Discovery of Axom shooting in progress

A new YouTube series named ‘Discovery of Axom’ highlighting the rural entrepreneurs of Assam is released on August 14. This series has focused on how rural entrepreneurs of Assam are silently revolutionizing and earning livelihood for themselves and providing a livelihood for many whiles away from the limelight.

This is produced by Borbhag foundations and released on YouTube by KC Digital on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence.

Never before Assam has seen through the eyes of the rural entrepreneurs, which have sprung up all over the state, working in a myriad of activities but rarely getting the due recognition. This series is to get inspired by these people who have made lifelong sacrifices to remain self-reliant and live with dignity and become a proud Indian.

“That was the reason we thought of travelling the state length and breadth and we covered 25 such rural entrepreneurs of 15 districts of Brahmaputra valley travelling nonstop for 15 days covering 1750 kilometres,” said Anirudh Goswami, the founder of the Borbhag Foundation which has produced the series.

The makers of the series have gone to Morigaon, Kamrup, Goalpara, Bongaigaon, Barpeta, Nalbari, Darrang, Udalguri, Sonitpur, Biswanth Chariali, Golaghat, Jorhat, Sivasagar, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia districts.

Samujjal Kashyap has directed the series.

Explaining the rationale behind the YouTube series, Kashysp said: “Our idea is to catch the imagination of the younger generation and inspire them to take the path of entrepreneurship.”

The series will only be available on the YouTube channel of KC Digital and every week there will be fresh episodes.

“We have touched upon agriculture, piggery, SME, tourism, environment, fishery, honey and value-added crops, handlooms and tea in this series,” said Anirudh Goswami of Borbhag Foundation.
