This article proposes a new distribution call the Exponentiated Power Lindley-Logarithmic Distribution for modeling real life data. The distribution is motivated by the Exponentiated Power Lindley distribution. The quantile function is derived and the Maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters are also derived. The distribution performed better in simulation study than the competing distribution. The distribution can model real life biomedical phenomena and agricultural events.

Keywords: Flexibility, Survival functions, Hazard functions
