"A festival with great potential. Happy to give a few pointers for smoother rollout. And the VoW tag differentiates it from the proliferation of local festivals"

"देहरादून की लिट फेस्ट की परिकल्पना ही ऐसी अनूठी रही और उस पर संजीव चोपड़ा दम्पती के साथ आप और आपके अलावा अन्य सभी सहचिंतक, सहयोगी, इस परिकल्पना को साकार देने में जो दरियादिली और कर्मठता दिखाई, उसने मन मुग्ध कर दिया। सब कुछ बहुत संजीदगी भरा था। तीन दिनों की मीठी यादें लिए हुए और देहरादून वैली की गूंज अपनी स्मृतियों की जेबों में भरे हुए।"
"देहरादून में वैली ऑफ वर्ड्स की ओर से आयोजित साहित्य उत्सव इस नगर के लिए ही नहीं, पूरे उत्तराखंड राज्य के लिए जीवनदायक था. इसकी परिकल्पना जितनी खूबसूरत थी, संयोजन उतना ही भव्य. मैं समझ नहीं पा रहा हूँ कि किन शब्दों में आप के प्रति आभार व्यक्त करूँ. दरअसल, यह आयोजन कर पूरे देश के लिटफेस्ट वालों को आइना दिखाया है."
