REVIEWS
Ramendra Kumar seems to understand child psychology too well and he knows what would mould or move the young minds easily. The stories written by him are based on valued education which is very important in today’s world. Ramendra, in a small way, has been passing on the message to inculcate good values in the children. 
Hitavada     

Ramendra Kumar’s perception of the children’s world, his eye for detail and his ability to locate his themes in ordinary and contemporary life situations make his stories that much more meaningful and relevant. 

Deccan Herald     

Kumar’s stories are as much for children as for the parents. These are simple yet touching tales inspired by everyday characters and happenings a child can easily relate to. His stories are refreshingly different and departure from the usual run of the mill adventure stories and fairy tales.

The Hindustan Times     

In ‘A Hudson View’ there is such an eclectic mix of poetry with a myriad of themes, formats, structures, metres and styles, which reflects its world-wide status. The poems here touch the heart in as many ways and poetry should touch the heart.

One poem that really made me feel what the poet wanted to say was ‘My Hero’ by Ramendra Kumar. It made me remember my own father and it is what I would have wanted to say to him, but he died before I could – ‘I am sorry,/But I love you more than anyone ever can.”

A review by Vivien Steels     
Deepti Naval's poem "Smita and I" only emphasizes Ramendra Kumar's startlingly contradictory
observations in "Memories": 
Like henna
From your hands
My memories,
Fading with time.

Like tattoo
Carved on my psyche
Your memories,
Everlasting…
Eternal...
A few poems are so many scenes played in everyone's life that I found myself nodding my head
in agreement, recalling just such in a scene my own life.
Contemplations on
Existence,
Over
Cups of tea
Through
A haze
Of cigarette smoke.
('The New Intellectual' by Ramendra Kumar)
