From an early age, he hoped to do something for society through tradition and social activities.

Early Life of S Bikash Chakma

Has ever prevented S Bikash from choosing this profession from his family or community?
My community and a lot of people say what I get by doing these. What a living you can make by doing this? What are you doing without doing a job after studying well? But what they don’t know is that the joy that comes from doing these things and giving joy to others is too much. This is because, in this world, it is more difficult to give pleasure than to give people pain. People can easily make people cry, but there are very few people who can give joy.
And many people ask me why I make content in Bengali without making content in my mother tongue. The reason is that first of all, I am a Bangladeshi. Second, I don’t want to limit my content to myself or my community. I want my content to be understood by everyone. It’s because if we don’t pick up the culture and heritage among people of other communities, how will they know about us. Thirdly, there will be about 5 percent in the world who understand Chakma language but almost all people of different communities understand the Bengali language. If we don’t understand the language of the video, we don’t enjoy watching the video of people. That’s why I make content in Bengali.
Do you have an influencer you admire in this field of the profession?
I want to give credit to my parents and my very close friends. Because they have been supporting me since I was a child and will continue to support me in the future without being interrupted. They never stopped me from doing anything good and never will.
S Bikash Chakma What are your plans for achieving in the future?
I will start blogging about food only in indigenous food and culture. I would like to explore internationally, such as indigenous peoples living in Bangladesh and India, as well as indigenous communities in Asian countries and the Chakma community.
