Bhubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday praised Odia YouTuber Isak Munda in his 79th Mann Ki Baat programme.
“Isak Munda ji, living in a village in Sambalpur district of Odisha, used to work as a daily wage labourer but now he has become an internet sensation. He is earning a lot of money from his YouTube channel,” said Modi.
“In his videos he shows prominently the local dishes, traditional ways of cooking, his village, his lifestyle, family and food habits,” said Modi.
His journey as a YouTuber began in March 2020 when he posted a video related to Pakhal, the famous local dish of Odisha.
“Since then, he has posted hundreds of videos. This effort of his is different for many reasons. Specially because through this, people living in cities get a chance to watch the lifestyle about which they don’t know much. Isaak Munda ji is celebrating by blending culture and cuisine equally and inspiring us too,” the PM said.
