Rohan Nijhawan

Rohan Nijhawan

Rohan Nijhawan is a 29-year-old Cambridge born poet, Rasta, and Revolutionary. Born with a one of a kind unknown disease, Rohan has experienced the ups and downs in life. Although he has a disability, Rohan does not let that disability define him. He has been skydiving twice in California, mountain biking in Colorado, and snorkeling in Jamaica. In December of 2019, Rohan had a very profound meeting with His Holiness, The Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. His Holiness and Rohan shared a laugh and touched foreheads with each other. Rohan is a self-described life of the party as many of his friends can attest to. He gave his friends and family a challenge: describe his poetry in one word. Some of the words that came up were: revolutionary, smooth-truths, insightful and introspective. Rohan tells a powerful story through his poetry and activism. The biggest influence in his poetry, and, for that matter, his life is The Legend himself, Robert Nesta Marley. Rohan has already written 2 books (both are still unpublished) and has about 700 pieces to his name. Last year his poem, “Haiku Blues” was the winner of the Cambridge, Massachusetts Sidewalk Poetry Contest and his poem was embedded in concrete. He has sold out both of his previous features at the Lizard Lounge with lines as long as 30 people waiting to get in. “Get there early, or miss out on a fantastic show!”, says Rohan.
