‘The story of my life has grow to be intertwined with the story of this country. And somewhere along the way, as I met 1,000,000 children across this land, I too learnt from 1,000,000 minds. This book was once not written to only tell my story. I want each and every young reader to think that this book is his or her story too.’
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam has been one of the vital iconic figures of Independent India. A scientist, leader, thinker, teacher and creator, he achieved remarkable success in more than a few fields.
