APJ Abdul Kalam Quotes: Former president of India, Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam has been an inspiration to many. Born on October 15 in Tamil Nadu, Kalam studied aerospace engineering and worked as a scientist. Owing to his contribution in the development of ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology, he was widely known as the ‘Missile Man of India’.
Apart from science, his interest in philosophy, languages and literature saw the former president leave his imprint in them. He received doctorates from universities all around the world and was also a connoisseur of music. He was a prolific writer and wrote 18 books, 22 poems and 4 songs during his lifetime.
In July 2015, while delivering a lecture, he collapsed and passed away on July 27. However, he has left behind a legacy and his words, in spite of the passage of time, have not lost their relevance. They continue to inspire and motivate.
