Why Abdul kalam is one of the best teacher of India and designated himself as a teacher ?

India is a great country with a lot of youths, lot of religion, lot of rituals, lot of respect, lot of opportunity. But what is not there is a clear vision. The youth is the strongest part of our country, where vision is blur. Who needs a guidance. And the work was done by Abdul kalam . His own ideology was that for a great India we should have a clear vision.

The designation of teacher was most liked by him. Once in a interview given to NDTV he said, to the host don't call me politician or a President or ex- President call me a teacher. Because he loves to teach children, he love to give advice to every youth. In most of his interview he first comes, don't even introduce himself and asked the gathering to ask their questions. And the proud thing was that while delivering a lecture at Indian Institute of management(IIM) shillong, kalam collapsed and died from and apparent cardiac arrest. His age was 83 ,when he died. That what mean that he died also addressing the children and teaching them, motivating them. His life is a self teaching module and his Abdul kalam quote will inspire the smallest bone of our body.

A small APJ Abdul kalam biography (small glimpse of his life)

APJ Abdul kalam birthday is on October 15, 1931. He was Born in Rameshswaram of Tamil Nadu, India. He has literally seven member in his family and what was his source of income? They have from a poor economic background , he start supporting his family finance by selling newspapers at a very young age. But he continue his study and later . He earned a degree in aeronautical engineering from the Madras Institute of Technology. In 1958 joined the Defence research and development organisation(DRDO). But he was not there for  a long time. He moved to ISRO (Indian space research organisation) where he was the project director of the project SLV-III. It was India's first Indigeneously  designed and produced satellite launch vehicle. After that he again rejoined DRDO in 1982.

How he named as the missile man ?

Abdul kalam was named missile man because he planned a program that produced no. of successful missiles. He served as scientific advisor to the defence minister for 5 years and again after he served for principal scientific advisor to the government when he was cabinet minister.

Great vision of 2020

In 1998 Technology vision 2020 , a plan proposed and given by Abdul kalam in the country (India) which is basically a road map for India to become a less  developed to a developed society in 20 years. Basically in the year 2020. And we know what wrong is going across the  country not only the country but the whole world . And its very sad that he died at 2015, yes its still a mission but he made very big changes in India. The plan includes emphasizing technology increasing agricultural productivity, economic growth and widely access to health care and education.

How he elected as the President of India ?

Kalam easily won the election because the opposition party, also proposed his candidacy. He became India's 11th president in 2002. Kalam missed an opportunity to become an fighter pilot for the Indian Air force. I would say god had done the right thing , otherwise may be we will not able to get all the lessons and achievements. He get the distinction of holding decorates from over 40 universities across the world. On the occassion of his birthday the united Nation had declared to observe it as world's student day in the year 2015.

 Kalam's visit to the Switzerland is commemorated as science day in the country. He had hidden fondness of playing veena (a musical instrument). He had written many  books in his life span and his life , ignited minds about some science , facts, his ideology. Which becomes best seller in the country and outside the country and outside the country also Abdul kalam Death was the most shocking day of the country in which every person mourned from him and prayed for the peace of his soul. Rest in peace Dr. Kalam.

A.p.j. abdul kalam quotes.  On dreams


This all sort of things are for people who get demotivated in small things people don't even know who he was. I am not saying make him idea whereas you should make him as ideal. Everyone has their own role model. But after knowing his ideology I can assure you, you will follow his path, get motivated.

A lot of stories he said many times but its remained for some other day. Being a human he loved everyone even his last breath was during a lecture in IIM (shillong). We will not be like him but we could follow him . My effort is to just spreading something he taught us and try to make our life better. And this is 2020 his aim for a developed country we had to try this and make our efforts to the infinity APJ Abdul Kalam will be in our heart. And his teachings will be in our life ethics and ideology.   

                    stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy.
