The person i admire the most is Dr. APJ. Abdul Kalaam. He was born on 15th October 1931, in a poor muslim family at Rameshwaram. He had three brothers and one sister. At very young age, out of his own will, he worked as a paper boy, to support the financial needs of his family. He completed his schooling and graduation at Trichy. He passed out as an aeronautical engineer from MIT. Even though he couldn’t pursue his dream career of becoming pilot, he went on to design aircrafts. He then joined ISRO and played a vital role in sending many satellites to space. Considering his service he is called the missile man of India. He was elected as 11th president of India. He lived by his words and hence became a great mentor for all the youth.
The man of virtues:
He spent his whole life for the uplifement of the nation. His life is an open book for us to learn a lot of good things. Dr. Abdul Kalaam once said that he loved being a teacher rather than being a scientist or the president. He did his best in every field he pursued. His dedication towards work and his strong will power are the two things that has made him great. He strongly believed that youth are the greatest strength of India. He said every child should dream for the betterment and never should give up at any cost..
Once when Abdul kalaam was asked which of his inventions has made him proud. The answer that he gave is by far the best one ever. The cost effective and weightless plastic, used in making prosthetic limbs for the handicapped kids, was invented by him, which he feels is the best among all his inventions.
Such simple and noble were his thoughts, that he believed youth alone, with their strong determination can remove corruption fully. He loved interacting with students. He passed away while giving lecture to students. He was truly a man of virtues, still inspiring many more lives.
