Summary of Wings Of Fire
Wings of Fire is an Autobiography of Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, written by Arun Tewari.
Dr.Avur Pakir Jainallubdin Abdul Kalam is a recipient of the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour. He had previously been awarded the Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. More recently, Dr. Kalam has been nominated as the candidate for India's Presidency by the National Democratic Alliance and Congress parties, a well-deserved honour.
This book may by far be the most inspiring auto-biography published in recent years.
Dr. Kalam calls to each of us to give Wings to the divine fire we have within ourselves, and fill the world with the glow of its goodness.
The book is biographical, but it is also about Science and Technology. Dr. Kalam writes about a sculpture he saw at NASA where he was initiated into Rocket Engineering, "a charioteer driving two horses, one representing scientific research and the other technological development, metaphorically encapsulating the interconnection between research and development."
Under Dr. Kalam's leadership, India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) achieved some of the nation's highest goals. This book is also about the lessons Dr. Kalam learnt about managing teams and motivating people working on technology projects. About innovating, inspiring, and mentoring people.
The book is divided into four sections - Orientation (1931-63), Creation (1963-80), Propitiation (1981-91) and Contemplation (beyong 1991).
The orientation phase deals with his growing up years. The creation phase deals with his years at ISRO, and the way India was launched into the Space Age, becoming the fifth country to launch a satellite, making Dr. Kalam one of the best-known scientific figures. The Propitiation phase concentrates on years in Defence and the missile program. The final Contemplation phase is about Dr. Kalam rising up to lead India's Science and Technology, and the responsibility of India's defence technology.
Dr. Kalam's austere life, his simplicity, and his insight, all come across clearly in this book. It tells the story of an ordinary Indian with an extraordinary love for his country. A spiritual man with a scientific passion.
We know of a CEO of a company, who after reading this book, called all the employees in for a meeting to tell them about the enormous passion and positivism it conveys.
Fabmart is proud to recommend 'Wings of Fire' - a must-read for every Indian.
