Top Five Indian English Writers who Inspire in 2023

The Holistic Pine conducted a social media investigation trying to comprehend how Indian English writers handle their craft. We compiled a list of the "Top Five Indian English Writers who Inspire" in 2023 after the research. These writers, both through their literary presence, and their social media interventions, enlighten the minds of their readers on a daily basis. The Holistic Pine Grove, as one of our team members jokingly observed about our enthusiastic team, spent several hours contacting writers and interacting with them. Another instance that helped us ascertain our selection was how they responded to our team. From this, we could tell that these writers were not just showing off their personalities online but also living their lives in a constant attempt to touch people's lives. 

These writers inspire us to be hopeful about the Indian English literary scene in 2023.
