We live in a time where we do not have to wait for the ‘right age’ to follow our dreams. Gaming is an industry that has paced up in India, and even the younger generation is much enthusiastic about the segment. Teenage kids are already advancing with technology by learning nearly everything online- even before the online classes segment were introduced. Hence, there is more to explore and people are helping their kids to be what they want to be.
The generation born in the millennium knows much more than what we expect, and they are technologically much more advanced. Talking about the gaming industry or esports, young students from school itself have been following and exploring their passion with the right vision.
We recently interacted with Aadit Kumar, who is just 13 years old and with a passion for gaming, he assembled and installed his gaming PC with the help of YouTube channels.
How did it all start?
Aadit has been into Play Station gaming for almost 5 years now. At a young age, he use to play games on his Play Station with his elder brother and eventually became fond of it.
3 years back he requested his father to get him a gaming PC, but his father denied it. Aadit, not giving up on his dream told his father that he will build his own set-up within 3 years. Witnessing his commitment and passion towards gaming, his father decided to help him.
With thorough research on YouTube and following some channels like- Linus Tech Tips, Tech Source, Setup Wars, and Setup Upgrades, Aadit made a list of parts and extensions he needed to create the entire setup for gaming.
His father helped him gather all the spare parts from Nehru Place market of New Delhi, which is popular for electronic goods. Not only this but his father further gave him a tech support person who helped him to assemble his gaming setup.
How much time does Aadit take to get this gaming setup ready?
It took almost 3 years to convenience his father and for installation, it took him almost 4 days of hard work. He almost spends around 2 lakh to 2.5 Lakh to completely set up the entire gaming ecosystem.
Being so young, how does Aadit manage his time?
He told India TV that recently he got over with his final exams, so he has enough time to play- indoor and outdoor as well, but he manages his time accordingly. He told us that his mother was quite worried because of his excessive gaming habits, so Aadit made a rule to segregate time for playing indoor games, working on school assignments and going outdoor for physical games and fitness as well.
What are Aadit’s favourite games?
Some of the games are Valorant, GTA V, Apex Legends, CS: GO, and Genshin Impact are a few of the games which Aadit likes to plays online with his friends.
