Simple words spoken directly from the heart, revealing President Kalam's deep
concern for vital issues. Reflecting upon a wide range of themes of abiding
human, national and global concerns, Dr Kalam's inspiring, almost magical words
engage and captivate the reader's mind and heart.
Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, the eleventh President of India, has
indeed captured the imagination of the people of India, like no other President
ever before. Reaching out to the people of the country, especially the children,
he has endeared himself with his simple style and imaginative thinking. His
'Vision 2020' - a dream for Developed India, has become a rallying point for
people across all segments, and today we are all inspired with the glimmer of a
better tomorrow. His own life reflects a dream-like rise, from the shores of
Rameswaram to the hallowed Rashtrapati Bhawan, his journey is a story of
indomitable spirit conquering all odds and emerging victorious.
Indomitable Spirit brings together the values, thoughts and ideals of
President Kalam. Interspersed with interesting anecdotes and observations,
Indomitable Spirit represents the quintessential A P J Abdul Kalam - the man,
the scientist, the teacher and the President.
Autobiographical, inspirational, philosophical and yet pragmatic and realistic -
Indomitable Spirit is a unique blend of all these and more, which fires the
reader's imagination and inspires with the thought that "anything is
possible." As Mahatma Gandhi said, "Strength does not come from
physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will."
