APJ Abdul Kalam

APJ Abdul Kalam was ex-president of India.He was a great Scientist, popularly known as "Missile Man Of India" for inventing Agni, Trishul etc...
Well, this seems to be a lesson of your English Textbook, ha ha!
He was not only a president and scientist who did so much for INDIA but he is also an example, an inspiration...
Born in 1931 in the streets of Rameshwaram, APJ lead a poor life but didn't give up his dreams...
He used to study sitting beside brahmin kids and was often invited for meals at his brahmin Teacher's home which he readily accepted...Such was his upbringing, very secular!And we need to learn many lessons from his life!
He worked very hard to earn bread for his family...he even used to sell newspapers.

"Don't stop working hard after your first victory.It is the time more lips are ready to say that your first victory was mere 'luck' " is one among his innumerable quotes.

He even wrote many books like "Wings Of Fire","Ignited Minds", etc proving Benjamins Franklin true for his quote that "If you want to be remembered even after your death write something or do something worth writing" He did both, right!

Former Chairman of my school, M.N Raju was a close friend of APJ {checkout the link www.mnrindia.org }

*Salute*
Adios !
