Vinati Bhola is an internationally published poet based in Delhi, India. She works as a lawyer but falls back on poetry, time and again to keep up with the monotony of everyday life.
Her first collection of poems 'Udaari' is an unbridled downpour of love, madness, chaos and calm that gradually sweeps in at the end. It revolves around the theme of self-love and how empowering it is to let ourselves grow even if it means breaking into shards and picking up the pieces to heal with more mettle.
be a wildflower.
your heart beats.
The word 'Udaari', taken from the Punjabi language means to fly, to spread the wings and take a leap, a quiet soar against the wind.
In 2017, Vinati was invited to launch Udaari at the 'Dear India' campaign hosted by Level Shoes in Dubai where she was the only poet representing India. Ever since the launch of her maiden collection, Vinati's poems have been featured on platforms like Hindustan Times, Harper Bazaar, Cosmopolitan India, Terribly Tiny Tales to name a few.
