Igniting the Dormant Power : A call from the Missile Man of India

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”  ~ Goethe

What’s different between an animal and a human ? It is the power of imagination and the ability to dream. But we settle for the minimum, afraid of failure and rejection. We easily lose hope and accept defeat. According to science, for every thought born in our mind, there is a chemical reaction that takes place driving our emotions. If the thought is pondered upon repeatedly, it triggers our actions, and eventually makes a home in our minds, finally becoming a habit. Our engagement with the same pattern of “think-feel-do” leads to imprinting of the blueprint in our subconscious mind. And subconscious mind drives 95% of our life on automation. As DR. Bruce Lipton explains:

“Neuroscientists have shown that most of our decisions, actions, emotions and behaviour depend on the 95% of brain activity that is beyond our conscious awareness, which means that 95% of our life comes from the programming in our subconscious mind.”

DR. APJ Abdul Kalam, Missile Man of India

At the heart of the book, Ignited Minds, lies the motivation to dream, to believe in ourselves and break the manacles of poverty. Today we are about to complete 73 years of independence, but our roots are yet to be strong. The country which was once rich not only in resources but also in knowledge, has lowered its ambitions after the British rule. We need to bounce back to the status that we had, we must learn from our mistakes, dream, innovate and strive to be better. The author, DR. APJ Abdul Kalam, Missile Man of India has cited various instances of his life and the experiences he had, to motivate us. Albert Einstein had once stated,

“We owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discoveries could have been made”.

DR. APJ Abdul Kalam, Missile Man of India

Our nation has creativity laced in embroideries, dug in the farmlands, hung on the banner or boards of local stores. We have our local brands in every nook and corner of streets, villages and rural or urban areas. We have immense ignited minds in search of opportunity. We have seamless stream of ideas stuck, where basic amenities of life are hard to find. To harness such innovations and ideas, to stop them from degrading, there is a greater role of education and even greater role of each one of us. We need to invest in knowledge and technology to be able to produce manufactures and services which will help India. The book Ignited Minds is a pioneer of our true potential, it describes all our shortcomings and its effective solutions. A must-read to unleash the mantras that can take us closer to become a developed nation.
