These a days lot many kids are creating their own youtube channels. I have come past through many channels offering very little useful information. Whereas, a few popular ones are not really the ones created by kids. Being a parent, it is very important for us to know what youtube channel our kids are watching. We need to know the language, the content and most of all we should have a trust on the host of youtube channel.
Recently I came across a very useful youtube channel called Aarya’s Abode. The channel is run by an Indian kid of ten to eleven year old. In her accented voice, she keeps on giving suggestions, tips on the things that matter to kids. Aarya also runs a website at http://www.aaryasabode.com
There are to dos, recipes, kid games, suggestions and life hacks etc. One of the video that I liked most of her channel was about a trip to Bondla wildlife sanctuary. This is a place in Goa. Goa is popular tourist destination, mainly famous for its beaches. I am surprised from where Aarya did get to know about Bondla Zoo. If you are visiting Goa in Monsoon, Bondla Zoo is absolute must.
There are myth buster videos as well. Few months ago there was wide spread rumor of plastic rice in India. People were getting really scared of China producing and sending plastic rice to India. There were videos claiming that in normal rice, shopkeepers are mixing plastic rice. Rice being India’s primary food, people were in real panic mode. There were people who were making rice ball and throwing it on ground to show it bouncing and hence claiming that rice did contain plastic. Aarya went ahead, procured very fresh rice from farm, boiled, then made a ball of this rice. Then she threw it on the floor. Guess what? Even this ball was bouncing. Hence proved that any ball will bounce – plastic ball or pure rice ball as well. Myself belonging to south India, this was a real good news. I eat rice in breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The owner of channel is from North India Lucknow region. The place is famous for its Awadhi cuisine. Many of you might be aware that India got hundreds of languages and thousands of cuisines. The other day she came out with a recipe for Shahi Tukda. Shahi Tukda is a very popular dessert in India. Aarya showed a recipe of making it in just 5 minutes.
There are few other videos as well. I think her most popular video was Maggie Pizza. In India every kid loves Magi and every kid loves pizza. Aarya combined both of these to make Maggie Pizza. I tried it at home and everyone simply loved it.
Aarya Tripathi can also be reached at her blog.
I wish her best of luck for the future of her youtube channel.
