Wonderland is one of his most celebrated books
With an experience of more than two decades in children's writing, Kartikeya has mastered with sophistication all the fine nuances of children's literature. Besides writing, he has travelled to various nooks and crannies of Nepal, told stories to children, taught and tutored them in writing and expressing themselves, and raised voice for their rights. His writings are compulsory parts of many libraries across the country. He is also founder of Kartikeya Child Talent Award Trust that finds and awards talented but underprivileged children every year. Children's Literature Foundation Nepal, an organization working in the field of children's literature and rights, is his brainchild.
Wonderland is one of his most celebrated books, A blend of fantasy and facts, the book makes an implicit appeal for children's participation in the development of the country. He urges for the need to plant democratic and adminstrative visions in children's mind right from childhood days, and the need to teach them to dream high about their nations. Through the story of Kanchhi and Beeru, he has articulated his vision and dream about the future of today's children.
