P. J. Abdul Kalam. The event in Bangalore is a great opportunity to meet Mr. Srijan Pal Singh, who co-authored the book with Dr. Kalam.
Having worked closely with Dr. Kalam, Mr. Singh is privy to the youth icon's vision for the country like no one else, and is sure to share several interesting anecdotes from their conversations with each other. In the book, Advantage India, Dr. Kalam and Mr. Singh speak of the potential impact of initiatives such as Swacch Bharat, and Make in India.
