6 Indian Instagram Poets You Need To Follow Right Now

Our favourite #PoetsOfInstagram

By Nishtha Bhalla  January 29th, 2021

Poets are a unique breed. As someone who occasionally writes, I am constantly in awe of people who have the ability to make their words come alive through poetry. Even more so, when they bare their souls on Instagram. To have thousands of people perceive your deepest thoughts is a daunting task, but there are a few Indian Instagram poets who do it so, so well.

In the spirit of showing some love to the #PoetsOfInstagram, I reached out to the team to know whose work they’re loving at the moment. And regardless of whether you’re a poetry buff or just someone who needs a break from the incessant Bernie memes that have taken over the internet, read on to know the Indian Instagram poets you need to follow right now.

Ainee Nizami Ahmedi, Digital Editor – Loves Reading Karuna Ezara Parikh

“Karuna Ezara Parikh does it all. She’s a TV host, she runs her own company, she’s a published writer, and she’s also a poet. I discovered her account, and her work quite recently, and I am hooked. The best part about her work is its simplicity. She manages to say it all (and make you feel a mix of emotions) all in a few lines; that’s a mark of greatness right there.”

Sonakshi Sharma, Junior Beauty Writer – Loves Reading Pratishtha Khattar

“Her poetry begins from minuscule things and flows into the vastness of perpetuity. Pratishtha’s words are an embodiment of how instances, acts and feelings can all tread the fine line between paradox and metaphors in her world of ink. When the digitally savvy divide us, sublime poetry like hers keeps us unified and how. Reiterating that maybe all we have in common is words, irrespective of time and space.”

Nishtha Bhalla, Digital Editorial Intern – Loves Reading Harnidh Kaur

After publishing her first book of poems, The Inability of Words, at the age of twenty, Harnidh Kaur is a force to be reckoned with. Raw and real, Kaur’s writing tiptoes the line between whimsy and reality, and leaves you with a feeling of nostalgia for a memory you didn’t even know existed.”
