I feel myself very fortunate to read this book. “Wings of fire” is an autobiography of the former president of India Dr. A. P.J. Abdul Kalam. In this book he tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who had big dreams about his future and what inspired him to become an eminent scientist. The narration is simple, direct and shows how a boy with humble background from a remote corner of India could dream of aeronautics, rocket science and missiles. In this book he touches so many things like his family and the cordial relationship between Hindus and Muslims.
The book starts with his personal information regarding his family, tradition, childhood and education, then he shares his experiences of those days which he spent in India’s premier R&D organizations like DRDO, ISRO. Through out this book he shares those moments, which inspired him to maintain his focus towards realizing his dreams of becoming an atomic scientist.
This book is a must read for every Indian especially for youth, it is a great source of inspiration for those young guys who want to achieve something in their lives. It is my duty to let you know few important things about the missile man.
