AUSTRALIA. Queensland. After leaving a rural coconut plantation in Kerala at the age of 1, Ashwin Segkar was raised in very British-style schools in the west including in England, New Zealand and Australia where he lost touch with his Asian roots.

As an adult, Ashwin is trying to re-connect with the continent he left behind and documenting the process in a fascinating YouTube Channel, Snappy Asia Explainers, where he shares an unknown element of Asian culture and society each week. Steering away from cliches, he explores some most fascinating aspects of the cultures of the region in a way that is relatable for those who’ve never been. From oil pulling to Tibetan Death meditation, extended v nuclear families to Asian beauty standards and the recent tension between China and India, the videos present the continent and its cultures through his unique sense of humour and eye for left field facts and pertinent detail.

Ashwin is a radio presenter on Australia’s public broadcaster and the videos have the curiosity and attention to detail of a well put together feature piece.

Presenting each video decked out in his former preppy wear and alongside his Himalayan salt lamp, the videos are a unique presentation of Asian culture, helping western audiences to understand the fascinating nuances of the Asian region and communities that they are increasingly coming into contact with. The videos are released every Sunday morning (Australian Eastern Standard Time).
