Journey of "THE" Missile Man of our country- INDIA

Absolute pleasure knowing the humble upbringing of the people's president. Dr Abdul Kalam takes us through his life journey from the coast of Rameshwaram to holding the highest office of the country- the president and beyond to his later years of teaching the young ignited minds. Most of the topics are superficially covered as they have been referred to in his previously published books with scrupulous details. He beautifully talks about his intent for writing the book with his demeanour touch (I don't want to spoil it, so better read or listen to this book to know about it). Loved this part, no wonder he was the people's president.
Now that I have completed this book, he mentions about the 2020 plan, I wonder if anyone remembers his vision for "India 2020"? We are literally 11 months away from 2020 and the goal is far from sight.
