Creativity has no limits. It can come in any form and manner. And believe me, this creativity kept me entertained the entire lockdown. Wondering how? Well, by following some of the best Instagram accounts. The lockdown gave a podium for content creators to showcase their best skills, and that legacy eventually continued. These creators were limited to YouTube, TikTok, while later being the most famous. However, with the TikTok ban, guess who benefited the most – Instagram.
Instagram Reels brought a ray of hope to many content creators to come up with short videos, challenges, and so much more. Therefore, I decided to compile a list of the best Indian accounts to follow on Instagram. These accounts were a huge relief for me in my good and bad times. I hope the same works for you!
Which are the best Indian accounts to follow on Instagram?
1. Humans of Bombay

My list is incomplete if I fail to mention this page. If you think your life is hell, then please go through this page for positivity. It has an inspirational compilation of stories that will melt your heart. I started believing in goodness after following this Instagram account.
2. Abhi & Niyu
Why to follow: Current affairs
Many people comment on the condition of the country but never come up with a lucrative solution. But Abhi and Niyu are an exception! They highlight the plight, trending news, and social cause but at the same time suggest solutions. Implementing these solutions might be a hurricane task, but at least they do not beat around the bush. Truly one of the best Indian accounts to follow on Instagram.
