Of cour Collection Wings of Fire is a collection of events happened in the author’s life and his thoughts about them. It agnicuirakukal the first authentic volume on India’s Space Odyssey.


As motivating as it was, it was quite dragging given the technical nature of the writing and the domain of rocketry. I absolutely loved the book. For they have their own thoughts.

I cannot not mention the deep sense of patriotism he weaves along in this story, convincing ever-skeptical Indians of their rightful place in the global technological map, while still on Indian soil. Any achievement- big or small is an achievement and only The All Knowing knows how much effort an individual puts in achieving a particular goal.

Agnichirakukal Abridged Edition | By A P J Abdul Kalam | DC Books

A P J Abdul Kalam. The scientific terminologies spanning some pages are a little off putting but even among these are hidden his words of wisdom. Nevertheless, I would recommend others to read about Sir Kalam’s life. Lists with This Book. This book is a quality book, no doubt, but it focuses more on details of ISRO than his own life.


The book is truly inspirational. I’ve to start the sequel very soon. This autobiographical account gets a bit technical due to in-depth explanation of rocketry, missiles and other technical stuff which makes it difficult to understand and a bit dull.

This is the story of Kalam’s rise from obscurity and his personal and professional struggles, as agnichirakukzl as the story of Agni, Prithvi, Akash, Trishul and Nag-missiles that have become household names in India and that have raised the agnichira,ukal to the level of a missile power of international reckoning.

Go and take it in one shot. This story will end with me, for I have no belongings in the worldly sense. But the writing style of the book is what failed to keep me hooked.

Yes, despite the fact that the book is more about India’s journey to Rocket science, despite the fact that I did not understood a major chunk of the sentences, I was not able to put it down till I finished reading it. Towards the end I kept on turning the page, reading on with a goal to finish a book that I started but I felt disconnect from the proceedings. It is inspiring to know how a common man like Abdul Kalam wrote his destiny with hard work and perseverance, and with that took rocketry in India to new heights.

This is also the saga of independent India’s struggle for technological self-sufficiency and defensive autonomy-a story as much about politics, domestic and international, as it is about science.

Gratitude expressed to all the people who played an important part in Sir Kalam’s life and the history of Indian Space and Missile research came out on paper directly from Sir Kalam’s heart. This is the first Autobiography I have read. This is a disappointment as his perspective would have been very interesting to hear.


However it is a peek into his personal life which was solely and completely focused on his work-it practically defined him, leaving no scope for any other aspects of regular life.

The is amazing and will totally inspire you. This autobiographical account gets a bit technical due to in-depth explanation of rocketry, miss This book is a must read for every Indian to know one of the greatest men of our country.


The emotions of despair, disappointment, and ecstasy of achievements came forth very well in the book. I gave up at the last or the second chapter from agnicirakukal last.

The real gem of book lies in excerpts of poems which have been aptly compiled and written upto. No trivia or quizzes yet. I had to push myself to keep going with the content this book provides. They come through you but not from you.

HTML is not translated! This autobiography doesn’t only give account of his life, but also of the great minds like Vikram Sarabhai, Satish Dhawan, Brahm Prakash and many more. His journey is no less than exciting, and a testament to India’s rising in space and technology field. He wanted everyone to have wings of fire, whether he was talking about rockets or in life.

The book did speak to me about my own choices and priorities, both professional and personal.

How much hard work have been put to make this happen. J Abdul Kalam 2 34 Jan 20,
