It is often said that circumstances can teach a person everything they need to know. This rings true for Kiran Paste, who resides in Chunabhatti, Mumbai. Café Marathi recently released an inspiring live interview with Kiran Paste as part of their Inspire Series. The interview sheds light on Kiran’s remarkable journey from being a sweeper to becoming a successful YouTuber, which serves as a source of inspiration for today’s younger generation.
Kiran, who grew up in a poverty-stricken home in Chuna Bhatti, struggled to find his direction in life. However, after completing 12th grade, he developed a passion for fitness training. Unfortunately, the cost of gym membership was out of his reach. A friend suggested Kiran enroll in a therapy course, but he did not have the money to do so. To pay for the course, Kiran worked as a sweeper in a press for several months. He eventually saved up enough money to complete the course and began visiting different gyms. Although he secured a job, the salary was not enough to cover his expenses. Kiran then landed a well-paying job in an urban company, and he felt that everything was going well. However, the pandemic hit, and everything came to a halt.
During the lockdown, Kiran began making daily videos on TikTok, and one of them went viral. As TikTok was banned in India, Kiran shifted to YouTube, starting with Instagram reels and YouTube videos. Over time, his YouTube subscribers increased, and he started receiving recognition and good pay. Kiran emphasizes that his journey was far from easy, requiring continuity, hard work, a willingness to learn new techniques, and, once success is achieved, a readiness to work twice as hard to maintain it.
Kiran’s story is a testament to the fact that, despite facing adversity, one can achieve their dreams through determination and hard work. His interview on Café Marathi’s YouTube channel is a must-watch for anyone seeking inspiration.
