I bid 2017 a sweet goodbye I wish you are showered with happiness I hope you achieve success I pray for your health and well being I care for each one of you I want us all to grow stronger together I welcome 2018 with warmth and joy
Today I'm another fallen feather Detached from the womb of mother No longer i weaved the wings altogether As i sailed the sky in solitude forever.
I left my shield of care to find an identity I swirled against the wind to escape the gravity With every turn i felt little light within myself I wore my heart over the sleeves without any help.
I gulped the hunger to feed my insecurities I crossed the orchards to set my priorities The clouds roared at me to bring me down I chewed the thunderclaps with every sundown.
I landed over some thorns and sometimes on petals I caressed the weight of expectations over my knuckles The storms of sufferings wished to smudge my sight I choose to be a warrior to finish my sparkling flight
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pov - written from the pov of individuals coming out of their comfort zones to achieve big in life, facing the challenges to build their own identity. In this process we have to leave behind our loved ones too but at the end we all chase something high, something powerful and for that falling once or twice is important.
In 2016 we launched Mirakee, a creative outlet for writers and readers with in-app designing tools to upload visually appealing images. But building new features is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. The recent change of name was part of our endeavour to improve and move forward. Miraquill is an appropriate choice to portray our objectives and aspirations. It also expresses our zeal to constantly evolve as a dynamic community for writers and readers.
Over the past few months we have increased focus on our concerns to achieve a safe platform in compliance with the new IT Laws in India. Moving further in that direction, Miraquill is now going to only support images from Unsplash library. This image library provides you with an option to choose from 1 million+ high-quality images. Update your app to access this collection of images in the library. Please note that all images uploaded on the platform will be archived. What that means for you is that these images will be available on your profiles for 60 days. After that the textual content of your posts will remain intact and the images will be replaced with a background color. You can edit your posts with Unsplash images or change the background color of your post. You can also save your posts with images in your gallery if you wish to retain the images.
For the same reason, Miraquill will only support profile images imported from your Google or Facebook accounts. Update your app to refresh your profile images. This is a step against profile pictures that pose problems such as impersonation of other individuals.
These changes will be reflected with immediate effect. Please make sure to update your apps to the latest version.
Here's to a new Mirakee. A safer Mirakee.
Here's to Miraquill.
We are sorry family , we know you don't like these changes but we have to comply with the rules and take the necessary measures. Ultimately this increased focus on making Miraquill a safe haven for writers will help us create even better experiences for you in times to come. Hold our hands and let us embark on this journey together.
PS : The updated version does not remove the bio from your profiles. Please update to the latest version to access the bio.
If you are facing any issues with the new update please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to resolve ASAP!
To be honest, we loved the name MIRAKEE❤️. It was inspired from a Greek word, Meraki used to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or passion.
But the realisation that the word Meraki has a broader interpretation and can be used to describe cooking or preparing a meal, arranging a room, choosing decorations, setting an elegant table or even purchasing the perfect gift for your best friend, made us rethink.
Therefore, the name MIRAQUILL was coined to better reflect our focus on the appeal of written matter as this app was designed with the writers and readers in mind to bring more attention and visibility to words. A quill is a writing tool made from a bird's feather used in the past as a primary method of written communication. So adding quill as a suffix makes it more compatible with our objectives and aspirations.
Although we will always be MIRAKEE in our hearts, we are very excited about our new name Miraquill because it is more in line with our vision- a global interactive platform for a truly creative community of writers and readers.

Along with this name change we have offered you an exciting library of unlimited photographs brought to you by Unsplash. You can update your app and search for photos.
However, with this new addition, we have removed the upload image option from the app. This step has been taken to ensure that creators are credited for their artwork. We also want to make sure that photos with nudity, violent imagery, screenshots are not allowed on the platform. We expect writers to respect the original work of photographers and the guidelines of the community. If you would like to upload your image to the library of photos permitted on the app, we can guide you with the process. Please write to us at email@example.com.
We asked you a few months back about all the problems you have been facing on this platform. We have been working on resolving some of them such as keeping the spammers out, fixing the word battles, improving the explore section etc. We'd like to know if you're still facing any issues with the app. Are you receiving all the notifications? Are you enjoying the experience?
