We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire.
Wings of Fire is an extraordinary story that journeys the life of A P J Abdul Kalam starting from his childhood as a common boat-owner’s son in the island-town of Rameswaram, to his emergence as one of India’s most distinguished citizens. In a manner that is modest and self-effacing, Kalam traces his life as a son, student, engineer, scientist and leader, and ascribes his achievements to the influence of his parents, mentors and teachers. He also describes the role of many visionary geniuses and their contributions to independent India’s struggle for technological self-sufficiency.
Textured with music and background score, A P J Abdul Kalam’s unique autobiography finds voice through the narration and rich timbre of Girish Karnad in this gripping abridged audiobook.
