· कल्पना,.....स्नेह.....आपका मैत्री का आमंत्रण पाकर अच्छा लगा।......कोलकाता में उस दिन मंच पर आपके साथ खड़ा होकर आपकी बातें सुनने के बाद और भिखारी ठाकुर के गीतों को आपने जिस आत्मीयता और गम्भीरता से गाया है उसे सुनने के बाद मैं बेहद प्रसन्न हुआ।....;आम तौर पर भोजपुरी के आज के गायकों की मेरे मन में छवि बहुत अच्छी नहीं है, पर आपने मेरी धारणा बदल दी।.....;आप सफल हों और आपका गायन भारतीय समाज के सुख-दुख की सहज अभिव्यक्ति बने , यही कामना है। मेरी शुभकामनाएं.....आप अगर लिखना चाहें तो अंग्रेजी में भी लिख सकती हैं।

Thank u Kalpana for your endivour. I really appreciate for this type of work. About 18 years ago, when I was on my work place at Chapra I also searched the books and literatures of Bhikhari Thakur, but in vain. I heartly respect Bhikhari Thakur. Once again thank you Kalpana for ur courage to re – birth Bhikhari Thakur through ur album.

Like any fan, I am delighted to have a post on my fb wall by an artiste that I really enjoy listening to.
Having been brought up listening to folk songs of Bihar by the likes of Bindhyavasini Devi, I am exposed to the best traditions of bhojpuri music. And I must say, after Sharda Sinha, you have really kept upto that tradition. I should share some of the things that I really like about your renditions:
1. Though being from Assam, you have understood the soul of bhojpuri music as few others. Incidentally, I have equally enjoyed your few Assamese songs that I have heard, Hastir Koena for example.
2. You dont just sing, you get into the song with a lot of feeling. The 'bhav' of the song comes in your facial expressions and action also.
3. I really appreciate the way you have grown as an artiste, say from Arrah Hile rendition where you danced with bhojpuri actor Rinku to say your rendition of Bhikhari Thakur's self portrait.
I do hope we will continue to enjoy your beautiful bhojpuri songs in days to come.
