His success rainbows like radiant sunshine that barely meets shades of dark clouds, which clearly defines his achievements beyond people’s imagination! In his words, he mentions:

“I want to build other channels like beast gaming and beast reacts so that I can run my main channel at a loss and grow as big as possible. And then use my main channels influence to one day open hundreds of homeless shelters/food banks and give away all the money. …

This is life’s story
Starts with time; and
Ends with time.

Every moment each hour
Time is everyone’s priceless stick
Sometimes changing like the weather
Sometimes radiant like sunshine
“Time” is Life’s prestigious art
Embracing us with meaningful teachings.

Two steps ahead few steps behind
Sometimes running to win
Sometimes owing up after failing
To Life’s every taste
Taught us by time.

Time is like the monumental door
Which connects and is connected to every soul
Time is life’s invincible truth
Bringing us to the path
Where the silence of mind oughts out; and
A musical thought keeps reflecting
In today’s century, everyone peddles with lack of time. …

“I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.” — Haruki Murakami

The events in life are weirdly strange. At several instances, if the emotions remain unchecked, not acknowledged in detail and unregulated, then these tumultuous states generate feelings that can leave relationships weakened.

“Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token save it from that ruin which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and young, would be inevitable.”— Hannah Arendt, ‘The Crisis in Education’

Education is at the centre of everything that advances goodness in the world. It helps derive meaningfulness behind everything. In life, it becomes imperative that we keep learning. Furthermore, taking responsibility for educating oneself and spreading knowledge helps life evolve individually and benefit humankind collectively.

Ancient scholars have always focussed on the importance of education. It is through this that they made incredible inventions and historical discoveries — some of which we still wonder about. In all, the ancient scholars laid a foundation for education to transcend, transform, and broaden its horizons through each evolutionary cycle. …

Decorum in the world of the living
Beneath the cloud
And underneath the moonlit spring
Gazing upright to the stars in light
The fragrance in the arena bloom
A benign — Beats of Solitude.

A moot holds in relation to Solitude
It's not loneliness but a musical beat in tune
Solitude is the parlance of self-belief
A musical humming to an individuals speech
Defunct of loneliness
Solitude is a caress affection of self.

Amnesty in the world of dark
Guide in the light of the unfounded path
To the beats of solitude
Strings from the heart within
Ensembles an optimistic meaning
And the arrays rainbows like a florid spark. …
