Book Review: "I Am Another You" by Priya Kumar is a work of spiritual fiction and a biographical narration of enlightening travel experience by the author. This is a book that speaks of the time when the author traveled to the Netherlands in April 2004 to escape from the mundane reality. She spent close to a month living with fourth-generation shamans, a tribal native of the place and an ancient tribe who indulges in spiritual processes for their evolution and freedom. It is interesting to read the journey of a modern human among traditional humans in search of answers.

The author undertakes various rituals while among the tribesmen. One must read the book to decipher the meaning, significance, and relevance of these rituals - sweat lodge, firewalk, salt cleansing, and spiritual walk. Ultimately, it is not the processes that count but the intent and the objectives as to why they are being conducted. The purity of the environment and honesty in the mission is what gives meaning to pilgrimages. The opening chapter is titled 'The End' while the concluding one is titled 'The Beginning' which completes a circle. A person who undertakes such a spiritual training comes alive completely changed into a new more positive entity. The 'My experiences lessoned for you' in-between chapters summarise briefly the gist learned so far. It is a helpful guide to recapitulate what the author has tried to tell at intervals.

This book will appeal to a lot of readers who are looking for self-awakening as one important message hinted within these pages is the fact that the only place where the wrong can be made right is from within. A book of many lessons, many insights, and many truths, it is a well documented biographical travelogue that has the power to touch so many lives and change us for the better. The book urges one to seek light amidst unusual dark places reiterating the age old wisdom - not all those who wander are lost!
