An exciting book you read or a book you read recently

● When you read it
● What type of book is it
● What is it about
● Why did you find it exciting

● I have not read many books apart from my text books.
● Here, I would like to talk about a book, which my friend gifted me, and I read it all.
● I found this book very exciting and motivating and would like to read it again.
● This book is ‘The Wings of Fire’ by Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
● My friend got this book as a prize when she participated in a declamation contest
● It is Dr.Kalam’s autobiography.
● It was first published in 1999.
● This book became popular only after Dr. Kalam became the President of India.
● He was sworn in as the president of India on 25th July 2002.
● Mr Arun Tiwari helped Dr Kalam in writing the book.
● In this book Dr. Kalam says why he wrote his autobiography.
● This book is very motivating.
● From this book I came to know all about the life and achievements of Dr A.P.J.Abdul Kalam
● Dr Kalam was born in a very poor family in the southern parts of India at
Rameshwaram.
● The reason why I admire him is that his life shows how & ordinary boy from a deprived class (poor family) could reach the highest level of the nation.
● He became not only the best rocket engineer but also the first citizen of the nation.
● It is true that he described his post as the President as a piece of luck, but his achievement as a rocket engineer was because of sheer hard work.
● He is a role model for one and all.
● The success of Dr Kalam depended on the fact that he was willing to grow daily.
● He learned everything that come to him and was always looking for things to learn.
● The real success of Dr.Kalam is in his application of the discipline, what he learned, in other fields also.
● That is why he could contribute to the making of the artificial limbs of lesser weight.

● In him we find a person with insatiable quest for knowledge & great love for suffering fellow beings.
● Unfortunately, we don’t have Dr Kalam with us today, but he will live in the hearts of all Indians.
● I would like to read this book again, because it is a very motivating book.
