You Are Born To Blossom

By

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

Now available in the Library

(Call No.: 158.1  ABD-Y)

You Are Born to Blossom is a book about scientist and philosopher Dr. A P J Abdul Kalams vision of a new India that enumerates the most vital facets of education and their contributions in building a better workforce for societal prosperity and development.Co-authored with engineer, scientist and erstwhile pupil Professor Arun K. Tiwari, the book delves into the vivid life events of Dr. Kalam, which have taken him through varied corners of the country. The former President of India, who is known for his valuable insights on social progress, has met thousands of school students on various occasions over the last five years, and recognised a prime necessity for the perfect fusion of quality education and proper guidance. Penned down with much hopes of creating awareness about the strengths of knowledge, the book promises to refurbish the missing link in the modus operandi of the Idealists and the Globals in achieving their goals. The speedy and substantial progress of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the wide possibilities at its disposal have been highlighted as the key factor for this specific purpose. The book encompasses the different stages of human life to emphasise on the common goal of unearthing the tremendous resources and support systems implicit in the field of education. It mentions about the school days of Dr. Kalam and his friend Kota Harinarayana (former chief of Indias Light Combat Aircraft Development Programme) when vision and inspiration were the only tools to keep the fire of aspiration burning in a not-so advanced educational system. The book serves its purpose well in inspiring young minds to open their doors of creative perception and pour out their latent skills when they are most needed for national growth. While education is the most powerful instrument in building a stable and mature society, every reader will realise how best to utilise the available resources in fulfilling hisher responsibility. The book has aptly been structured under eight chapters, each one depicting the sequential paths to human fulfilment, with the finale resting on education as a spiritual journey. ISBN – 8184300360
