The book was introduced by Professor Abhi Subedi.

"The release of the second edition of the book 'Imagine Rainbow' published by the Rainbow Project Switzerland, and of a music CD titled 'Himalaya' took place at 3 pm on Friday November 13 at the Dhokaima Café in Yala Maya Kendra, Patan. Imagine Rainbow is essentially a yellow-page book with contacts and information of artists worldwide. Edited by Thomas Bertschi, Imagine Rainbow was first released 10 years back in 1999 in German. The second edition is an updated version in English, which also includes a DVD with seven films of projects done by the Rainbow Project Switzerland." Republica, 12.11.2009

"The 13th of November, 2009 was a pleasant Friday evening. The day marked the much awaited launch of the book 'Imagine Rainbow' by the Swiss author, Thomas Bertschi, and the release of the CD 'Himalaya', compiled by various musicians of Nepal and children from the NGO, Mitrata Nepal. The crowded room was filled with a heavy silence after Thomas's powerful speech. This was followed by a touching performance by the sarangi player, Shyam Nepali. The audience was enchanted." ECS Magazine, January 2010
