Being a typical voracious reader..I hog on to almost anything and everything that comes my way..( But just until my curiosity is working..).Once I loose my wonderment to know about the book or the story..I give up the read..(Which I think is normal..). Along with reading another good habit (gud..Err..Rather irritating..) Is that once I read something..I love narrating it to anyone I know..
Hmm..So cumin back to the topic of my latesht “BOOK-ISHTAAN-BOOKEDVENTURE”..I read INDIA 2020 by our very own..”long-weird hairdo uncle” APJ Abdul kalam..na yaar!!serious respect to the ultimate person he is and all his work for ‘apna india’ deserves a heartfelt appreciation..(thank u APJAK uncle)..
About the book..-india 2020..as the name says is a vision of india in year 2020 (and though it takes a lot more hrz..once u read the book u will definitely prefer it over a show of love story 2050)..so the book narrating the present situation of developing india provides a blue-print for the india-to-come..APJAK uncle’s unmovable confidence and his potentiality to accost the problems at the roots makes listening to him a job difficult to resist…believe me guyz..(though I’ve neva talked to him personally but weneva I hear him speaking on the television , I feel a connection, I sit glued to the TV and feel that wateva hez speaking..is especially for me..only me..thanx to his ultimate verbalising abilities…sir,im a fan!! ok..ok back to book(*apology*, this carking habit of mine is a total problem!!)
Now lemme quote a few of my favorite lines from the book :-
“in the field of space technology, we started from a scratch to have today a system of satellite based communication linking remote regions of the country. The same sense of purpose can lead us to success in many other areas crucial to achieving the goal of a prosperous, strong nation..” w-o-w…(applause!!)
Now letz see wat tribune quotes about the book :-
“this is no ordinary book..it should be in all libraries and on the desk of every individual who dreams about the future of india…”
As APJAK uncle says..he dedicates his book to a little girl who when asked about her dream..she said..”I want to live in a developed india”..
Well, now to put it in a nutshell, for all the young-ishtaan wasi who feel or who want to know about what can they do for india. Go get a copy and see for yourself..!! and no worries guyz..there is definitely something for everyone……
The ending backdrop:- (here we have a song for every feeling, I just love Indian music industry)
“saathi hath badhaan..
Ek akela thak jaega,
Milkar bojh uthana..
Sathi hath badhana..”
Signing off from book-ishtaan..!!
Think high..Fly higher.!!
