    Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam (/ˈɑːbdəl kəˈlɑːm/ (listen); 15 October 1931 – 27 July 2015) was an Indian aerospace scientist and statesman who served as the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007. He was born and raised in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu and studied physics and aerospace engineering. He spent the next four decades as a scientist and science administrator, mainly at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and was intimately involved in India's civilian space programme and military missile development efforts.[1] He thus came to be known as the for his work on the development of ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology.[2][3][4] He also played a pivotal organisational, technical, and political role in India's nuclear tests in 1998, the first since the original nuclear test by India in 1974.[5]

    Kalam was elected as the 11th president of India in 2002 with the support of both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the then-opposition Indian National Congress. Widely referred to as the "People's President",[6] he returned to his civilian life of education, writing and public service after a single term. He was a recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.

    While delivering a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management Shillong, Kalam collapsed and died from an apparent cardiac arrest on 27 July 2015, aged 83.[7] Thousands, including national-level dignitaries, attended the funeral ceremony held in his hometown of Rameswaram, where he was buried with full state honours.[8]

    Early life and education

    Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam was born on 15 October 1931, to a Tamil Muslim family in the pilgrimage centre of Rameswaram on Pamban Island, then in the Madras Presidency and now in the State of Tamil Nadu. His father Jainulabdeen Marakayar was a boat owner and imam of a local mosque;[9] his mother Ashiamma was a housewife.[10][11][12][13] His father owned a ferry that took Hindu pilgrims back and forth between Rameswaram and the now uninhabited Dhanushkodi.[14][15] Kalam was the youngest of four brothers and one sister in his family.[16][17][18] His ancestors had been wealthy Marakayar traders and landowners, with numerous properties and large tracts of land. Even though his ancestors had been wealthy Marakayar traders, the family had lost most of its fortunes by the 1920s and was poverty-stricken by the time Kalam was born. Marakayar are a Muslim ethnic found in coastal Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka who claim descendance from Arab traders and local women. Their business had involved trading groceries between the mainland and the island and to and from Sri Lanka, as well as ferrying pilgrims between the mainland and Pamban. As a young boy he had to sell newspapers in order to add to the family's meager income. With the opening of the Pamban Bridge to the mainland in 1914, however, the businesses failed and the family fortune and properties were lost over time, apart from the ancestral home.[19][20][21]

    Goa University Library Information @ your fingertips…! 5 books of A P J Abdul Kalam that will continue to ignite minds

    Posted on July 28, 2015 by Librarian

    India’s Former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam passed away succumbing to a heart attack while giving a lecture at IIM Shillong. Books he wrote were best sellers and a must read for every citizen of India.  (Courtsey : India Today)

    From a boy who belonged to a not-so-rich background to the President of the whole nation, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam has left an indelible image on everyone’s mind and heart. Not just the man behind the technological innovations that upsurged our nation, Kalam penned books that always had a message for our countrymen and addressed each and every burning issue faced by India. Here are five of his books, which should be read by every citizen of our nation:

    Wings of Fire

    One of the things that stand out throughout the book is Kalam’s optimism. This autobiography narrates his story, his incredible journey, from the boy from a humble background who went on to become a chief scientist behind innovations in Indian space research and Indian missile programs, and who later became the president of India. Through Wings of Fire, we also get to know more about many other brilliant people who worked behind Indian space research such as Dr Vikram Sarabhai and Dr Brahm Prakash.

    Ignited Minds

    Ignited Minds was written in 2002. It talks about Dr Kalam’s experience of meeting students from all over the country. It shows how during the interaction with the people from the entire country, he realised the potential of India to be a developed nation. The book ends with a discussion between the two kids in a mother’s womb named ‘ego’ and ‘spirit’, which gives a message that we should look beyond what our eyes can see.

    Indomitable Spirit

    Indomitable Spirit brings together the values, thoughts and ideals of our Former President Kalam. In this book Dr Kalam has showed great respect towards women and said that, “Womanhood is a beautiful creation of God”. Indomitable Spirit gives us a detailed picture of his journey from the shores of Rameswaram to the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

    India 2020

    India 2020 is a thought provoking book. Kalam envisions India to attain the status of the fourth developed nation of the world by 2020. In this book, through various statistical proofs, Kalam proves that ‘Vision 2020′ is certainly not unattainable. He also illustrates this by giving several examples like the success of the Green Revolution and the development of space technology.

    Turning Points

    Turning Points is a sequel to Wings of Fire, which dealt with his life up to 1992. This book shows his journey as a President and what happened during his presidency. The book is more like a blueprint of Vision 2020. In this book, he stressed on the fact that India must embrace technology in order to move forward. He has also explained how with the use of e-governance, many modern day problems in India can be solved.
