The young and gorgeous author Nidhi Manral comes from the mountain city of Dehradun. Whosoever has visited Dehradun knows once you start driving away from the city towards the mystique Mussoorie, you start feeling destressed and detoxified. This is exactly what ‘Sprinkling Poetry’ – the book authored by Nidhi does to you.
The poems from the book take you to an emotional journey. You feel traveling across a mountain of emotions and that’s where lies the success of ‘Sprinkling Poetry’. It’s not just a book – it’s a special gift which triggers and then accompanies the reader through an emotional journey. It’s simply amazing to see so much of talent on display in one single book by such an young author. Nidhi Marnal seems to be having an extremely matured head on his young shoulders. As a reader, while reading the book, you can completely understand the book is written by someone who has equal grips on two different aspects – science and literature. Perhaps, this is so as Nidhi had taken up literature for his masters after studying science during her graduation days.
We feel lucky when we get to find a book with good poems. But we tend to feel luckier when we get to see a bunch of poetic creations with which we may relate to seamlessly. The poems presented in ‘Sprinkling Poetry’ fits the bill exactly. The very first poem raises the bar and the expectation from the readers. The following poems don’t allow the bar to come down. Nidhi keeps the promise he made for herself as an author with the initial few pages of the book.
This book is a must for anyone who loves poetry. In fact, this book also is a must for those who don’t love poems – for any non-follower of the beautiful genre named poetry will start appreciating the poetry once he or she will come across a great creation like ‘Sprinkling Poetry’.
