"What would you like to be remembered for? You have to evolve yourself and shape your life. You should write it on a page. That page maybe a very important page in the book of human history. And you will be remembered for creating that one page in the history of the nation - whether that page is the page of invention, the page of innovation or the page of discovery or the page of fighting injustice..."

Simple words spoken directly from the heart, revealing President Kalam's deep concern for vital issues. Reflecting upon a wide range of themes of abiding human, national and global concerns, Dr Kalam's inspiring, almost magical words engage and captivate the reader's mind and heart.

Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, the eleventh President of India, has indeed captured the imagination of the people of India, like no other President ever before. Reaching out to the people of the country, especially the children, he has endeared himself with his simple style and imaginative thinking. His 'Vision 2020' - a dream for Developed India, has become a rallying point for people across all segments, and today we are all inspired with the glimmer of a better tomorrow. His own life reflects a dream-like rise, from the shores of Rameswaram to the hallowed Rashtrapati Bhawan, his journey is a story of indomitable spirit conquering all odds and emerging victorious.

Indomitable Spirit brings together the values, thoughts and ideals of President Kalam. Interspersed with interesting anecdotes and observations, Indomitable Spirit represents the quintessential A P J Abdul Kalam - the man, the scientist, the teacher and the President.

Autobiographical, inspirational, philosophical and yet pragmatic and realistic - Indomitable Spirit is a unique blend of all these and more, which fires the reader's imagination and inspires with the thought that "anything is possible." As Mahatma Gandhi said, "Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will."

Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam

Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam was born on October 15, 1931. He became the eleventh President of India in July 2002 after a distinguished scientific career in defence and space research where he was responsible for, among other things, developing India's first satellite launch vehicle SLV-3.

He has the unique honour of being the recipient of the country's top civilian awards: the Padma Bhushan in 1981, and Padma Vibhushan in 1991 and the Bharat Ratna in 1997.
