About the Book

A book of dreams rooted in reality. - Indian Express

In this ground-breaking vision document, first published in 1998, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam and Y. S. Rajan offer a blueprint for India to be counted among the worlds top five economic powers by the year 2020. They cite growth rates and development trends to show that the goal is not unrealistic. Past successes-the green revolution and satellite-based communication linking remote regions of the country, for instance-bear them out. The same sense of purpose can make us a prosperous, strong nation in a matter of years, assert Kalam and Rajan.

This is a book that every citizen who hopes for a better India must read. Combines the ideas of a visionary, the expertise of a great planner and the considered recommendations of some of Indias best technology experts -Business world

This is no ordinary book. It should be in all libraries and on the desk of everyone who dreams about the future of India - Tribune
