Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam was the 11th president of India, who touched the hearts of millions of people and he was known as the People's president. He is also a respected scientist and engineer. He is also known as the Missile man of India. He passed through extreme hardship and innumerable sacrifices. Kalam's father was not educated, but he wanted to study and grow. He gets up early in the morning around 4 a.m. and goes to his mathematics class. After that class, Kalam, along with his cousin Samsudin goes on distributing the newspaper around their town. Kerosene lamps were lit at home between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m because the town had no electricity. Kaalam had the support of school teachers because he was a bright student. He was exposed to a religious and practical way of looking and evaluating the world.

The flight of birds had fascinated him when he was a boy, but he realized his wish of flying aircraft very later. He took Physics in his college but was dissatisfied. At Madras Institute of Technology, Kalam studied Aeronautics. From there, he learned the value of time. He speaks about his terrible experience which once he encountered, his professor asked him to complete a project within the next few days, he worked without food and sleep and met his deadline. His professor was impressed, he was putting him under stress and asked him to meet a difficult deadline and he won. Kalam has a unique capability of being a boss at all his projects. But his first major project SLV 3 failed and, he was heartbroken. His childhood mentor Jalaluddin also died at that time. But he never thought of quitting and he launched SLV 3 again and it was a success. Ge also learned to deal with professional jealousy and to manage uncooperative team members. He can take up any role. He also told that sharing success can happen only while you take up the responsibility. We should find out the power hidden in us. During one of his test flights, a plane crashed which killed 8 men in the crew, and he was again heartbroken and he took all the responsibility.

Kalam's Agni, Akash missiles were a huge success. He was awarded Padma Bhushan and Bharat Ratna. He was one of the few presidents who touched the hearts of many poor children. It is because he came from a poor background and he supports the power of education in changing once the future.
