Brand Ambassador of Forest and Environment department of Assam, Ananda Khataniiyar said, "As I work towards conservation of flora and fauna I observed Sasanka's inquisitiveness and his keen observation of flora and fauna perhaps he had made certain observations before such predictions." "He also helped me a lot in Environment awareness programme including plantation drives." He added.
