After igniting minds and adding wings of fire to the thoughts of millions of Indians, President A P J Abdul Kalam is now authoring a book which will explore how spirituality can help create a noble nation and a better world.

The scientist-President, who dreams of making India a developed country by 2020, is co-authoring his new book with Jain spiritual leader Acharya Mahapragya with whom he has been closely associated for nearly six years.

The book, the title of which is yet to be finalised, will have six chapters, three each to be written by Kalam and the Acharya.

"The book will be on healthy individuals, beautiful home, noble nations and a better world," the spiritual leader told PTI today. However, he did not elaborate on its contents.

It will have about 300 pages and is likely to be published by November.

"There has been great interest in the book from publishers around the world as this is the first time that a scientist-President is joining a spiritual leader to explore how humankind can improve," said Muni Lokprakash Lokesh, one of Acharya Mahapragya's disciples.

The President has earlier authored his best-selling autobiography 'Wings of Fire' and the popular 'Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power Within India'.
