There’s one person our entire nation looks up to respectfully. Yes, none other than Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Dr. Kalam has led a life that has inspired the youngsters in an entire country. Now that’s a life worth living. From an absolutely great career as a defense scientist, to winning the highest civilian award of India, the Bharat Ratna – This book Wings of Fire An Autobiography takes you through a life well-lived.
APJ Abdul Kalam also served as the 11th President of India from 2002-2007. Truly a President every Indian remembers very dearly. Its good to look up to people who have achieved some remarkable targets in life. Who better than Dr. Kalam?
Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, the son of a little-educated boat-owner in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, had an unparalleled career as a defence scientist, culminating in the highest civilian award of India, the Bharat Ratna. As chief of the country’s defence research and development programme, Kalam demonstrated the great potential for dynamism and innovation that existed in seemingly moribund research establishments. This is the story of Kalam’s rise from obscurity and his personal and professional struggles, as well as the story of Agni, Prithvi, Akash, Trishul and Nag-missiles that have become household names in India and that have raised the nation to the level of a missile power of international reckoning. This is also the saga of independent India’s struggle for technological self-sufficiency and defensive autonomy-a story as much about politics, domestic and international, as it is about science.
