  • Description
    It was like any other day on the Anna University campus in Chennai. As I was returning to my room in the evening, the vice-chancellor, Prof. A. Kalanidhi, fell in step with me. Someone had been frantically trying to get in touch with me through the day, he said. Indeed, the phone was ringing when I entered the room. When I answered, a voice at the other end said, 'The prime minister wants to talk with you.' Some months earlier, I had left my post as Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India to return to teaching. Now, as I spoke to the PM, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, my life was set for an unexpected change. Turning Points takes up the incredible Kalam story from where Wings of Fire left off. It brings together details from his career and presidency that are not generally known as he speaks out for the first time on certain points of controversy. It is a continuing saga, above all, of a journey - individual and collective - that will take India to 2020 and beyond as a developed nation.

    Result Oriented Approaches

    I always thought the post of President was to do nothing but keep approving what the PM proposes. But the way APJ has articulated and the initiatives he has taken in during his presidency has created a terrific bench mark. it is a pity that the successor(s) donot have the outlook or the caliber or the attitude to carryout such initiatives... Kalam the greatest President of Modern India..Take a bow

    Inspirational..

    There are no words to express about our APJ sir.. He is one of the most respectable person in India and abroad. I Always wanted to read his books but did not get right time. This time i order two of his masterpiece Wings of Fire and Turning Points at a time and completed both of them within a week. Both are inspirational and must be read by each and every human being. Salute to the Father of India's Nuclear Project!

    Great Kalam Sir

    I have read all books of APJ sir. And this is awesome. Turning Points simply describes the journey of APJ sir during Presidency. He describes the Turning Points in his life as well which sequentially made him reside in Rastrapathi Bhavan. Takes us through the ideas, his vision, various initiatives during presidency. It would have been more interesting if we are also given the present status or stage of the initiatives taken. The implementation status is not at all described on any initiatives...
