‘The courage and determination that give Upali and Jinna heroic stature in the eyes of the reader, is a product of their unyielding physical and mental strength. Their intelligence confronts and overcomes the handicap of a deficient education. Upali is a hero who overflows with an extraordinary human vitality.’
Professor I. Scavetch, Bruno University.
