Modelled after the famed Best American Poetry (BAP), Best Indian Poetry intends to help foreign readers of poetry break ice with poetry from India. In this measure, the idea supports literary journals for their hard work toward shaping world literature and Indian poets of all stature with substantial contribution to Indian and therefore world literature.
- “Salaryman” by Abul Kalam Azad (selected for inclusion in Best Indian Poetry 2018)
- “The Inner Duel” by Ashish Khetarpal
- “The Long Walk Of Ours” by Shikhandin (selected for inclusion in Best Indian Poetry 2018)
Congratulations to these three poets and good luck!
