Incomplete narration

Truely inspirational

I loved the inspirational life of Abdul Kalam. But I feel many things are skipped in audio that are there in book.

not the full book

It is such a juvenile thought that this great book was not potent and appealing enough that the text had to be diluted with jarring music and background scores. Girish Karnad has a brilliant voice as a narrator which unfortunately gets wasted in this miopic rendition of a great book by Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. Made me feel extremely dissatisfied and like a spoiler to the actual book.

eternal listening experience

I cant review it. it is beyond my expectations. It helped me to understand a leader. A grayness of Indian scientists community.A lion heart who shares his failure without fear. A calm man who shares his achievements and his feelings towards Indian vision of self reliance.

Must Listen it!

Dr. Kalam's is really an inspiration for someone who will try to learn from his life and teaching! While listening it remember perfection lies in focusing on minute details....... Thank you Dr. Kalam!
