There is no doubt that the internet has come a long, long way from how it started back in 1983 (the year officially known as the Internet’s birth year). Today, due to its easy accessibility (and added utility), media consumption over the internet has soared significantly and continues to grow year on year. There’s hardly anything that can’t be found on the internet using our smartphones. Aside from the utility aspect of surfing the net, it’s BIG on entertainment. People are hooked on the ever-evolving online entertainment space - and YOUTUBE is an indispensable component of it. From funny memes to well-researched tutorials (and every other genre in between), YouTube has got everything covered. 

The ingenuity of the brand however isn’t the platform in itself. Rather, it lies with the YouTube creators’ community who have been contributing to the video streaming platform using creativity, innovation, and authenticity since 2005. They are the ones who continue to create well-rounded videos on various genres including learning& motivation, productivity & lifestyle, travel & food, music & tech, and so on.

 Be it for the purpose of learning new things, listening to new/old music, or watching funny videos, the YouTube platform houses an enormous amount of content contributed by different types of creators, utilizing their respective skills & expertise. But it wasn’t until a few years back since the youths of Assam joined the global creators’ community on YouTube and started gaining popularity.

 Since then, several youngsters from Assam have been attempting to establish their respective brands on the popular video-streaming platform, YouTube. But only a few among them have been able to successfully set themselves apart through their unique content creation style.
