About Dr A P J Abdul Kalam

Former and most popular president of India Dr Abdul Kalam, full name Dr Avul Pakir Jainullabdeen Abdul Kalam, do not need any further introduction still there are many points about his life which we do not know. Abdul Kalam was born on 15 Oct, 1931 in temple town of Tamil Nadu Ramshwaram. He father was fisherman and devoted Muslim. Financial condition of his father was not very sound and mostly, Abdul Kalam and his five brothers and sister have to pass through tuff time due to financial crisis.

Despite all the problems, Abdul Kalam remain determined in achieving new heights in life with the help of number of friends, relatives and well-wishers. His life is full of number of messages like completing our dreams despite all difficulties, doing something for our nation and people, doing selfless service for nation and respecting all religions. Dr Abdul Kalam is a Muslim; however, in his conduct he never gave any wrong message to people of other religions during his life, therefore, large numbers of people across religious respect him for his great work.

For all this, Dr Kalam gives credit to number of his Hindu and other religion friends, who have provided great help to him during his life. He still remembers his teacher Chidambara Subramaniam, who helped Dr Kalam in entering Sheward High School, Ramananthapuram by convincing his family to send him there. Dr Kalam did his graduation in Physics from St Joseph College, Trichinapally. Later, Dr Kalam got admission in Madras Institute of Technology, thanks to her sister, who took loan against her jewellery for paying entrance fee.

Dr Abdul Kalam’s life is full of many such inspirations for all the youths of India and world. After education, Dr Kalam joined Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) as joiner research scientist in 1958. Soon he shifted to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for doing research in the field of satellite and launch capabilities. Later, he became the Project Director of SLV-3 and Rohini projects and gave India Prithvi, Agni, Trishul, Akas etc. Though Dr Kalam never took the credit for this success and shared his success with his co-workers.

His common belief is that “Strength respects strength and technology honours technology”, therefore, he tried everything to make India self reliant in the field of space technology and missile defence. In 2002, he became first scientist president of India. During his tenure as president of India, he becomes so popular that people started describing him as people’s president. He opened the door of President Place to general public of India which mostly remain closed to people during other president’s rule.

This simple man achieved great heights in every field in which he served people of India. Due to his selfless approach to all the works done by him, he is popularly known as Best President of India, Fire man, Missile Man etc. It is very difficult for people of India to forget his contribution in various fields. Moreover, his greatness can be judged from the fact that he has again decided to teach students after becoming revealed from President Office in 2007. In future, also we can hope that life of President Kalam will remain major source of inspiration for large number of people across India and world.
