Realising a dream
"What is it that we are missing? What is it that needs to be corrected? There seems to be an attitude problem, as if we cannot shake ourselves out of a mindset of limited achievement."
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power Within India examines why, given all our skills, resources and talents, we, so obviously capable of being the best, often settle for the worst.
What is it that we as a nation are missing? For at the heart of the book is an irresistible premise: the people of a nation have the power, by dint of hard work, to realise their dream of a truly good life.
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam offers no formulaic prescription in this book. Instead, he takes up different issues and themes that struck him on his pilgrimage around the country across two years.
He sees the book as helping to motivate us to get back on the winning track.
