This work features a biographical sketch of an eminent scientist whose achievements are unique in the annals of scientific history. Commonly called the Missile Man, born at Rameswaram in a humble family background.
He has a chequered career of five decades. His great contribution in Prithvi, Akash, Agni, Nag, Pokharan II and other scientific achievements have been highlighted in this work. Thus, one could say with confidence that the last few decades were most unique regarding the development of rocketry and Dr Kalam’s contribution in this context is unmatched and highly appreciable.
The theme has been weaved into twenty chapters, each is well-colored in proper hue having deep bearing on his grand scientific career. This work, without any doubt, would be very useful for scientists, engineers, bureaucrats, politicians, teachers and students in India and abroad.
