Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam inspiration

-Kyle Rozario 7 D

Avul Pakir Jenulabdeen also known ‘The Missile Man’ was born in a quiet city down south called Rameshwaram where he spent his childhood. Dr APJ Abdul Kalam is truly an inspiration to the young minds of today. He had an unstoppable goal and didn’t hesitate until he achieved it. He did have a very tough journey though he came across many technical hitches during his occupation but with his persevering zeal he overcame each of them and earned honour and respect not only for himself but for his country. Because, no dream is too big and no dreamer too small. He always treated everyone equally. There was once an incident when he was sitting in a car and was escorted by a soldier who was standing throughout the journey. He felt blue when he observed this and so after they reached their destination he called this officer to his office and acknowledged him for guarding him throughout the journey which shows how virtuous he was. Unfortunately this great man is no longer with us as he passed away on 27th of July 2015. But his unending zeal to achieve victory inspires young minds like us even today. In the words of the great APJ Abdul Kalam, “Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck.”
