    Amazing Book
    Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s book, WINGS OF FIRE is more than an autobiography. Written with the main intention of bestowing clarity and vision to the Youth in general, Indian Youth in particular, the book is inter alia, a history of Indian rocket launching and defense research; and partly a work of sound philosophy that would inspire any Indian.
