A product of six years of hard toil, poring over notes many a night"[18].The film director Ram Gopal Varma harshly criticized the book in an open letter, where he stated that Raju Ravitej misrepresented the idea of co-author Pawan Kalyan, the leader of Jana Sena. He stated that "there’s more instinctive wisdom in Pawan Kalyan himself than in the entire non-explanatory book of 'ISM'".[19][20] From 2014 Raju Ravitej was not actively involved in political work untill 2018 when he resumed participating in the activities of the party.[21][22]
