Digital Guruji: Why did you think of starting Gwalior Diaries? And what does it do?

This generation have no idea about what is going on in their nearby or in the world. This is what makes me create Gwalior Diaries.

Kaushal Agarwal : The major challenge I’ve ever faced is, On Feb 28th, that I received a mail from Instagram that my account has been disabled against violating T&C. There was no special indication that shows the real reason. I tried to contact Instagram through mails, messages. Sent thousands of appeals to reactive it but it didn’t get back. Then I made myself to create a new page. And I don’t know how but we’ve got all our audience back between 3 months. This is surely the magic that ever happened in my life. This is like I’ve got my account back.
