Book Review #49 : Pupil’s President
The students’ diligent teacher, the nation’s gifted scientist, the humble ‘People’s President’ - an indefinable name he is. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. A man who dedicated his life and work to the betterment of a nation, and his time and energy to the billions of young minds he wished to ignite. He has left back dreams in everyone, and the undying inspiration to make those dreams come true. A surfeit of contents has been interwoven to give this book a shape. To read through the pages will mean a journey through his life in entirety. Besides Kalam’s own speeches and quotes, it also contains literary tributes by scientists, academicians and students, the interviews of his family members, and a real-time anecdote of his interment ceremony at Rameswaram. This isn’t just a tribute, but a world beyond it to be read, explored and discovered.
A child from a small village, poor family backdrop, who supports his family by selling newspapers makes it big and becomes the President of India! Why? Because, he always had the desire to learn and know new things. He always dreamt big, no matter what. He became a scientist and eventually India’s President too. He made many people realize the power of dreams. Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam, he is.
This man dedicated all his life for the betterment of the nation and continues to inspire so many people! His contribution to nuclear science is well known to the whole country. He was a part of various committees and headed many.
His contribution and vision to science made a huge difference in the development of our country.
The cover of the book has A.P.J Abdul Kalam sir’s picture and the book demands your attention. This book relives his journey as a scientist, leader, contributor, teacher, author. His simple life is described.
He loved sharing knowledge and teaching children. His life and quotes both serve as a huge inspiration for all of us.
This book is very well written, with easy to understand language. It ignites your dreams and inspires you to strive harder to achieve your goals.
As you browse through the pages, you feel you are actually having a watch over Kalam sir’s entire life. A very well shaped book.
Besides Kalam sir’s own speeches and quotes, this book also contains literary tributes by scientists, academicians and students, the interviews of his family members, and a real-time anecdote of his interment ceremony at Rameshwaram. This book isn’t just a tribute, but a world beyond it to be read, explored and discovered, truly.
Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam has been an inspiration for me. Without any doubts, I totally recommend it to everyone who wants to stay inspired and motivated always! The book is worth it!
Recommended for the people who enjoy biographies. A.P.J Kalam is someone you would really enjoy knowing up, close and personal.
