There are many Instagram pages revolving around food, but not all of them are original and unique enough to be noticed at a first glance. One guy from India, named Himanshu Sehgal, started an account named My Yellow Plate and it quickly gained over 40,000 followers.
“My Yellow Plate was not intentional. I never planned that I would pick up a yellow plate and go out looking for food,” Sehgal starts his story. “One fine day in 2015, my mom served me Rajma Chawal on this yellow plate. No one knows where it came from, it was just there in the kitchen. I remember taking a picture of it and sharing it on my personal Instagram profile.”
“It wasn’t a great shot but it still clicked with the viewers, getting several likes and comments from friends and family,” he continues. “This was probably because most Indian households use either steel thalis or pastel-colored crockery and a bright yellow plate was conspicuous. Intrigued, I decided to carry the yellow plate along with me while traveling. Every time I would eat on it, I would share it with people and let them know what’s on my yellow plate.”
