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 financial support to his family while bringing his talents on social media. This followed wide national coverage, and Sachin got viral in no time. Not only YouTubers, national television also promoted him. YouTuber supported his family…

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…

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end — Ecclesiastes 3:11, The Holy Bible (NIV)

A week back I saw a Twitter post that talked about “House for sale”. The picture of the house on sale mesmerized me. Wow! What a beautiful house it is!

Houses in Nepal are more like a bungalow. Nepalese haven’t yet adopted a system of flat. People buy a piece of land for themselves, build and furnish/decorate homes as per their financial status…

Vocal Media is known for organizing contests with prize money. Its prize money is huge. The most appealing part about vocal contest is contest keeps coming there.

They have contests from poetry to fiction, which is a treat for many aspiring writers.

However, to take part in most of the contests, you might need vocal+ membership. It costs you $10 per month or $99 per year.

Vocal Media is giving away 2 months of free Vocal+ membership which might be a good option for you to try if this platform works for you. …

Remembering good travel from old days

Switzerland was one of my dream destinations. After arriving in France, it still took a year and a half to go outside the borders, but it was worth it. Thankfully, it has been the only instance of crossing the French border for me. I hope to travel to Geneva again.

Let me share some beautiful pictures of Geneva that I clicked in December 2019. It was a Christmas day and everything was closed. Despite that, it was a good day to visit the beautiful lake and amazing lights.

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.

The socio-economic conditions of people below the poverty…
