The brainchild behind the program, C. K. Shrestha enthralled the audience with the recitation of his poem which appealed the listeners present on the occasion to act united towards strengthening and mobilizing every possible resource to protect, promote and popularize the works of literary genius like Mahakavi Devkota and Adi Kavi Bhanu Bhakta Acharya.

There has to be many more such seminars and programs, only then can one understand to some extent the charismatic personality  of Laxmi Prasad Devkota”.
