Gaurav Chaudhary (Technical Guruji) was born on May 7, 1991, in Ajmer, Rajasthan. Gaurav is from a Hindu Jat family. Technical Guruji attended Kendriya Vidyalaya School. Gaurav went to Dubai to complete his bachelor’s degree in micro-electronics at BITS Pilani, Dubai. Gaurav received a gold medal in college. Although he had a difficult time after college because his father went into a coma and all of his family duties rested on his shoulders. He had to manage the family business in addition to his other commitments. Gaurav lives in Dubai with his mother and elder brother and visits his hometown only sometimes.
Gaurav’s father had a family business that sold CCTV cameras and security equipment. Gaurav grew up with two sisters and an older brother. The Chaudhary family relocated from Bikaner to Ajmer in Rajasthan, India. Technical Guruji has two sisters, one of them is a police inspector and the other is a teacher. Gaurav lives with his mother, his elder brother Pradeep Chaudhary and his sister-in-law in Dubai after his father’s demise.
Technical Guruji attended ‘Kendriya Vidyalaya’ for his primary education before obtaining a B. Tech degree in electronics from ‘Rajasthan Technical University.’ Gaurav was one of the university’s top students. He later earned an M. Tech in micro-electronics from the ‘Birla Institute of Technology & Science’ (BITS) Dubai campus, where he was awarded a gold medal for academic distinction.
Technical Guruji was inspired to become a tech YouTuber after discovering the Youtube channel ‘Sharmaji Technical.’ Prabal Sharma owns the channel, which predominantly posts tech review content in Hindi. The prospect of discussing technology with a Hindi-speaking audience piqued Gaurav’s interest. He worked with Prabal and posted a few videos on his YouTube page. Those videos helped Prabal’s channel ‘Sharmaji Technical,’ which prompted Gaurav to start his own YouTube channel.
Gaurav was, however, not interested in making it a review-centric channel. Instead, he intended to make educational videos that explained the features of new technologies.
Gaurav established his YouTube channel ‘Technical Guruji’ on October 18, 2015, he had no idea that it would become one of India’s most popular channels. Soon after Gaurav posted the first few videos, his channel began to receive a large number of views, and his subscriptions increased quickly. The channel has more than 23 million subscribers, making it one of India’s fastest-growing YouTube channels. Gaurav created his second channel ‘GauravChaudharyOfficial’ on 7th May 2017, which mostly covers non-technical content. The channel features Gaurav’s fan fest, YouTube fest, and trip vlogs. Gaurav has also dabbled with comedy, working with YouTuber Anisha Dixit, popularly known as Rickshawali. His second channel has nearly 5 million followers.
Gaurav started making YouTube videos as a hobby after moving to Dubai in 2012. In Dubai, he obtained a certification to work with the Dubai Police security system and began working as a Dubai Police security engineer. Even though Gaurav began his YouTube career outside of India, he desired to make content for the Indian audience. Gaurav decided to create Hindi-language videos to reach a wider audience. The idea of creating tech videos in Hindi was a niche in the YouTube world. As a result, it clicked and propelled Gaurav’s YouTube career to new heights.
Gaurav Chaudhary was once the target of an internet controversy after a Hindi tech channel named ‘Technical Sagar’ accused him of failing to give credit to other YouTubers. In his 15-minute video, titled ‘EK GHATIYA INSAAN – TECHNICAL GJI EXPOSED FULL STORY #SHAME,’ Sagar questioned Gaurav’s integrity, called him names, and accused him of failing to acknowledge his sources of inspiration. Fans of ‘Technical Guruji’ afterward chastised Sagar for uttering such derogatory remarks.
