Since forever, India has been a melting pot of (showing the ability to create interesting new things)people- writers, poets(Amazing Women Poets and Mens also), artists, sculptors, people(who make money from playing music), etc. who have shaped our history and culture.

In the performing area of poetry, it is easy enough to name men – from Rabindranath Tagore to Nissim Ezekiel to Sumitranandan Pant – who have added/have given to the wealth of Indian books, but most of us are left stumped at the hope of/future of naming female poets.

She Gets 1st position in our heart for Amazing Women Poets in India
“Don’t write in English, they said, English is
Not your mother-tongue.Why not leave
Me alone, critics, friends, visiting cousins,
Every one of you? Why not let me speak in
Any language I like? The language I speak,
Becomes mine, its distortions, its queernesses
All mine, mine alone.” – from An Introduction, Kamala Das.

She Gets 2nd position in our heart for Amazing Women Poets in India
Known as the ‘Nightingale Of India,’ Sarojini Naidu was a freedom-fighter, speaker, manager and poetess. Though she is equally well-known for leading many efforts for the freedom struggle, poetry remained her first passion. Encouraged by her father at a young age, her first work was a poem that was 1300 lines long. When this was presented to the then Nizam of Hyderabad, he was so impressed that she was soon off to study at King’s College on (a sum of money received to help pay for college) from the Nizam’s own school. Her works in English had a clearly Indian soul. She rose to recognition when her collection of poems, The Golden(dividing line/point where something begins or changes), was published in 1905. She followed this with two more collections – The Wizard Mask and A Treasury of Poems.

“The new hath come and now the old retires:
And so the past becomes a mountain-cell,
Where lone, apart, old hermit-memories dwell
In consecrated calm, forgotten yet
Of the keen heart that hastens to forget
Old longings in fulfilling new desires”- from Past and Future, Sarojini Naidu.

3. MIRA BAI 

Top 3 Most famous female Hindi poets of India
She Gets 3rd position in our heart for Amazing Women Poets in India 

Mira Bai was a 16th century Hindu poet and a very loyal follower of Krishna. She is recognised as one of the most popular faces of the Bhakti movement in India. In her poems, she praises Krishna, who she thinks about/believes her husband and his many qualities. She was born in Pali in Rajasthan and was also known for her bold and fearless paying no attention to social customs and (keeping bad memories hidden)/mistreatments.

Being an Indian, there's hardly any person who hasn't heard of these lines. The great mystic poet, musician and fan of lord Krishna, Mirabai (or Meerabai or Meera) has written/has housed down almost 1300 bhajans in Rajasthani and Brajbhasha language as well as Hindi poems which are popular across the country. Not just in India, Mirabai's poems have been translated into (more than two, but not a lot of) foreign languages throughout the world. The songs are preserved orally, and the official written forms appeared much later. She's one of the greatest and most famous Indian poets of all time.

She was born in 1499 in Marwar area of Rajasthan and her father-based side was from Rathors of Merta who worshipped Lord Vishnu. Naturally, she was raised in the middle of Vaishnava culture that attributed to her loving loyalty towards Lord Krishna. Her religious belief was so deep that she fell in love with the idol of the lord, sang and danced with the idol in extreme happiness. When she got married to Rana of Chittor, her loyal (to God) form wasn't supported by her in-laws and they tried to spread harmful lies about her. (in the end), Mira wrote a letter to Tulsidas, a famous Bhakti saint of the (very old time in history) India to ask for suggestions and upon his (opinions about what could or should be done about a situation), She walked to Brindavan, with barefoot across the desert of dry Rajasthan.

Her unafraid spirit, fearless personality and paying no attention to social (keeping bad memories hidden)/mistreatments against women, loyal (to God) strength, beautiful speech and kind heart were reflected in her prayers and songs. She was one of the strongest symbols/pictures of (very old time in history) India's Bhakti Movement who ignored social class and class, (male/female status) and (strictly following religious or social rules) religious beliefs and searched for/tried to get (saving or protecting someone from sin or harm) caring for the poor.


“I am mad with love
And no one understands my plight.
Only the wounded
Understand the agonies of the wounded,
When the fire rages in the heart.” – a translated version of I am mad with love, Mirabai
