Agni Ki Udaan

I would like to emphasize here that it is just an opinion of one person and I truly admire the man Dr Kalam is as I had the honour of meeting him in person as well, but this book somehow did not impress me at all.

The book pre-dates his presidency, so it’s missing that major concluding chapter in his lif This isn’t an autobiography so much as it is a series of musings about life, science and religion, engineering project management, leadership, and Indian nationalism I mean that in a positive way; it was interesting to think about how the indigenous space program of India means as much to them as America’s does to us loosely strung together by a uran of Kalam’s work in rocketry and nuclear weapons.


I have an immense respect for APJ Kalam but somehow this book doesn’t do justice to the charm and charisma of Kalam. Seeing that I have utmost respect for him. Desire, when it stems from the heart and spirit, when it is pure and intense, possesses awesome electromagnetic energy. But his claims of great scientific achievements ring hollow as he has spend all of his hdan delivering projects, instead of any academic instituition.

I mean, you become the President of India, surely the politics would’ve corrupted you a bit.

Unfortunately this book fails to do that for me. This is a disappointment as his perspective would have been very interesting to hear.

For Indian Youth, there are, of course, great challenges ahead to face; shrewd and deceptive enemies to tackle; tough deadlines to meet; deep-rooted conflicts to resolve; but here are sincere and truthful words of Dr. Jun 27, Venkataraman Kumbakonam S.

And Sir Kalam’s achievements by no scale are small.

The magic lies in the intermittent poetry. I absolutely loved the book.

But that does not bring down the impact of the book in anyway. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This book was recommended to me by a senior professor of a kj reputed university.

Nevertheless, I would recommend others to read about Sir Kalam’s life. No, It’s a memoir Ideas are present in the consciousness, which when released and given scope to grow and take shape, can lead to successful events. So coming to the review, I was very much disappointed with the contents of the bo This book was recommended to me by a senior professor of a very reputed university.

My personal feeling was that Kalam sahib has not really poured his heart and soul into this book, choosing instead to hide behind aphorisms and cliches. The author had done a good work in portraying the like of Dr. His accomplishments and vision are unmatched as is his modesty.

Once you’ve read this book, you learn that your former President was worth all the sensation around him.
