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

Image by author, edited with the help of canva

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…

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.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” — Dr Seuss

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…

Recapping old good days till today, here is why the path of vocal-ization may not be a fruitful strategy for the Medium community

When I first read about Medium Writers Challenge, I was like, seriously? Has Medium changed its path of reaching new people?

Their Medium Partner Program was going fine till September 2019 (there was a small loophole which I will explain later in this post). Then for a change and wide coverage, they reduced overall writers earnings. Instead, they paid editors of partner publications and they guaranteed minimum earning to articles published on Medium owned publications.

It was clear it didn’t go well.

If you would ask me the source of facts and figures, I don’t have many details, but it…

Hey Family,
I hope you are doing well.

Suraj Ghimire here.

The temperature in France has risen to 35° celsius. Back home I had faced higher temperatures than this, but still this 35° celsius seems to be unbearable. I have a hope there will be some rain and it gives much coolness we need.

How are things on your side?

Is there a way to repent?

Back in 1993, Kevin Carter, a photographer, captured an image of a struggling malnourished girl. He intended to show the ground condition of malnourished children in Sudan, but people around the world widely criticized him for a well-known reason.

Even though this picture offered him an award, Kevin Carter took a path of suicide to end his life.

These are the days where every one of us has a beautiful camera and cheap internet services. We enjoy our fascinating journey with a click that remains as a memory for days to come.

A food story

Picture by author

Ever since I came to France as a student, I tried my best not to eat outside. I knew a few cooking skills, so I mostly took self-made food most of the time, including lunchtime for my university days.

Cooking for myself every day, and even for lunchtime, was hectic, but I had no choice, especially when I had no regular source of income.

One lunch at the university canteen would cost around 3.3 euros. At this cost, I could prepare two to three meals. I am sure most South Asian students understand this story.

However, the last six months…

Dearest Family,

I share my first top writer tag achievement to motivate you

Picture by author

It has been 24 months since I started surfing and writing on Medium. This platform has been a part of my life, and I have learnt many lessons about blogging and writing. I published over 125 stories, and I am also an editor of the publication Dreams and Stories.

I have improved on different aspects of writing. I have been able to connect with many like-minded people. But if you would ask me about my monthly stats and how much my article has earned, I would have no answer.

My highest earning salary to date is my personal story of…


Can this question redefine brand’s strategy in how they reach audience?

Have you ever searched for a life hack technique to peel the green skin of cucumber? What do you think is the best way to separate the yolk from an egg? Any idea about the easiest way to cut pizza?

Every day we spend our time searching for complicated things, hoping we make our life easier. But adapting those tricks and hacks can be costlier, and even the result in itself can be more complicated than we think.

From the marketing perspective, brands are looking for the most innovative methods to market their products. …
