Now in paper back edition, this work examines why, given all our skills, resources and talents, we, so obviously capable of being the best, settle so often for the worst. What is it that we as a nation are missing?

At the heart of Ignited Minds is the belief that the people of a nation have the power, by dint of hard work, to realize their dream of a truly good life.

Kalam takes up different issues and themes that struck him on his pilgrimage around the country as he met thousands of schoolchildren, teachers, scientists, saints and seers in the course of two years. The result is a book that motivates us to get back on the winning track and unleash the energy within a nation that hasn’t allowed itself full reign.


Ignited Minds should be in every school bag and on the desktop of every parliamentarian, bureaucrat and industrialist in the country.
-Wilson John in Pioneer

Kalam’s Can do approach…is a lesson for all those who curl their lips at any talk of India achieving greatness in the near future.
-Raj Chengappa in India Today

Ignited Minds will fire the minds of the young to whom it is primarily addressed.
-Khushwant Singh in Outlook
