Poetry (Poetrython)

Last Tuesday, the word prompt in Twitter Poetrython was Poetry/ShairyIn Twitter Poetrython, the poets are given a word prompt and they need to instantly write poems surrounding that word within 9-10 pm every Tuesday. 

Out of the many micro poetries that I wrote on poetry in twitter, I am sharing three of them. 

My Vulnerability

Within The Verses

A new world of love

Defeating the tears

Tears clouding her vision
A lump in her throat
Refusing to go down;
The sting of a hundred needles
Piercing her heart,
A thorny rose crushed
In her delicate palm...

The helplessness of deception
The remorse of a wrong decision
The serpentine thoughts threatening
To strangulate her at once...

When she finally decided to stop
The self-torture and self-pity;
Wiping her tears fiercely,
She tried to smile
Recollecting fond childhood memories
Night outs with her best friends
And there she was...

Laughing her heart out
Defeating the tears;
Surrendering to pain is never an option
She had grown up
Singing in the chaos
And dancing with a broken foot.

Affimity- the meeting point of passion and friendship

In this era of the internet, we cannot even imagine a life without social media networks. So we have accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn to share our thoughts and moments with the world.

Gaining audience through social networks

If you are a blogger, then it is natural that you must be sharing your blog posts in all the above mentioned social networks to attract audience to your blog. It definitely helps, but are we bloggers satisfied with the amount and type of audience that we manage to attract through our social networks?

I don’t think so. I have been sharing my blog posts in my Facebook account for years and only a few interested people care to visit my blog. When I share it on twitter, I get a few retweets and a few visitors from the thousands of active followers. Disappointing, but true. However, there is good news for every single blogger and people aspiring to start their blog.

The dream destination of every blogger

Affimity is the largest social blogging platform that lets you share your content with passionate people all over the world. Affimity is the meeting point of passion (affinity) and friendship (amity).

If you are a travel blogger, the best audience for you is people who are passionate about travelling. Now, how will you find so many travel enthusiasts who will be interested in reading your blog or content? The answer is Affimity. 

You can find channels in affimity, designed for people sharing a common passion. So you just need to go to the travel channel of affimity and post your content. And voila! You would get plenty of likes and comments if your content is interesting. At the same time, you would also be able to connect with like-minded people who share your passion and make some good friends.

My experience with Affimity

I am saying this only after using affimity since six months. Within a short span, I have gained more than 2500 followers. You can follow me (Purba_PC) on Affimity. I mostly share about travel, books and movies. In every post that I share on Affimity, I get a lot of likes and comments, followed by visits in my blog. 

Therefore, if you are a blogger, you should definitely take full advantage of the features of Affimity to build your fan base. If you can share interesting content, Affimity is your guaranteed ticket to instant stardom. And that’s what we bloggers want, right?

The amazing Datsun redi-GO for a peppy drive!

Some cars make you fall in love with them at the very first sight. Well, Datsun redi-GO is one such car that took away my heart as I came to know about it on the internet recently. It is the perfect combination of comfort and style. It has the best of Japanese technology.

The Datsun redi-GO is a car that can instill in anyone a love for life and adventure.  The car is full of life and is made ideally for today’s generation who are always on the go to achieve something. Today’s youth is full of dreams and ambitions. They do not know to pause in life as they are brimming with enthusiasm and passion to live the life of their dreams.

Datsun has well understood the needs of today’s youth. Therefore, they have created a perfect car for the ‘ready-to-go’ generation. Datsun redi-GO is a car that can fill today’s youth with full of freedom and confidence to achieve whatever they want from life. At the same time, the car is full of life and so it can add the much needed fun and spark in the hectic lives of today’s youth.  

I would definitely like to test the cool and amazing Datsun redi-GO in my city, Kolkata for a peppy drive.

Although all the features of the Datsun redi-GO are praiseworthy, I would like to mention three features of the car that appealed to me the most.

The oh-so-attractive Yukan Design of the car

The first thing that grabs our eyeballs is the external appearance of the car. Therefore, the attractive Yukan Design of Datsun redi-GO impressed me to the core. I know that if I take the Datsun redi-GO for a drive in my city, I will be able to grab everyone’s attention.

Although the car is sleek and compact, it has a robust stance. It exudes a sporty vibe with that kind of styling. The sleek and smooth silhouette of the car looks very attractive. Moreover, it has dynamic and side character lines. The silver touch gives the car a premium appeal. The car is extremely sporty and stylish. 

Power Windows

The next thing about Datsun redi-GO that appealed to me is its power windows. Datsun redi-GO’s power windows let you access fresh air. The switches of the power windows are located conveniently. Both the driver and the co driver can easily operate the power windows and get fresh air. This feature of Datsun redi-GO is really impressive because many times, people feel suffocated inside the car. The power windows will ensure that I can have a comfortable ride. 

Superior Air Conditioning

This feature of Datsun redi-GO is an absolute boon for me. In the hot and humid weather of Kolkata, it is really impossible to stay without air conditioning. The best thing about Datsun redi-Go’s air conditioning is that it is optimized for the weather conditions of India. It ensures that the passengers feel comfortable inside the car, despite the outside temperatures. It has a large compressor of 89 CC that has a great cooling capacity.

Not only these three features, the Datsun redi-GO has all the features that can make your journey fun, comfortable and safe.

You must check out the car yourself to find out about its amazing features.

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.

Every time I fall down

Every time I fall down,
Every time I make a mistake,
Take a slightly wrong path
And my heart sobs secretly,
My father's calm countenance
Placates my weary soul.

I look at him
Tired, lost, tuckered out
He caresses my head
And narrates a story
About a girl
Who stood up with renewed equanimity
Every time she was hit down;
Who always learned from
Every misstep and experience,
Gaining medals of wisdom
In the casserole of her scars.
She is his favorite hero
A champion he boasts of.

My tears disappear
And I smile
As I recognize the girl and her stories;
The wind beneath my wings
The valor in my heart
My father is my soul-guide.

-Purba Chakraborty
