    Description

    Ignited Minds : Unleashing The Power Within India, written by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, is about the underutilization of resources in India and how such potential can be tapped.

    Summary Of The Book

    Why does such an abundant country like India not use its resources to the maximum? Why is the country still struggling with a developing economy? Ignited Minds : Unleashing The Power Within India aims to answer these questions and more. It conducts a logical analysis as to why the country’s resources are not being used for the betterment of the society.

    The narrative starts with the description of an accident that the author had. He describes how he dreamt of personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein after the accident. Kalam discusses how this dream helped him focus on the problems of the country. He talks about how the role of teachers needs to be modified to obtain the best out of the students. Kalam also speaks of visionaries such as J. R.

    D. Tata and Satish Dhawan. The author focuses on how such wisdom will help the country develop. He urges readers to change their mindset by looking at the present situation with an open mind. The book talks about the risks that need to be taken, the technology that has to be utilized and the dedication for the country that must be present to actually unleash the power of the mind for the benefit of the country.

    Ignited Minds : Unleashing The Power Within India has been used by the former President to address questions of his own as well as those put forth by children, scientists, tutors, and saints that he met on his tour of the country. He has highlighted the basic concerns deemed as unnecessary in relation to the dire problems facing the country.

    The eleven chapters of the book transcend religion and provides an unbiased view of the country and the probable solutions. It aims at exploring the hidden potential of the people by changing the belief system and bringing the country on the winning track. The book was first published in 2002.

    Irony.A great Man sadly book did not live up to my expectations.

    I personally subscribe religiously to Mr Kalam's views.But what I find Odd in this book is the numerous occasions where there are references made to the Almighty.The things should be left in his/her hand.
    Although he used,on many occasions,the examples figuratively.Its gives a sense of escapism somewhere.
    Otherwise the book is a good read.
    Writing skills,as for Mr. Kalam is a simple job.
