Wings of Fire -- A Good Book Reading for Self-Improvement

Wings of Fire -- A Good Book Reading for Self-Improvement

While casually reading through the books in the library on Saturday, there was a reference book entitled "Wings of Fire" by Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. Even glancing through a couple of pages, it was an excellent reading and a must for everyone.

The book is actually a biography and by far, the most inspiring biography that has been published in recent years. Dr. Kalam calls to each of us to give Wings to the divine fire within one's self and thus fill or illuminate the world with the glow of its goodness and brightness.

The book is divided into four main parts:
  1. Orientation
  2. Creation
  3. Propitation
  4. Contemplation

The orientation phase describes Kalam's tender years till his employment. The creation phase deals with his career at ISRO.The propitation phase explains about his experiences with the defence and missile program. The contemplation phase deals with Kalam rising up to lead India's science and technology and the responsibility of India's science and technology.

You can check out 'Wings of Fire' from your nearest bookshops or check out one of the following online stores:

  1. FabMall
  2. Amazon

There is also a Tamil Version of 'Wings of Fire' called 'Agni Siragugal' selling heavily in Chennai.
