The Journey of My Life
~Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
‘The Missile Man of India’ hits the shelves with his last self-written book before vanishing into oblivion. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the 12th President of India’s journey is compiled into the pages of his autobiography, ‘The Journey of My Life’.
The book consists of ficlets of his small separate chapters clubbed together to form the in the small town of Rameswaram where Avul rose to become Kalam, India’s ‘Best Rocket Scientist’ and President.
Every important event of Kalam’s life is summarised in a singlet, each imparting an important lesson to the readers as well as serving as an important stepping stone in Avul’s journey to become what he was known for. Each chapter starts on a different note, which makes the genre of the book almost unpredictable in a unique way.
The serenity and simplicity of the book serves as a platform for its servance to a broader audience. The book is an ideal tale of India’s most respected idol and it is no secret that both adults and children will love to pluck it off the shelves.
The book almost casts a spell on you-you just can’t keep it down. It is so immersive and interactive that the readers couldn’t help but ponder upon the simple yet deep messages left the Kalam’s epic trail.
To summarize the above harangue, if you are a bibliophile, it is a must for you to pluck the book off the bookshelves of the nearest bookstore or if you’ve already have a copy, REREAD it!
