The poetry of Bhuwan Thapaliya is the poetry of each and every one of us. Mr. Thapaliya has the uncanny ability to appeal to hearts, minds and souls in such beautiful ways that even the pictures of disillusionment, pain and loss that he paints leave us with a sense of romanticism that is ultimately optimistic. Optimistic because Bhuwan Thapaliya always shows us the answer: love, and freedom from the illusion of separation. His romantic poetry will never be out of date because Bhuwan Thapaliya’s natural talent for this form of writing reaches deep inside our hearts, and squeezes them like sponges ... cleansing us of our hardness, our cynicism and our ignorance. If only just for one or two glorious moments, we feel humane ... and at one with our surroundings. Bhuwan Thapaliya is not just a young man in love with the notion of love. He has seen suffering, and felt the pain that life endows upon us all – both individually, and collectively. He speaks with the impatient passion and intuited authority of youth and, at the same time, with the peaceful acceptance and learned humility of those who are twice his age. This poet understands both the effects of poetry, and its importance. Bhuwan Thapaliya has an important function in a world that is desperately in need of voices conveying hope, as well as voices that would point a finger and exclaim: "we can do better than this!" Bhuwan Thapaliya is our conscience. His poetry is our pride, our reality reaching towards our dream ... our hope.
