My book wings of fire covered my life upto 1992 ever since it was published in 1999 the response has been astounding and the book has sold more that a million copies. More heartening still it appears to have made a positive impact on thousands of people,helping them change their lives for the better.

However,my reasons for writing turning points were slightly different seeing the response generated by wings of fire 1 felt that if in the same way this book too could benefit a few people it would be well worth the effort. Infactif even one person or one family find their life changing for the better because of something gleaned from this book for you , dear reader.

As i wrote turning points the thought occured to me why i was writing the book one could say that my story echoes the concrns anxieties and aspirations of many indians like them i started my life from the lowest step in the ladder my first job was as senior scientific assistant.Gradually i moved upto greater
responsibilities,finally assuming the office of president of india ,
one could say that it hs been a very intense experience.
