Meet 21 year old Satyapal Kumar, a pass out from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (Kaimur) who is a multi-tasker to say the least. Satyapal is a state-level silver medalist in Yoga and a passionate tabla player. He is also a social media influencer.
Satyapal belongs to Sasaram, which lies in the Rohtas district of Bihar. This young kid is the founder of a community called Shoutout_4_Bihar. He started this community along with friend Ajay Kumar in March this year. The objective of this initiative is to provide a platform to artists from all parts of Bihar.
“I started this because I felt the need of one common space where artists of different talents from urban and rural parts of the state can come together and showcase their work,” said Satyapal to The Vent Machine.
In a short span of 4 months, Shoutout_4_Bihar has garnered more than 11K followers on Instagram. I asked him about his journey so far. “Actually, social media came in the picture later. Extensive ground work was done to make our presence strong. We conducted various talent shows to bring artists together and that eventually led to this rocketed popularity on social media,” he explained.
Besides being an art enthusiast, Satyapal is a medical aspirant. He plans to become a doctor and serve those in need by providing medical services. I must say that I am in awe of this young man’s intentions, motives and thought process. Satyapal is a tight slap on the face of those who think that the “millennial generation” is shallow and short-sighted.
