Author: A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is one of the few very I sincerely respect. The way he has walked through life from being a nobody to the 11th president of India. And he has been able to do this solely because of his talent, determination and lots of hard-work.
Ignited minds is a book which really stands true to its title. This is one book which every Indian student or for that matter every student should read. This book analyses India's potential, its resources and asks a very important question that why haven't we been able to achieve what we should have by now, what are we missing?? Dr. Kalam narrates various incidents from his own life in this book and talks about how he never felt defeated in his failures and took them as important lessons in life. He talks about various students, teachers, schools , colleges and many other visionaries like Mr. Ratan Tata, Mr. Azim Premji and how their work is helping to shape a better future for India.
Dr. Kalam gives no prescribed solution to our problems in this book, but he does lead us to a path on which we can find it.
