YouTube Vs TikTok - A Waste of Time

YouTube Vs TikTok - A Waste of Time

In 2017, when I wan in Bangalore, I saw my roommate Nikas was watching a video where the person was abusing someone. For the first time, I couldn't imagine what was going on, but I enjoyed it. It's the normal human tendency to see the bravery in movies and it was like that.

After that, he suggested me to watch some more videos and obviously I watched some. Then I completed watching all of his videos from the QnA videos to the community guideline strike, everything and came to know more about him.

Then, I saw some of his interview videos; in some of his interview, he had explained about that video, where he roasted BB Ki Vines aka Bhuvan Bam and how he got 1K views in his first and in another interview I saw how Bhuvan explained everything, how he supported him, how he talked to him and appreciate that.

But, till that time, I was unable to understand how a teenager could use such languages in public, where he mentioned that, his mother uses to watch all of his videos 1st before releasing on YouTube. He, I mean Carry Minati aka Ajey Nagar belongs to Faridabad, Delhi where such words are common and they are okay with that. So, it was cool with him and his family. 

But now why I'm talking about him? Because of his record-breaking video on some Tik Tok users, which is taken down by the YouTube community from YouTube. Here, I'm going to explain about the actual marketing plan within that.

I've watched all his videos, so I know whom he roasted and how all reacted at that time and then how they became friends. While Carry roasted BB Ki Vines, Bhuvan took positively and while he roasted Dhinchak Pooja, she used him properly and got millions of views on YouTube.

Now, he did the same thing, he abused Aamir Siddiqui and some others, where the fight now became Carry Minati vs Tik Tok. This video got lots of views and carry got more than 6 million subscribers in a few days. Here Carry Minati broke the record to gain the highest subscribers within 24 hours.

All YouTube users started saying the same thing about his video and now the internet community divided into 3 parts; the 1st one supporting YouTube, 2nd one supporting Tik Tok, and the 3rd one is supporting both.

I even didn't know who is Aamir Siddiqui, but now lots of people knew about him and another user Mr. Faisu started his YouTube channel and got more than 400K subscribers within a few days and his 1st vlog video is trending on no1 at some region also.

How could his 1st video got such views and trending on rank 1? It's just because of this video by Carry Minati and others on YouTube. All the social media news channels, even some other news channels are also talking about them. This video got more than 1.2 million dislikes also, but the YouTube algorithm doesn't see the like and dislike ratio, it matters about views and ultimately he is getting views.

Now the question is, why they are doing this? Carry Minati previously said, he is doing all these roasts with the proper permission and I think here there is something like that and all are taking benefits from that. But the big question is why YouTube deleted that?

It's because there are some questionable things, but I think those people had played a game at the proper time. Carry's video was going to make a world record, most liked non-music video every on YouTube.

At the time of T-Series vs Pewdiepie, the whole American community supported Pewdiepie against T-Series and all promoted his channel and requested to subscribe. Even someone flew a helicopter with a flag to subscribe Pewdiepie.

At this time, they might play some games like this and deleted the video while it was about to touch 10 million likes. But what our people are doing? Whey we all are shouting here like dogs?

Here Carry and other YouTubers are getting views and those Tik Tok users are increasing their fan base and what these people are shouting like fools? These people are wasting their time and obviously promoting them.

8Yrs Of Gabbar Singh Hysteria is Trending on No 3

When Dabang of Salman Khan was released all were doing that Dabang dance and the glass style, putting it backside hanging from the shirt collar. Even, I did that in some photos which you may find on my Facebook page.

But the big breaking news came when Pawan Kalay had done the remake of Dabang as Gabbar Singh. The style and the punch dialogues made the fans mad. Though I couldn't understand the Telugu Language, I watch is with the sub-titles. As much as I love the role of Pawan Kalyan, I love the character of Brahmanandam Garu in the film.

I have watched it more than 20 times. Every time, the charm increases more. And we all were waiting for the next part, Sardar Gabbar Singh. It came with a totally different story and also with a new heroine Kajal Agrawal. But, I didn't like the 2nd part as much as I like the 1st part.

But, who cares about the story when the Power Star himself in the film. So, we watched the full movie, but not as many as times with the 1st one.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a celebration for honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. This was started from United States in the 20th Century.

In the United States and other western countries, most families are busy with their personal work, but here our mothers are always busy her child, for her family. They celebrate this to honoring their mother and we are also following that thing. I never oppose people who are inspiring from other's cultures.

I came to know about this day from social media. Actually, these social media helps to celebrate lots of days from earth day to mother's day and father's day. I never say 'Happy Mother's Day' to my mother, because she doesn't need that.

If you come to your mother on a single day only to wish her and rest 364 days are west. So, I'm here with her to help her, for her and for us, all 365 days are the Mother's day, Son's Day, Family Day, everything.

Today, I'm sharing her photo with my sister which was clicked on sister's marriage day.

I Wear Sambalpuri Handloom

I Wear Sambalpuri Handloom

A few days back, while I was scrolling my Twitter Timeline, I have noticed some tweets from some handles with the hashtag #IWearSambalpuriHandloom, so I thought I should post one photo of mine with a Sambalpuri shirt.

Unfortunately, I have only one Sambalpuri shirt with me from 2010, which is the one and only Sambalpuri Shirt in my life till now. At that time, I was wearing that one, so I just went out of my room and clicked a photo with a little bit of sunshine.


In 2011, my mother had made this shirt for my 16th birthday and at that time, I was not fit for me and I hadn't liked this shirt in those days. But later in my engineering time, I wore this sometimes and still it's fit.

In February 2020, when I was in Delhi for the LangFest 2020, I met Niladri Bihari Nayak Bhai there, he was wearing a nice Sambalpuri kurta with a jacket, I love that and planned to make an exact copy of that, even the color. But due to lockdown, I could prepare it.


The Sambalpuri cloth has its own charm, which you could see from the photo above. It's too decent and gives full attractiveness and overall a gentle look.

For a Massive Hit, all We need is a story and the effort in making

For a Massive Hit, all We need is a story and the effort in making

In March 2020, the Ramayan cast members Arun Govil, Dipika Chikhlia, and Sunil Lahri with Prem Sagar came to The Kapil Sharma's Show to celebrate 30 years of Ramayana by late director Ramananda Sagar.

By that time, the CoronaVirus pandemic started in India and after the Janta Carfue on 22nd March, we all are at home for the LockDown to break the chain of coronavirus. So, Doordarshan planned to re-telecast the old mythological serials again on DD National and DD Bharati.

In my +2 English textbook, we read the autobiography of Ramananda Sagar on Ramayan Serial making and the reactions he got during that time. There, he mentioned how people came to visit his house to watch Ramayan on TV, who didn't have any idea about the creator of the show. Then when I saw that episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, telecasted on Sony TV, it feels really proud.

In that show, Prem Sagar had narrated how they planned to make the Ramayan and how they face problems during the shooting period and how they created the animation in those days, where there were no such advanced techniques to create the high standard VFX.

I heard some people who crack jokes on such series with no VFX and the 2D animation used for a 3D visualization. But, a few days back when we saw the news that Ramayan broke all the records of the visitor worldwide, that moment I realize the facts for a massive hit.

All we know the story of Ramayan, but still we all watch this series. Most of our people had watched it before on TV and also on YouTube, but they still watch it on TV.

Ramanand Sagar had dreamed to make this series with all those types of equipment they had and he did that with his team. Later we saw lots of Ramayan and Hanuman series with huge graphics work and VFX as well as some newly added stories.

Nowadays, the mythological serials are made up of the stories written by the marketing team. So, they are making it to make more money while Ramanand Sagar had skipped lots of things just for lack of references. Now we are watching time travel and lots of bullshit with the original scripts.

Ramanand Sagar had shown the exact Ramayan with proper characterization and finished the 7 parts of Ramayan in just 78 episodes, whereas the recent Ramayan series may take 78 episodes up to the born of Lord Rama.

Today, we watched the final episode of Uttar Ramayan or the whole Ramayan, where I saw my parents' eyes full of tears. I bet you, if you watched it properly then you must have been cried at least once when Bharat said bye to his brother at the beginning of the Banabas and the end song performed by Lav and Kush at the court of Lord Ramachandra in Ayodhya.

Ramanand Sagar is no more to see this great success again, but we love you, sir, for making this masterpiece. Thanks to the Doordarshan for retelecasting this one and giving us a chance to live in that era of Rama.

Ramanand Sir noted in his story which we read in college that, they were staying in a jungle, where all were calling themselves with the character names and now, we were staying within that campus.
