    6. Former President Mr. Kalam has done an excellent job in explaining with real life examples on how change can be brought. The topic is how to improve resolve issues facing rural India. In this book he cites numerous examples in different countries on how organizations (including government and non-government) get together to solve a challenge for the greater good. The language is very easy to follow and spurs our thought process.

    7. The book is rich in terms of analogies and successful examples of rural upliftment efforts done by different players through entrepreneurial activities. Through these case the concept of PURA, an environment that helps in bringing employment by best use of local resources and eventually developing the standard of living. Thus Providing Urban Amenities to Rural Areas (PURA). The only issue was it lacked crispness in writing.
