KAROLINA GOSWAMI BIOGRAPHY
Life is like a roller-coaster. It has its own surprising and exciting twist and turns. It is on us, either we enjoy or freak out.
Karolina was born and brought up in POLAND in a Christian family, specifically around Southeast part of Poland and holds a Polish citizenship. As a polish child she could have completed her education in Poland, got her job, married a polish guy and lived her life like most of other polish citizens, but life had some other plans for her and took her all the way to India and she published her first YouTube video titled “India- the future superpower is reclaiming”.
But why? Why would a polish citizen who had not even ever tried an Indian dish bother herself to make a video about India and with such a positive attitude?
Her life took a turnaround when she accidently met an Indian guy named Anurag Goswami in Europe. She fell in love with him. He is a furniture designer by profession and as a typical Indian he never wanted to leave his home, India. But love is much stronger than the barriers precluding it. As a result, Karolina decided to move to India. She visited India for the first time in 2014 with her then fiancée and ended up as Karolina Goswami later in her life.
Being brought up in Europe, the chaotic atmosphere, social rules and culture were new to her. But within few months, she started discovering the beauty and reality of India. She found that India was not just about this-
It was totally in contrast with the representation of the biased western media. She realized that, she was the victim of the fake western mainstream media like other European citizens who are totally ignorant of the real facts, data’s and information. This led to losing their objectivity towards India and Indians.
She realized the need to educate the world about her new home, India. It was a grueling task, to challenge the propaganda of the highly funded news agencies when her personal stakes were so high. She trusted her gut feeling and left her promising career as a production engineer and with the help of her husband she decided to start a social media platform called “INDIA IN DETAILS”. As the name suggests, she articulates each and every aspect of INDIA without being biased. Her objective is to provide broader perspective towards all the sides of India, which is yet to be achieved as she often lacks with the funds required for the kind of research she does, data’s she presents and the quality of videos she produces for the YouTube channel along with other social media platforms which motivated her to join a crowdfunding platform called Patreon where her supporters could donate money to support her activities.

KAROLINA'S YOUTUBE JOURNEY
Ironically, she doesn’t consider herself as a youtuber and never wanted to be either. Being an engineer and her husband being a furniture designer she had sufficient for her financial needs. She didn’t even know that any money could be earned from YouTube and always considered social media as a medium to interact with the world audience. But her ignorance doesn’t affect her professionalism at all and publishes high standard, quality videos mostly funded through her husband’s savings.
She published her first video on October 24, 2016 titled “India- the future superpower is reclaiming” and there is no stopping since then and published 69 videos on her channel till now (as on 10th September, 2019). With around 309,876 subscribers, she is a veteran now. Her most viewed video is titled “Lets check if you are brainwashed about India” with around 2.1 million views.
It went viral on internet even though she doesn’t follow the general drill of calling out “Like, Share and Subscribe” and ends her video with the citation “See You Again”.
But this was not a day task and effort. Her dedication could be gauged from the fact that she interacted with the foreign students at different institutions and educated them about India and Indians while she was eight months pregnant. She also covered India’s premier Institution, IIT Kharagpur in her an hour-long movie.
She specified that 20-30 percent of her videos are watched outside India which indicates her global reach and trust in her analysis and presentation of data.
The question is yet not answered fully. Why a polish girl bothered herself in making videos and using other platforms to convey positivity and show all sides of India as she is not the only foreigner marrying an Indian guy and moving to India?
The reason is simple, “just the way she is.” She describes herself more of an explorer and seeker than believer which prevents her vision from any dogmas towards new places, people or anything.
Her strong words with a soft voice couldn’t be ignored in the coming future.
In her words, See you again.
