“Over the years I have read innumerable books. But if I were asked to name those that are most dear to me, or the ones that affected me deeply, I would mention three. The first is called Light from Many Lamps, edited by Lillian Eichler Watson. I consider the book to be my companion, because I have leafed through it and read and reread it so many times over the years that I have possessed it.” — Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam


Being a great fan of Dr.Kalam, i bought this book. Obviously it is great and excellent. Every page has a message and moral. This book is for people who have a great thirst for achievement in life.Forget the past,set new goals and achieve them.!! –Loganathan on Apr 16, 2012


Anyone who wants everyday dosage of inspiration they can randomly open a page and they will be filled with enthusiasm and great energy. This book is a collection of several stories of person who made mistake and finally realize their mistake and get over their life. Someone said:”Your life is not so long to make mistake and learn from them so its better learn from others mistake.” A good dose for depression patient. –-Sharad Kiyal on Aug 17, 2012


As the name suggests, it is indeed ideas from several distinguished people and sources and a great way to inspire oneself…. I’d say I had related a lot to Thoreau and found myself at peace reading this delight. I must convey my sincere regards to Dr. Kalam for setting out the name of this book in his interview. Thoreau says ” What means the most common , most universal fact – that some soul that has lost all inspiration for itself, can inspire in another listening soul, an immense confidence even while it is expressing it’s despair” Salut, salut salut…to all the great thinkers and those who endeavour to make a difference to other people’s lives –Sidhartha Panda on Mar 1, 2015
