Dr. Kalam has once again teamed up with his friend, Arun Tiwari, and through a series of dialogues, presented his complex ideas on the success of the IT and human resource industries in India. They have candidly chronicled the truth as they see it, but with respect to each other's viewpoints. Even as the wealth has seemingly grown in India due to the IT and HR boom, the inequality has still broadened and many cons have surfaced in the private sectors as well. There have been civil movements against corruption, creating an impression of anarchy and distrust. Amidst his displeasure with the existing state of affairs, Dr. Kalam recalls the rational fight initiated by Socrates against the rule of autocracy and feels duty-bound to express his concerns.
