About this Item

What is to become or me? How can I set out on my own into a world that seems filled with conflict and strife? How do I cope with day-to-day pressures? How can my life be useful and happy? These and others such questions are frequently put by the students and young professionals, to the visionary President of India wherever he goes. Guiding Souls : Dialogues on the Purpose of Life offers answers to many such questions. Structured as dialogues between Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and Prof. Arun K. Tiwari, his friend and co-author of Wings of Fire, this book outlines a Spiritual approach to life. Appealing to the innocent creativity of youth, the book rejects both extremes-hype and hoop-la of Globalization and the pessimism of seeing the world as a theatre of conflict-and describes the ultimate goal and mission of humanity as constituting the task of helping evolution on planet Earth. The book covers a wide spectrum of History and human activity. It evokes the presence of some great human beings who walked on this planet as exemplars for the ideals presented in the book.
