Author Biography

Mansi Tejpal is a bilingual poet who pens poems both in Hindi and English. Her dreamlike, yet profound writing compelled the renowned publisher, Cyberwit.net to publish her first book of poems in English; Drizzling Dreams; which got a 5 Star Rating from a Reader's Favourite which has previously reviewed for the likes of Stephanie Meyer and Nicholas Sparks.

Also a famed contributor to the website Allpoetry, her soulful thoughts, expressed in winged words, speak her heart.

Her writing makes it difficult to remember, yet easy to forget oneself. Just the way its easy to disbelieve that Tejpal is only in the 18th year of her life.

"Drizzling Dreams was an unexpected gem from a promising young talent, whose work I would definitely seek out and read again in the future."- K.C. Finn, Reader's Favourite®

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Drizzling Dreams is a collection of poetry by Mansi Tejpal. Tejpal is a seventeen-year-old poet who has been writing since early childhood in both Hindi and English, and this collection promises a full range of emotional discovery with uplifting undertones. There are a total of twenty-nine poems, arranged alphabetically rather than thematically, and the style ranges from alliterative and rhyming techniques to more free verse expressions. The volume’s foreword promises a unique perspective and a voice with maturity, and I believe that’s definitely what Tejpal delivers in this short collection of ideas.

Mansi Tejpal achieves a natural sounding grace with her words, and her fluid style of expressing both images and a progressing narrative really resonated with me. I was gripped by the end of An Ode to Dear Ms. Love, which expresses subtle passions amid extremes of dark, light, life and death, and found myself thoroughly impressed with the thematic depth that Tejpal combines with such beautifully arranged words. Whilst I don’t always enjoy poets who feel the need to explain their work, the very short italicized moments that contextualize many of Tejpal’s poems gave just enough insight without overpowering the poems themselves. Partition, for example, really benefited from this device to put readers in mind of the pain and terror of political separation before the poem expresses the writer’s deep views. Overall, I’d say that Drizzling Dreams was an unexpected gem from a promising young talent, whose work I would definitely seek out and read again in the future.

It's an emotional read, for sure. I didn't expect that I would ever like a book of poems this much, but these are VERY impactful. Some of my favourite quotes are from this book, which itself is a pretty short read. However, don't pick this up if you're not in the mood to shed a few tears! Will be looking out for more from Mansi Tejpal...
