Rhymly Startup Story


I, Arpan Khosla, have been a performing poet & writer for the last 12 years & have always wondered, 

“Why is writing always so time-consuming?”

“ Does it always have to be a lonely act or can writers take some digital help?”

“Shouldn’t creativity matter more than vocabulary?”

“& most importantly, if the media and content industry is seeing a massive tilt towards the vernacular, can’t there be a rhyming platform just for Indian languages serving the creativity needs of our own writing community?”

Well, I didn’t want to have a big writer’s block on this idea so, in December 2017, me, Vishal & Aakansha started working on a platform that would empower everyone to be at least a rhymer if not a writer by encouraging users to share their passion and creative expression through short poems, shayari, quotes, couplets, jingles & songs. Consequently, in March 2018 Rhymly was born.

Rhymly is India’s 1st Hindi Rhyming App that democratizes creative writing. We have a database of 100000 words. We help:

  1. Poets, copywriters, songwriters & rappers find 50+ rhymes for every word they search for
  2. Give them English translations & Hindi transliterations of words thus, making Rhymly a one-stop content tech platform. 
  3. Creators create better quality written pieces, enhance their creativity through community-generated thoughts, and ideas & also help writers find the right word thus, eliminating writer’s block.
  4. Writers get featured, and share ideas, and original content with others on the app thus, making Rhymly an upcoming social network.

We have seen over 50000 users on our app & website combined. Over 73000 original content pieces have been written by our creators. We have been featured by over 20+ platforms including Hindustan Times, The Tech Panda, Scoopearth, Startups India, Radio City,  etc.

As more and more Indians come online and start interacting with social media, our mission is to help them realize the power of rhyming, create original & profound thoughts, go multilingual with Urdu, Bengali & Punjabi as the next updates & in the long run help writers earn their bread via our platform.

So whether you’re looking to put on the finishing touches of a love or heartbreak poem, bust out the next rap lyric, or just seek some clever wordplay, give the Rhymly app a try!
