Publisher's Summary

This book is an account of how Dr. Kalam visualizes Information and Communication Technology mining the rural talent. Here, Dr. Kalam presents his dream of schools in India in 2020 as symbiotic nerve centres connecting teachers, students and community; personifying knowledge that exists in the world. 

He also makes a clarion call to accelerate the process of societal transformation. This would involve raising the standards of governance and safeguarding the sanctity of public institutions. The book uses the metaphor of a tree to describe the process of knowledge bearing fruits of prosperity in the contemporary globalised world, where different phases, formative, adult working life, and post-50 experienced senior citizens, call for different kinds of learning. 

The book refers to a contextual contribution of a large number of Indian scientists and artists and proves that there is no age bar to blossom. He advocates creation of conditions that favour growth of diverse individual talents akin to a garden and calls for a scientific mind-set guided by conscience, consensus and actions that take our social and moral values into account in building our own systems.
