Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, India’s most loved president, a visionary and country’s most respect thinker and statesman. Dr. Kalam deserves every single adjective that can be associated with progress, futuristic and pragmatic approach towards everything and after reading his biography I strongly believe that there is nothing that determination, perseverance and hardwork can’t make a person achieve whatever he wishes to. The book is extremely nostalgic, highly honest and deeply personal and inspire you at various levels when you are reading it. One has to read a sentence, ponder over it and then move on to the next one, that’s how a reader can enjoy this exceptionally candid piece of writing by Dr. Kalam himself.
This book was again sent to me by publishers along with The Race Of My Life by Milkha Singh ji and both these books have been brilliant reads. From a small boy growing up in South India to becoming country’s president, life was not so easy for Dr. Kalam but he excelled at everything he did. His desire to learn and openness towards everything is what inspired him profoundly. He has shared many key moments of his life, small and big and how they influenced his personality, thinking and vision. His deep love for God and his father have been closest to him and his mother and mentors are the key people behind shaping his thoughts and outlook towards everything.
Each chapter of this book will teach reader a lesson if he is willing to learn it. Definitely one of my best reads in recent past, I strongly recommend this book to everyone who dreams big and wishes to achieve it all someday like Dr. Kalam did.
