day. …


Thank you for sharing 6 free resources to learn coding in 2021. Some other free resources I have used to learn code are Sololearn (mobile app), Kaggle for data science projects. I found stacksoverflow and w3school quite helpful resources to clear our doubts.


Medium is more than a dream, and it needs to survive. Medium needs to grow

I joined Medium in August 2019. I have seen many broken heart writers leaving the platform because the algorithm didn’t benefit them. Medium brought some change in their partner program, which badly affected earning of writers, and they left. While some writers are earning exceptionally high, this platform is a mystery for many others.

I recently saw a post by Ev Williams, who announced a leadership change to the Medium editorial. I think this change was bound to happen, eventually. …
