Turning Points: A Journey Through Challenges by A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

The inspiring sequel to Wings of Fire. Over 3 lakh copies sold. It was like any other day on the Anna University campus in Chennai. As I was returning to my room in the evening, the vice-chancellor, Prof. A. Kalanidhi, fell in step with me. Someone had been frantically trying to get in touch with me through the day, he said. Indeed, the phone was ringing when I entered the room. When I answered, a voice at the other end said, The prime minister wants to talk with you. Some months earlier, I had left my post as Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India to return to teaching. Now, as I spoke to the PM, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, my life was set for an unexpected change. Turning Points takes up the incredible Kalam story from where Wings of Fire left off. It brings together details from his career and presidency that are not generally known as he speaks out for the first time on certain points of controversy. It is a continuing saga, above all, of a journey - individual and collective - that will take India to 2020 and beyond as a developed nation.

Book Review – ‘Turning Points’ – A Journey Through Challenges

Other books by Kalam : Target 3 Billion. Wings Of Fire. Abdul Kalam showed interest in becoming the President of India again, but later withdrew from the race when it became clear that he did not have numbers. His image remained intact thanks to quick realization of politics behind announcing his name from nowhere by opportunistic political parties. Vision — that grand vision for India to make it a developed nation by — is what Kalam breathes, and tries to inspire youth to strive towards achieving this goal. Surely, he had more interesting stories to share from his personal point of view, but he consciously chooses to avoid sharing such events in this book. He was still a scientist at that time, and it is rare for Prime Ministers to ask someone outside from politics to become part of government.
