15 Oct : A salute to the Missile man

Dream… Dream… Dream… Dreams transform into thoughts and thoughts result in action.

Have you heard of any person who lived life the way he wanted and got desirable death. I know one. That’s our former President, Scientist and Visionary… A P J Abdul Kalam. The most simple man I know.

Born today in 1931 in Rameshwaram, Tamilnadu, Kalam was a completely different child. He knew his way and followed his heart whole life. He has contributed his best to the India’s civilian space programme and military missile development efforts. He thus came to be known as the Missile Man of India.

He neither married, nor had kids but he was never without family. You would not have seen him alone ever. He was always surrounded by his well wishers.
He even died in 2015 in his favourite company, while giving lecture to students. His innocent smile would be remembered forever.

आज भारत के पूर्व राष्ट्रपति डॉक्टर ए. पी. जे. अब्दुल कलाम का जन्म हुआ था। 1931 में तमिलनाडु के रामेश्वरम में जन्मे डॉक्टर ए.पी. जे. अब्दुल कलाम को भारत के अंतरिक्ष कार्यक्रम और मिसाइल प्रोग्राम में अपने अहम योगदान के लिए जाना जाता है। डॉक्टर कलाम ने खास तौर पर Agni और Prithvi जैसी missiles के विकास में प्रमुख भूमिका निभाई। उन्हें बैलेस्टिक मिसाइल और launch vehicle technology के विकास के लिए भारत के मिसाइल मैन के नाम से जाना जाता है।
