COMMENTS:

‘…a fascinating piece of literature which carries a very powerful message for the youth of this world to follow values and objectives that transcend a mechanical existence.’
== Dr. R. K. Pachauri, Chairman IPCC – co-recipient Nobel Peace Prize, 2007


‘I feel blessed that True Dummy is starting its journey from India, a land of storytellers, where the first fabulist of the world – the creator of Panchatantra – Vishnu Sharma was born; where the pious spirits of Baba Bulleb Shah, Rahim and Kabir still rove freely. ‘Most of this ‘fable of existence’ has been sewed inside Linacre Library, Oxford University while sitting on the same chair; at exactly the same place. Although I spent countless nights inside the library writing all alone, I never felt so. I was at the Yale University when I had to write its ending. I moved from library to library but could not find a place with the same serenity. Finally, it was a small corner of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies where True Dummy concluded itself.’
== Ashish Jaiswal
