Former President Kalam’s Book launched in South Africa

Former President APJ Abdul Kalam’s book ‘Transendence’ was launched in Africa with religious leaders, politicians, diplomats and businessmen from all communities sharing the lessons from the book based on his spiritual experiences with Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
The book, in which Kalam details his experiences with Pramukh Swami Maharaj, leader of the global Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), was lauded by speakers who said they had benefited from the advice and wisdom of both the leaders.
During the book launch , Provincial Transport Minister Ismail Vadi said the lessons of Transcendence could be well utilised by leaders and citizens of South Africa to address the social crises facing the country such as corruption, poverty and unemployment.
Prof Arun Tiwari, who co-authored the book with Kalam, said the friendship of the two leaders, one a highly-acclaimed scientist and the other a spiritual leader, showed that setting aside religious and cultural differences could lead to a better world for all.
