A journey of Biswa Limbu (Biswa Raj Samekham) who was born in Taplejung tells a story worth listening and makes him stand out from the rest. Many youths see him as an inspiration in the media industry today.
He did his schooling from Tribhuvan Secondary school Meringden, Taplejung and moved to Dharan where he completed his +2. Carrying his dream to be a media personality, he entered Kathmandu and joined a Media Training House ‘Global Media and Research center Kathmandu’ where he completed 3 months news reading, writing and program presentation course. Then to pursue his dream he worked as trainee journalist at Times FM Kathmandu. His first step towards his goal was initiated from Times FM as he went on air for the first time ever through this FM.

He also runs his own channel Biswa Limbu where he has more than 118 K subscribers.
Day by day his popularity increased and still is increasing as his YouTube ‘Mero Online TV’ is growing and reaching a greater number of people. His works are being appreciated as he always supports new talents and helps them to reach to huge mass. His hard work and dedication towards his dream has made him someone that youth look up to.
