The country's future is in the hands of the teachers says former President APJ Abdul Kalam.

His modesty prevents him from adding that his latest book is being translated into four languages, including Marathi, Gujarati, Assamese and Hindi, while his earlier venture, Indomitable Spirit, went into 11 translations.
