Sumnima Singh’s parents Dilu Singh and Anju Singh have also published a book in Nepali highlighting the support and encouragement that they provided to her while she was toiling to win the then most coveted title of Nepal’s matriculation examination. The book’s title in English can be translated as Board First Sumnima and Parent’s Role.
