When A.P.J. Abdul Kalam wrote "India 2020: A Vision for the New Millennium" with Y.S. Rajan in 1998, little did they expect the magnitude of the response they would get. The idea that India could actually be a developed nation in a short time rather than remain condemned to a subsistence diet of marginal improvements and promises struck a chord among readers. The book continues to be a bestseller. "Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power Within India" goes the logical next step and examines why, given all our skills, resources and talents, we, so obviously capable of being the best, settle so often for the worst.
