No doubt, it was a heartening journey with lots of challenges and sweetness in the form of success. He belonged from such a place where the people would likely be unheard of any caste or religion. Such fraternity which he never forgets even after becoming president of INDIA. Needless to say, he was the only powerful man who didn't have any critics. Everyone appreciated him for his generosity and for his vast knowledge of science, literature and religion. He was truly a great Indian and his teachings will always have an indelible impression to the people.
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was one of the contemprory heros who helped our nation to reach to new heights, he contributed to nation with his skills, determination and leadership that helped India and made self reliant in the field of space research. Apart of these qualities, His keen interest in sharing his knowledge and deep love for children is something that everyone will remember him for. In this book missileman has penned his transformation from a village simpleton to scientist, various transitions in his life and motivations to pursue in certain direction, is very well documented in his lucid and easy going language. I am sure knowing the man who went from nowhere to NASA and occupied the chair in highest office of our country, his experience has quite an amount of learning for readers of every age. Simplicity was his lifestyle and each and every page of this book is a living proof of that. Go for it, worth reading as it was a life well spent.
At the end of the book...He wrote that his personality was due to the germination of good thoughts that were planted into his soul by his great teachers.....This book also planted good thoughts into my mind and I'm sure I got some inspiration through his life lessons and I must say this book will definitely make an impact on one's mind and create an emotional balance in one's life ....It is a must read book for all
Our honourable people's president does a great job in this book provoking the inner self of the readers to ponder over the moments of his life.
