Youtubers like Abhi and Niyu are Misleading You
Their recent video on Adani was like coming from the Adani enterprises itself. They have skillfully defended the Adani enterprises while simultaneously negating the conclusion of the Hindenburg report. The craftsmanship of this duo to sound neutral is terrific. But carefully analysing their content you will doubt their impartiality.
Abhiraj and Niyati, better known as Abhi and Niyu, are popular content creators who are famous for the analysis of contemporary events. Abhi and Niyu have created content on almost every topic – ranging from lesser-known kings to the latest govt policies, current affairs, history, climate, politics and more. They gained popularity as they decode and simplify issues for millenials with a belief that small steps can lead to big outcomes in the future.
They claim to be politically neutral but many of their videos say otherwise.
Their recent video on Adani was like coming from the Adani enterprises itself. They have skillfully defended the Adani enterprises while simultaneously negating the conclusion of Hindenburg report. The craftsmanship of this duo to sound neutral is terrific. But carefully analysing their content you will doubt their impartiality.
In that video, they averred that Hindenburg’s report was made after a conclusion and not otherwise as any report should be. But in the past, the research firm has earlier released scathing reports on companies like Nikola, WINS Finance, China Metal Resources Utilization, SC Worx, Predictive Technology Group, SmileDirectClub and Yangtze River Port & Logistics among others. These are the companies whose profits skyrocketed magically and prima facie appears fraudulent like Adani’s.
The whole video is just doubting the credibility and reliability of Hindenburg just like any Adani stakeholder would want.
The duo made many irrational claims about the report. One of them is that the reports doubts Indian The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. They either intentionally or unintentionally made the wrong reading of the report. Doubtlessly Adani being a giant conglomerate warrants an audit by reputed firms. The report has extensively reported on the point of how Adani has used these sham firms to audit its giant company.
In defending the low number of analyst analyzing the report of Adani Groups they gave a very absurd rationale. They mentioned that the other companies like Tata, and Mahindra are from different sectors and can’t be compared. Seriously, they gave this line of reasoning. The comparison given by Hindenburg was just for reference and does not require an equivalent comparator.
Investors and other relevant stakeholders have faith in the companies of Tata, Mahindra and other tycoons because they have been building their business India for centuries and decades. They analyse their industries because there are dynamics attached to it. Not like Adani, who has taken billions of dollars of a loan through his political affiliation and artificially inflated his share prices. Also given Adani’s political connection no analyst would want to impinge upon her career.
Nowhere in the video they have mentioned the political nexus between Adani and Modi. They have not mentioned why many PSU’s were sold to Adani at cheapskate. Instead of spreading the truth (as they repeatedly claim) they made a video as a mouthpiece of Adani.
This is something you won't find in the video of the duo since this may upset their bosses.
At the end they mentioned that Hindenburg earned in billions of dollars. But there is no source of this averment. There is no report or article which says they have earned billions of dollars by short circuiting the shares. The amount is nowhere disclosed.
This is not the first time the duo has defended the ally of Modi Government. In the past they have made a video on “The Kashmir Files” terming this is a truth suppressed by Media. The movie is nothing but just another reiteration of the toxic ideology of current regime. The movie makes its point by accentuating polarising the country on communal lines. The movie depicts the muslims as evil and monsters.
They are though silent on BBC documentary on PM Modi. The raids conducted by the government on BBC, Dainik Bhaskar and similar other platforms who dared to critique the current regime. They have never made any video on Social Activists who are imprisoned by the current regime.
Also in their latest video they even said something on the line of “Nehru ki galti hai”. To be exact they mentioned that instead of taking recourse to United Nations Nehru must have militarized the area of Jammu and Kashmir. Consequently, because of the fault of Nehru (Nehru ki galti), we lost a sizeable portion of Kashmir.
On the contrary, we won’t ever see the content on their website showcasing Nehru as an architect of several health and education institutions.
Another fact of corroboration is the title of their videos. Every third of their video is on Pakistan (a little short of the ratio of our mainstream media). Titles of video like “why pakistan failed” “Pakistan v India” “Pakistan’s economy” and “China is afraid of India” is something which the current regime wants its media to show. The duo have been showcasing these issues just like someone another mainstream media would do.
Ironically, their about us section reads “We are here to tell you stories about the REAL INDIA that the mainstream media ignores. We are here to share solutions. We are here to make YOU INDIA POSITIVE!”
With the help of animation, video editing and fast transition they made the content appellable in a manner that they are preaching the gospel truth. We as a viewer must be cautious while consuming such content. They play lots of psychological trick to penetrate such illogical rationale in the mind of viewers. They wear the cloak of impartial and unbiased content creator but behind the cloak, they are propagating views for which they might be getting some incentive.
Also hysterically at the end how oxymoronic it sounds when he says “yehi important message ap tak pahuchane mai mujhe farak padta hai”. Kyunki shaayad isi important baat ke inhe kahi se paise aa rahe hai 🙂
