Success isn’t a straight path, but to the ones who follow it, they do get it as the outcome. However, to reach the desired, it does take a lot, and this is where most backout. But the question here is, are they all the same? No, not all are the same, and a few know that success doesn’t come with a limit. They know, “Our mindset is where the limit for Success lies and it can be taken ahead, till we wish to take it up.” Guess we are aware of one such personality who believes in the quote and follows it without limiting his mindset. Anil Singh Panoo, a popular video content creator whose journey started from Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand, and brought him to New Delhi. He is a known producer and director who runs his YouTube channel, J.M.S Arts, and currently has 715k+ subscribers. His hard work caught the notice of many, and he was also featured on Kapil Sharma Show. He has been part of ads like Speedwav Safety googles (face shield glass) and walkie talkie available product on Amazon. Not just this, he also cleared his I.T.B.P. and got cleared for his physical test and a medical test, which led him towards the accomplishment of his 1st childhood dream to serve his country.
“Belonging from a financially-unstable family we didn’t own a house. We came from Uttarakhand to Delhi and resided in one of the rented houses in J. Cluster. I was a part of primary school & I wasn’t happy with what were facing due to the financial insecurity but guess my strong willingness made me go on and work hard. I just wanted to wear the uniform of a Soldier and be one of them and even when I was unable to see path, my heart made me work and work and work until the time I cleared my medical test in the 2nd attempt and got posted in Delhi. It wasn’t easy but hard work and willingness can change a lot.” The words used by Anil Singh Panoo make us realize that to accomplish a dream, we need to work on them and to work on them, we never should wish to give up on them, and if we do, due to either reason, we should know how to get back on track without just staying in the pain of what was lost. He truly is an inspiration for sure.
Anil’s journey to be a YouTuber began when he came across an article about Lily Singh, an Indian YouTuber from Canada. Her story inspired him, and this is where the channel was created with the name of J.M.S Arts, where he uploaded his 1st video for fun in December 2016. In his 1st attempt, the video got viral and received 60 Lakh views. Well, this was just the start, and the best came in when he received the earned his first pay being a YouTuber. His journey from INR 17,400 to INR 2,25,000 became an inspiration for him and made him go on and on.
The best of the journeys are those who lend a hand to those in need, and Anil never backed out from it. Anil is known to have helped many YouTubers, including Baby Priyanka, Govind Digari, Maya Upadhyay, Pappu Karki, and many others, to build their channel. He did it to support them and didn’t charge any fees as all he wished for was for his fellow YouTubers to grow. He also appreciates the help of Pappu Karki, who he knew personally and who helped him to be introduced to many other YouTubers.
A silver button from YouTuber was one reason what motivated Anil apart from one of his videos in 2017 which was Trending #1. Even in March 2018, his video named Kauva Biryani got viral and, on the 1st day of the upload, received views in between 70-80 lakhs and got him 32,000 subscribers. Even during the pandemic, Anil, by creating creative content, reached out to people to keep them entertained. He made sure his creativity can reach around, and for this, Tik Tok became a great help. As of now, he has more than 2.5 million views, 1,70,000 likes & 50,000 shares on Tik Tok. Even on Facebook, the views have reached 10 lakh. His video titled “Delhi to Uttarakhand” has been a huge success, and he does give credit to his DOP and video editor, Shivam Kohli, and the team.
When asked what his dream is, Anil said, “I dream to be recognized by the world and to bring forward my journey to motivate people who due to either reason feel like giving up. I never wish anyone to give up. I did all I can with the willingness of heart and I want all to have the same while they take forward YouTube as a medium to showcase the talent. I believe, this world is wonderful and we do not know what awaits next. So, giving up is never a chance and to fight should always be one.”
Miracles happen, and they exist. The story of Anil’s overnight video success is one of it, and so, we know what we need to do. We gotta try as we don’t know what lies ahead, and to see it, moving ahead should be the only option.
