NP Recommends Week #22 – Insta Poetry

The digital age is often blamed for the demise of traditional art forms. But that is not true, these artists & art forms have adapted and found new mediums to express themselves and grow. Over time poets have shared their uplifting content on social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter which has contributed to their incredible rise in popularity.


So this week in our segment NP Recommends, our editors have picked out books by some of our best Instagram Poets. You can use our Read Instantly platform to begin reading these books online even as your physical copy makes its way to your doorstep. Here is a list of books you should not miss.



Shambhavi Mehrotra

Love holds an immense ocean of delicacies and enhanced feelings within us. We either get lost in the reverie or hide from it. Love is an emotion that is hidden in the eyes of a boy born in an untouchable caste falling for a girl from the rich. Love is decorated by the brush of a painter who loses his musing in the smile of his beloved. The purity of love is ignited between two lovers searching for support in each other in their married life, or sitting by the window sill one rainy evening and remembering the lover who has long gone from your arms.

There are a hundred moments of love. So escape from your routine and sit with your coffee as you explore the hidden stories of love, or carry these moments through your travelling escapades and enhance your joyful time with yourself and your memories. Go on and explore your world of love and decorate it with your fascinating memories. Click here to read instantly.

Poet By Mistake

Vickey Uppal

The book, Poet by Mistake, is a collection of couplets, short poems, and quotes describing the feelings of love and the freedom of expression that the current generation is experiencing. The book has mass appeal to readers of all age groups and backgrounds. As a poet, I am trying to give voice to their emotion and thoughts through the stroke of love. Their dream is to love in a certain way and get it reciprocated in the same way, or it is merely wanting to fly into liberation after being hurt. This book is like a bowl of candies on the top of a table, you pick a few each day and not eat it all at once. If you flip the book, you might randomly fall on a poem to see how it reflects your day. Poet by Mistake is a book which can be shared with your loved ones, or you could be addicted to it over a coffee or take this book on a date at the beach or a quiet hill or on your cosy bed. This book is sure to leave your heart talking to you. The book is intended to empower everyone who is in love. Love always brings joy, and sometimes, even pain. This book acts like old wine – celebratory and healing at the same time. Loving and losing someone is a part of life. Accepting life and looking ahead is the way of life.

I've always chased love like a fool, be it in between the pages of a young adult fiction or in between the lines on my palms. And somewhere between the death of my favourite character and the rebirth of love between two young hearts, I've always admired the fact that love has always been there, even if we couldn't see it, even if it wasn't around. It was there in those goodbye(s) and take care(s), hiding behind those smiles and gentle kisses on the forehead. It was there in between our fingers, curling and giggling at the sweet promises we were whispering inside our hearts, weaving dreams of together forever and how love is meant to last. But, you see, love is always there it's us who decide to stop seeing it and somewhere between those arguments and little fights love feels like an illusion, a hoax, a distant dream, while in reality it's just seeking refuge from our bitterness somewhere at the safe corners where we cannot see. —𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘶𝘭 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘢𝘮 . . . . . . . . . .

Another one from Untamed ✨ I wanted to tell y’all something that I think needs to be said. As a writer, when I write something sad it doesn’t mean I’m writing it because I’m sad, or because I don’t believe in hope. It’s just the state of my mind at that point in time and when I look back I see how much has changed. I see how I’ve grown. I see how things around me have changed. Sometimes, writing is just a means to track that growth. ✨ Do y’all agree? . . . . #writersuniverse #poetrylovers #poetryoftheday #writersofinstagram #herwordisgold #poetryinmotion #globalagepoetry #poetrycommunity #poetrysociety #poemoftheday #poetryisnotdead #writerscommunity #spilledwords #writingcommunity #creativewriting #writersconnection #igwritersclub #tribeofpoets #heartofpoets #writingsociety #globalpoetcult #writerssociety #justlifequotes #poetry
