Wings of Fire

Announcement Date: 20 July 2011

Anand’s American friend Steve knew about Anand’s pursuit of his dream. He invited him to America and told him that he would try to get some help from there. Anand thought, “The big decisions of life are taken by one’s own intuition and from the inner voice” and hence Anand decided to go to America. Though there was opposition from the members of his family he stuck to his decision. After getting the required permission, his brother-in-law borrowed money for his airfare. Without buying a return ticket, he went after his dreams and finalized going to America. At Mumbai, his plane took off at 3 a.m and his dream soared. He looked down…Entire Mumbai was sleeping whereas Anand was awake…He had finally provided wings to his dreams . . . wings of fire… He remembered the lines from The book ‘Wings of Fire’ by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam :

“Don’t worry and fret, fainthearted, The chances have just begun, For the best jobs haven’t been started, The best work hasn’t been done”
