Product Description

In 1998, Dr. Kalam and Y.S. Rajan printed the now iconic India 2020, a vision document for the new era that recorded how India could become one of the top five economic powers in the world by 2020. Sixteen years later, as the year 2020 approaches, it is time to take routine of how much India has accomplished and what lies ahead. In many ways, India’s growth story in the twenty-first century has been restricted by lost chances and stoppages in project accomplishment, but it has also been marked by new chances and developing technologies that make faster and more comprehensive growth practical.

A new policy focus is now needed for agriculture, manufacturing, mining, the chemicals industry, health care and infrastructure to invigorate these sectors and boost economic growth, argue Kalam and Rajan. Alongside, education, job making, developing technologies, biodiversity, waste organization, national safety and the information economy are some of the other important zones that we need to form on as we look beyond 2020. India can still make it to the list of advanced nations in a decade. Beyond 2020 offers an action plan for that change.

About Author

AVUL PAKIR JAINULABDEEN ABDUL KALAM was the eleventh President of India, from 2002 to 2007. He is a recipient of the Padma Bhushan, the Padma Vibhushan and the nation's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna. Born in 1931 in Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu, Dr Kalam studied aeronautical engineering at the Madras Institute of Technology. He played a key role in the development of India's first satellite launch vehicle, the SLV-3; in the building and operationalization of India's strategic missile systems; and in the 1998 nuclear tests. As an elder statesman, he remains in the public eye for his role in offering counsel, reaching out to people and building bridges across religious and social divides. Dr Kalam's focus stays on transforming India into a developed nation by 2020 and to this end he continues to travel across the country for his teaching assignments at IITs and IIMs, to address conferences and to meet students and people from all walks of life. V. PONRAJ is a scientist from ADA (Aeronautical Development Agency), DRDO, Bangalore. He worked with Dr Kalam as an advisor on science and technology and public policy from 2007 to 2014. He was the director (technology interface) at the President's Secretariat from 2003 to 2007. He has worked closely on developed India missions pioneered by Dr Kalam and is presently working on a Ph.D.
