Speaking in an interview with Barcroft, K. Laxman said that:
“On a hungry night, my friends and I prepared some food for ourselves, and we thought about starting a YouTube channel so that people could watch and learn from these cooking tutorials. Our first video went viral surprisingly. That was when I decided to run this channel, to get people to know and understand the traditional way of cooking with fresh ingredients, with the help of my grandmother. She didn’t know what was happening when we were filming the videos, but when she started to realise it, she felt euphoric,” says K. Laxman to Barcroft.
Everyone in the village adores her delicious food.
The oldest YouTuber in the world, 106-year-old, is an expert in making seafood and egg dosas.
The centenarian has once again proved to an entire world that it is never too late to initiate any endeavour, no matter how novel and strange it is to us.
