Wings of Fire: An Autobiography is written by Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, with valuable contributions from Arun Tiwari. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam was born to a poor boat-owner in Tamil Nadu, but grew up to become one of the most influential men in India. He witnessed a meteoric rise as a defence scientist, which eventually earned him a Bharat Ratna. In fact, he is one of those rare entities, to have been granted the award along with a Padma Bhushan and a Padma Vibhushan: three of the highest honours that can be bestowed upon an Indian citizen. He has also worked previously as an aeronautical engineer with DRDO and ISRO.
But the biggest reward for his excellence came, when he was rightfully appointed as India�s eleventh president between 2002 and 2007. Often referred to as the People�s President, Dr. Kalam pioneered many changes in the country, enabling several young minds to reap the benefits of education. He is also credited for inspiring quote such as, �Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.� In this book, the beloved president explains his personal and professional struggles, and how he had to overcome them to realise his dream of one day putting India on the global map.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam has also written other books such as Ignited Minds, India 2020, Turning Points and Indomitable Spirit, which serve as motivational tools for the citizens of the country, especially the youth. Dr. Kalam envisions a prosperous future for India, provided the citizens work in unison towards achieving that goal. Arun Tiwari has contributed to other books by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam apart from Wings of Fire such as Guiding Souls.
