It’s tough to be a Journalist for a small town boy

Mistakes, mistakes and mistakes. This becomes a major part of your life when you start the pursuit of becoming a journalist. However, there lies a major difference between the number of mistakes a person does who has been born and brought up in a metro city and the one who hails from a small town. And in many cases, the latter gets extremely frustrated after a certain time span. So frustrated that the only option left is to change the profession.

I am not demotivated or lack courage, but this is a concrete fact which becomes a major part of every person who is struggling with this. Okay, let me be very clear. Journalism involves various duties and in this context, I am focussing on the writing part. You go out, hustle, gather the information. And then, then comes writing, which is, for some out there, is the biggest challenge. So big that it seems as hard as climbing the mount Everest.

People often suggest the novice writer to read, read and read a lot. And when you do so, the flow of writing starts to be seen. However, the story doesn’t end there. You need to be factually hundred percent correct. And when that is also achieved, is the job done? Not yet! Now you got to improve your vocab. Seriously, this is an unending process and there are a huge bunch of people for whom this is like burning cigarette. But for the person mentioned in the title of this article, the cigarette takes years to get lit.

Many times, when you realise that you aren’t fit for this job and need to change, it’s already too late. I mean it feels so stupid changing your profession after spending 2 or 4 years in a job. Then what, people end up doing for the whole life with the same struggle. But I think it doesn’t remain a struggle for the whole life but for the initial days, it is. You might say that every profession is tough in the initial days. In that case, I must tell you, if English isn’t your native language, it takes years to excel in it. And without being an expert in it, you just can’t survive in this territory.




Asking You A Favour, Please Do Read And Support.

What’s up my beloved readers!!

Have been away for too long but that was due to a purpose that I would love to share with you all. And in that respect, I would not hesitate to ask you a favour by all means. But before this, let me tell you something to make you aware why I had not been updating any material on this space.

My blog is all about motorcycles and updates of all the chaos happening in the bike world. Besides, I love writing. Resultantly, the combination of love for two wheels and writing makes me scribble down everything I think about this sector and the daily events going on in the same. Frankly, I research the stuff whatever I write and mould it into my words to make it my personal story.

Over the past few months, I have been blankly writing about my favourite topic here regardless of how many readers and like I acquire. And whoever comes down here and reads my crap, I am truly thankful to them. It makes me think that at least there are two or three people, except me. who read what I think. In that case, you people are something I should treasure and the counting does not matter at all.

Coming to the real world and practicality, this is not what I could have continued my whole life. Indeed I am a type of person who doesn’t prefer to put hobbies on the sidelines. Instead, I nourish them and try to make out something good of it. And with that intention, gathering all my enthusiasm, I took this effort of starting a full fledged motorcycle website christened as Here, I write down all the motorcycle news, scoop, launches, technical blogs and anything related to this niche. However, I don’t it there the way I would do here. Now it’s all close to flawless such as the trueness of the report, proper images and the sensible format of presenting the information.

I don’t know and don’t even care whether you all feel I am capable enough to take this step but if anyone of you thinks I am, I truly appreciate you and will try to walk on the same lines. Those who don’t think I should have done this, I can assure you that one day I’ll change your opinion.

Royal Enfield Bikes To Receive Higher Displacement Engine

The Continental GT and Himalayan are confirmed to be available as high capacity models, other prospect bikes are not specified yet.

Power delivery is the factor which keeps away many from buying a Royal Enfield motorcycle even if they love them. The elegant classic design and the screaming motor is not able to accelerate as much as today’s high-tech offerings plying out on road. However, these days might become a history as a company official reported that some of the Royal Enfield bikes will be getting a high capacity motor in coming days.

The highest cc engine which is available in the fleet of RE bikes is 535cc which is strapped on the Continental GT. Now, the company CEO said in a Q&A session that the displacement might go up to 750cc and not more than that. The decided limit for the capacity is due to the demand lying in this category only, as reported by the CEO.

Rewinding some time back we remember that a higher capacity RE Cafe Racer based on the Continental GT was spied while being on testing rounds in Spain. Looking at the readiness of the bike it was evident that it won’t take too long to drop down at dealerships. Apart from the cafe racer, the all-terrain Royal Enfield Himalayan is also confirmed to receive a higher displacement motor which might further increase its ecstasy within the enthusiasts.

The official revelation from the company about this clearly signals that the bigger RE bikes are on their way and, perhaps, might be unveiled at the EICMA 2017 to be held in October. If that happens, India should receive them on its ground at the 2018 Auto Expo.

Carrying Children On 2-wheelers Banned In Philippines

Meeting with an accident while plying along the road is not unusual, above all, it’s becoming more common these days. Sustaining cuts and fractures are inevitable. However, the loss feels at its peak when while coming across a misfortune on road, we had been carrying a child. That’s the exact time when we feel the necessity of safety on roads.

Taking this into account and paying a keen attention to the road safety aspects, the Philippines government passed a law against carrying a child as a pillion on 2-wheeler. Under this law, if a rider is caught as a victim of carrying a child at the backseat with someone holding or in any condition, a hefty fine will be charged against the rider. A child, if grown enough to rest legs on footpegs, wear a helmet and wrap the arms around the rider, only then he/she is allowed to move on a bike or scooter.

If a rider is caught twice, then the charge second time will be higher than the first. If the rider is witnessed to be violating the law fourth time, he may have to lose his license. Although the new law seems mandatory to be operational, many have raised voices against it saying it is an ‘antipoor’ law. Many of the poor families travel on their 2-wheelers with the whole family since they cannot afford a four wheeler. On the contrary, a government official said that such laws are vital for the safety of everyone.

Husqvarna Vitpilen and Svartpilen 701 Spotted Testing, Almost Ready

Apart from the buzzing entry level offerings, Husqvarna is also readying the middle-weight siblings, Vitpilen and Svartpilen 701.

Having a strong presence in motorsports, Husqvarna is yet to completely arrive in the consumer market of motorcycles. Revealing the concept models of entry-level mini duos, the Vitpilen and Svartpilen 401, at various Auto shows, the company clearly indicated that these bikes will be the opening stroke for markets of various countries. However, the matter of discussion today is the high-capacity combo, the Vitpilen and Svartpilen 701, test mules of which have been spotted in Spain by MCN.

Husqvarna didn’t hide their efforts on the Vitpilen 701 which is inclined towards the cafe racer pattern but, the scrambler-based Svartpilen 701, by its pictures, made us ecstatically surprised. The former, as can be judged by the spy shots, seems to be ready to hit the stage with its almost ready components. None of the body parts is shrouded with the camouflage or any covering, neither any test equipment is evident for monitoring technical parameters.

On the other hand, the scrambler centric model shows that it might be late in the competition. It shares the base and muscles from its cafe racer sibling, although some parts are replaced to satisfy its versatile purpose. The clip-ons are replaced by the single unit handlebar and the tyres are all-terrain focused spoked wheels. The instrument binnacle looks narrow and upswept while the rear number plate unit is mounted on the sub-frame, contrary to the Vitpilen’s plate placed on the swingarm. Headlamps are awaiting final fitment.

Husqvarna, being a sister company of KTM, shares its engine and chassis with the partner. The Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 grabbed a lot of attention and admiration when their concept models were unveiled. Launching of these mini siblings might take place by the end of this year, albeit the bigger bikes may be deprived of launching for a few more days.
