उक्त संगालोमाथि बोल्दै डॉ. गाविंदा भट्टराईले 'हिमांशु एक असाधारण बालक हुन् । उनीबाट साहित्यमा ठुलो आशा गर्न सहिन्छ । नेपाली साहित्यलाई बिस्व सामु पुराउन हिमांशु जस्ता बालकको खाचो छ अनि भबिस्यमा नेपालि साहित्य सजिलो गरि पुग्ने छ समुन्द्र पारि' भन्नु भयो ।



बिमोचन गर्दै बाल साहित्य समाजका सभापति रामबाबु सुबेदीले- 'नेपालको संकृति र साहित्यलाई बहिर पुराउन यो देश बहिर बसेका हालका यस्तै हातको योगदान रहने छ' भन्नु भयो ।

Forword by Dr. Govinda Raj Bhattarai

I had written a few words on Himanshu's works of beautiful poems last year.

Again Neelam visited Nepal with another creation of   Himanshu this year. He has got a collection of 16 write ups, so beautiful, so pleasant, so elegantly written by a boy of so tender an age.  

I feel surprised to read one of his expressions: for heaven's sake parents should listen to their children

I enjoyed reading them so such, I showed them to my daughters and wife and a couple of students. Actually I want to show them to my university students or read for them. An unimaginable thing he has done. Himanshu is a rare genius, I believe a gem. His language and his insight, his interpretation of things and connection of every event with life and practicality - so sweet and sometimes so unbelievable.

Himanshu has sweet recollections starting from the day he left Nepal and landed at New York, and years that followed, all narrated chronically-- how he got a brother, how grand parents loved him, how he visited placed from Statue of Liberty to Coney Island, and different places in between and finally Disney Land in Florida. He would  visit places, he would demand answer for every query, how honest he is about every mischief he did, how he loves his parents and brother and what an inquisitive mind he has.

This mind will become an extraordinary genius in the days to come. He is gifted with a sharp faculty of imagination and power of writing. Already he has made a valuable contribution on behalf of the second generation people of American Nepali diaspora.

I whole heatedly congratulate this child prodigy -- Himanshu and wait for another marvelous work to read next year. Congratulations to Bhaskarji and Neelam bainee. One among a million parents may be gifted with a Himanshu, believe me.
