Wings of Fire:

It's an autobiography of Missile Man and former President APJ Abdul Kalam. In the book, Kalam examined his early life, effort, hardship, fortitude, luck and chance that eventually led him to lead Indian space research, nuclear and missile programmes.


Ignited Minds:

The former President Kalam had dedicated Ignited Minds to an intermediate student Snehal Thakkar whom he met at a school. During the talks, a question had come up: 'Who is our enemy?' Kalam recalled that Snehal Thakkar had replied, “Our enemy is poverty.” The book contains dynamic and original ideas, examines attitudes afflicting the Indians and presents ways for emerging as a developed nation.



India 2020:

 A Vision for the New Millennium: APJ  Abdul Kalam had penned down this book before his tenure as the President of India. The book throws light on the weakness and the strength of the country and offers a vision of how India can emerge to be among the world's first four economic powers by 2020. The book is dedicated to a young girl whom Kalam met and asked as 'what is your dream'. She replied, "I want to live in a developed India."


The Luminous Sparks:

It's a poetry book. In his message to the readers, APJ Abdul Kalam said, "Successful leaders can never be defeated by problems. They become master of the situation and defeat the problems." Poems are the result of peak happiness or sorrow. Common traits of both happiness and sorrow are tears. In one case, tears will be sweet. In another case, it will be salty. Human life is a combination of both.

Guiding Souls:

Composed as dialogue, this book focuses on spiritual approach to life. Appealing to the innocent youths and  their creativity, the book rejects both extremes- hype and hoop-la of globalization and the pessimism of seeing the world as a theater of conflict. It describes the ultimate goal and mission of humanity as the task of helping evolution on the earth.
