What is Peeinghuman?
Official Peeinghuman founder Ramit Verma (27) first quit Google’s job to produce Hollywood and Bollywood memes, but soon shifted his focus to viral political content. “I enjoy mocking those in power, because it feels satisfying.

Why their videos are trouble for some?
PeeingHuman analysis of some popular news debate shows: Pouchta hai Bharat (Repubic Bharat), Dangal (Aaj Tak), R Paar (News 18), Taal Thok Ke (Zee News), and Kurukshetra (India TV).

These shows behave less like objective news programs and more like mouthpieces of the current BJP / RSS establishment and their ultra-nationalist agenda.
Ramit Verma uttered harsh words for the impact of Modi and Goswami on the Indian media and the media itself. “I think he has done more damage to the Indian media than anyone could ever do,” he said. “And Modi Toh has also done other damage separately.” According to him, both have “taken Indian media to a place where there is no return. Now it only has to replace the Internet. Internet media is the only hope for any democracy that upholds democracy in the media and media.”
In 2019 he dismissed allegations that he was soft on parties other than the BJP. “If someone wants to check whether I am neutral or not, or I belong to an IT cell, they will already get many videos mocking Rahul Gandhi or Kejriwal.”
Sometimes, Varma listens to people in arguments or using his work to represent his point. “People tell me that he featured a person with a contrary opinion in some of my videos to change his mind, mostly to elders in his family,” he said. “These are some of the recent messages that I got, and I was like, crap this is great. Like it can’t get any better than this.”
