Product description

Product Description

Dr Kalam, who was India’s eleventh President and has been a scientist and a teacher, has written more than twenty books. Ranging from inspirational and spiritual thoughts, to autobiographical reflections to his vision statements for a developed India, these works bear the imprint of a mind that is deeply reflective.
For the first time, some of the most thoughtful, inspiring and educative of these writings have been compiled in one place in The Righteous Life. Some of the essays in this volume describe his early life, family and teachers and his entry into the world of scientific development and research. Also included are his thoughts on education, governance, probity in public life, and his analysis and solutions to some of India’s problems such as corruption, energy independence and the overall development of the country.
Filled with wisdom and farsighted thinking that upholds honesty, diligence and spirituality, The Righteous Life showcases the working of one of the finest minds in the country.
