Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a wonderful morning to all of you. Today on this special occasion, I would like to speak some words on the topic- A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam was born in 1931 to a middle-class Tamil family in the island town of Rameswaram in the former state of Madras. He was one of the pioneers of aerospace engineering in India. He worked as a scientist in Indian space programs and was the President of India from 2002 to 2007.
He is often called the Missile Man of India for his ground breaking work on missile technology. Some of the books he has written are India 2020, Ignited Minds and Wings of Fire. He passed away in 2015 to the country’s great lament.
Kalam still continues to be an inspiration to every citizen of India, and we must always remember the contributions of this great man! Thank you for listening to me so attentively.
