Finding Inspiration on Youtube
The internet holds all sorts of gems...
Greetings from Haryana, India!
Youtube is the 2nd biggest search engine after Google. Nowadays, if anyone wants to learn something, they try to find a video about it on Youtube. Gone are the days when learning was restricted to those with privileged education.
Most of what I've learnt about the fields I am interested in (Nature, Photography, Art, Culture) has been through Youtube. Over the years, I have identified creators in each area who produce top-notch quality content. Here I will share some of my findings.
Youtube has empowered people from all across the globe to share their knowledge with the world. All you need is a smartphone and an internet connection, and you can get your message out to millions. We must acknowledge the power of such an idea.
Maybe I'll start a Youtube channel someday. Who knows?

"Locked in combat, the snake twisted and turned while the frog, powered by its long hind legs, pushed on.
After what seemed like an eternity, the wrestling had ended with no apparent winner. The snake stayed put, without a care in the world. The frog, though, held on for dear life.
It seemed like a stalemate. There was no way the thin snake could swallow such large prey, or so I thought..."
