Story Of the great Indian legend - Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam 

 Full name : Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam

1. Dr. Kalam was born in Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu on October 15, 1931, to a humble boat owner. A determined soul since childhood, he started working at an early age to contribute to the family income by distributing Newspaper.
2. He was brought up in a multi-religious, tolerant society; one with a progressive outlook.
He overcame all odds and carried on to pursue graduation in physics and later study aerospace engineering on a scholarship.
3. Kalam used to get up at 4 am, bathe, and then go for his mathematics class, which was taught by a teacher who took only five students in the whole session; and bathing before class was a condition he had laid to all his students.
4. Dr. Vikram Sarabhai acted as the mentor and guide of Kalam. He gave Kalam valuable advice on how to always reach for the stars.
5. In 2003 and in 2006 he was nominated for the MTV Youth Icon of the Year award.
6. A co worker had promised his kids that he would take them to the local carnival after returning from work, the co-worker had also obtained the prior permission of Mr.Kalam to leave early. The colleague was involved in his work that it was well into and then he realised that he had made a promise to his kids. On rushing back home, he came to know through his wife that Mr.Kalam had come earlier and taken his kids to the carnival.
7. Once, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam rejected the suggestion to put broken glass on the wall of DRDO building that needed protection. Because broken glass would be harmful for birds!
8. As President, When youngsters & teenagers requested a meeting with President Kalam, the President not only obliged and gave the kids his precious time, but he also listened carefully to the ideas the kids had!
9. Soon after it was declared that Dr. Kalam would be the next President, he visited a modest school to deliver a speech. Suddenly power went off but He walked right in the middle of the crowd and asked the students to surround him.
