His mostly videos often featured his wife, Sabita Munda, and their four daughters Monica, Monisa, and Mahima, and son Pabitra.

Aims to introduce tradition and food preparation method

 The videos generally display his community’s traditions and food preparation process.

When he studied only up to the seventh standard. So, He always thought he could make videos on his own community, lifestyle, and culture in his village.

Sabita Munda, his wife is very happy with his success as a YouTuber. He once uploaded a video of the mud house that they live in. It was viewed by many people and it brought financial support from an organization in Bhubaneswar to build a brick-and-cement house as she said.

Give importance to culture and Tradition

They learn about our traditions and culture. So he is getting some money, said Isak’s father-in-law, Joseph Munda. Isak is clear that simply making money out of his YouTube videos is not his determination.
