The missile man of India, Dr. APJ Kalam, made an impact on both science and politics. He served as India’s 11th president. He is also known as the president of the people. He was born on October 15th, 1931, and is from the little city of Rameswaram in the state of Tamil Nadu. His journey from a lowly upbringing to Rashtrapati Bhavan demonstrates his unwavering spirit, tenacity, and commitment to his work.
Through his career as an aeronautical scientist with the DRDO and afterwards ISRO, Kalam made numerous important contributions to India’s space exploration.
He was giving a lecture at IIM Shillong on July 27, 2015, when he suddenly suffered a heart attack and passed on that day. He will always be in our hearts, and students and citizens all throughout India continue to draw inspiration from him.
