The answer to it is simple. Recently there was this video where slam poetry was delivered by a young girl named Ananya Johar. This poetry piece talks about feminism and how women are treated in this current society. All the stereotypes and the kind of treatment a woman gets in her house is portrayed by her. It became such a viral and there were more than 1 million viewers to it in a short span of time. She was then called for a lot of shows. The main point to understand is that there were so many written works about how woman were treated in the contemporary society by a lot of accomplished writers but not all of it got the spotlight and attention. This video also made everyone think and it was so powerful the emotions she delivered was so appealing to the audience that’s why this video got so much viewers. Another example would be a normal write up by a random person a one liner or a poem with really few lines along with a picture can get 1000s of like in a short span of time. Which means 1000 people have liked it there might be more than 1000 views but 1000 people likes it. The same when it comes to books or a poem written won’t get that much attention in a short span of time. First it needs to be accepted and then it has to be published, once published you need to grab the audience. In the United States, there are roughly 350″,000 new books and versions distributed as it was done in the good old days every year. The undeniable inquiry that I am certain you are obtaining is out from what number of submitted? That, shockingly, is somewhat hard to state. To give you a rough approximation, most specialists and distributers will disclose to you that they get between 1″,000-2″,000 question letters every month, or 12″,000-24″,000 every year and there are truly a large number of operators and distributers. You can crunch the numbers just as I can. A little level of entries really makes it to the distributed stage.

That is people go to social media websites which takes zero cost for us to write and upload. The best part is that it gets published and there are comments basically critics from normal person to a well accomplished person to review our work. The other thing which can be discussed is interpretation. A picture is uploaded and there is an interpretation of the artist and it is open to interpretations and the message is delivered meaning what we try to portray is reached and few might be against thou what we want to convey is conveyed. Fig (12) A man jumping into the water to beat the heat fig (12) This picture was taken by Auditya Venkatesh. It’s taken near Lakshadweep island and it summer there.

Publishing and making that book reach every class of audience and every corner of this world is the most difficult part. Also one cannot easily publish unless he is well known to the publishing community. There is some kind of politics happening there too.

Yehuda Devir’s comics on his married life made him and his wife a sensation. “She saw that on Facebook there’s lots of couples who, when they’re trying to find an apartment, post photos of themselves saying ‘please help us find an apartment”,'” Yehuda told The Jerusalem Post in a recent interview. “She said ‘why don’t you draw something funny so that people will like it and help us?'” Fig (13) Illustration of a couples daily life routine fig (13) This not only helped them but it made them go places and now they are a world famous.
