Publisher's Summary

Authored by the most influential Indian president yet, this audiobook delves into the obstacles that are preventing India from rising up to the challenge of development. 

India has unmatched talent and ambition with an inherent tendency to work hard; then what is it that keeps India from overtaking the world? Why does India as a nation settle for the ordinary when the extraordinary is well within reach?

Dr. Kalam shares his dream of a nation that is unrivaled, he discusses how he has, from his experience, met such skilled people whose visions can transform the nation. 

It is imperative that one searches for one's own solutions and find role models in countrymen instead of looking toward the other nations. India must not strive to be the next America or Japan but has to be the strong nation it is capable of becoming. For this, all the trapped energies and initiatives need to be freed instead of suppressing them.

In the audiobook, we are introduced to numerous role models who are hiding among us. Words of wisdom from saints and seers that the author encountered through his life have been quoted. The audiobook proceeds to address the issues at hand and mentions some reforms that have to be incorporated in politics and policies. 

The policy-making procedure of the nation requires major reform. The youth has to be given a stage, and the reins of the nation need to be passed on. The audiobook motivates the young minds and forces the positive auras together to build the face of a new nation.
