ABSTRACT:
Wings of Fire is an autobiography of APJ Abdul Kalam. It portrays the story of Kalam, who later became an accomplished scientist who led India’s efforts towards developing missiles and conducting space exploration. This paper examines Kalam's life story as a fascinating example of a shift from the local to the universal and explores how Kalam's upbringing and schooling in a small hamlet influenced his ideals and way of thinking, as well as how he later rose to prominence in India's scientific and technological community. The study also examines Kalam's involvement in promoting education and renewable energy in India, in addition to his contributions to the advancement of missile and space technology. It also shows how Kalam's story is representative of India's broader story of becoming a world leader in science and technology. Additionally, it might look at how Kalam's leadership and principles affected others and motivated a generation of scientists and leaders in India and beyond. Finally, the piece may be concluded by discussing the lessons that can be drawn from Kalam's journey, and how they can be applied to promote social and economic growth in other contexts.
