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.

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta

In him, people are seeing a new Buddha. This incident has happened in the Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have started visiting this place.

I discussed things that give an idea about the preparedness of India and the Indian healthcare system to control the coronavirus. The first wave of coronavirus has already given many bad shocks for Indians and shown to us that how our health care system is overstretched and not up to the mark. Now the second wave of coronavirus is giving trouble to India. Already talked about it in the Last Post on Surge in Coronavirus cases in India .  The second wave of coronavirus is much bigger than the first wave and it is hitting harder the Indians and Indian healthcare system. If we look at the present situation then it looks that we have learned no lessons from the first wave of the coronavirus and never anticipated a stronger second wave of the coronavirus.
