My Journey (Telugu, Paperback, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam)
My Journey - Transforming Dreams into
Actions documents the life of a young boy from Rameshwaram, who not only became
a renowned scientist in India, but also held the highest post
that the country could ever offer. Through the course of this book, Kalam tells
his readers about key events in his life that brought him to where he
is, today. Kalam doesnt only talk about him being Indias former President, but
as a boy, son, student and scientist. Kalams hometown, Rameshwaram,
was indeed a serene place to dwell.
Kalam speaks about his dream of becoming a fighter pilot, which crashed as he was awarded the ninth position among 25 candidates, with the selected ones being the top eight. Kalam recalls his dream of flying a machine as it rises higher into the stratosphere. He tells the readers that he received two interview calls, one from the Directorate of Technical Development and Production (DTDP) and the other from the Indian Air Force, Dehradun. Kalam goes on to explain that the DTDP interview was fairly easy, but for the Air Force, he needed to have a certain level of 'smartness', apart from the qualifications and practical knowledge.
