Mission India: A Vision for Indian Youth
Mission India: A Vision for Indian Youth
Description
From the Jacket:

'Each and every Indian can make a difference, especially the nation's youh'

Mission India is a road map for the youth of today who will shape the India of tomorrow. The mission is to transform India into a developed nation and one of the world's top five economical powers by the year 2020. Dr. A.P.J.Abdul Kalam and Y.S.Rajan examine India's strengths and weaknesses to show how this goal is not an unrealistic one.

This inspirational book introduces children to the unknown success stories of India and discusses the country's problems at the beginning of the twenty-five century. It looks at different aspects of national life, and clearly explains the achievements and challenges in each of these areas. It also discusses the ways in which today's youth can make a difference to the country.

Based on the central tenets of the runaway best-seller India 2020: A Vision for the New Millennium, this book seeks to inspire readers with the crucial sense of purpose which is essential for developing a strong and prosperous nation.

As chairman of Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC), he guided a number of technology projects and missions to take India into the twenty-first century. The TIFAC's document on Technology Vision 2020 is a blueprint to make India a developed country. A.P.J.Abdul Kalam held various positions in Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and became Principal Scientist Adviser to the Government of India. He has the unique honour of receiving honorary doctorates from thirty universities and country's three highest civilian honours - Padma Bhushan (1981), Padma Vibhushan (1990) and Bharat Ratna (1997).

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
