Speech for Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam for College students in 1000 Words
Good afternoon to all,
Today, on this day of 15th October 2019, I would like to tell you something about a great person in our country. Those we know by many names like – “people’s president”, “Missile Men”. Yes, you are Right, Dr. Abdul Pakir Zainul Abedin Abdul Kalam i.e. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam was born on 15 October 1931 in Dhanushkodi village of Rameshwar district in Tamil Nadu. His family was very poor, sometimes he did not have enough money to buy food 2 times.
He was very intelligent since childhood and was very fond of reading. But due to the lack of economic status of his family, Dr. Abdul Kalam used to sell newspapers to collect money for school fees. After completing primary school, Dr. Abdul Kalam had to go to Ramanathapuram to study higher secondary.
Dr. Abdul Kalam passed the Higher Secondary examination in first-class from the Squirtz Missionary Higher Secondary School. But the studies up to higher secondary were done, but their family members did not have enough money to give him for further studies. Kalam’s grandfather, who was called Kalam ‘Abbu’, came up with an idea.
They took out the wood lying in the house and built a small boat from them. He started renting this boat and with the fare charged from it, the expenses of Abdul Kalam’s further studies started to be fulfilled. fees begin to accumulate for studies after higher secondary and Abdul Kalam went to St. Joseph’s College, Tiruchirappalli for further studies.
In the holidays, Kalam used to go to his home like other students and during these holidays he used to share his father’s work. Dr. Abdul Kalam had the same dream since childhood that he would one day become a pilot and measure the infinite heights of the sky.
To fulfill his dream, he sold the newspaper, continued his studies and eventually battled financially and after completing higher education, he appeared for the pilot’s recruitment exam. Even after passing the examination, he could not be selected, because only eight pilots were to be selected by that examination and he was ranked ninth in the list of successful candidates.
He was very disappointed by this incident, but he did not give up. Dr. Abdul Kalam graduated from the Madras Institute of Technology in 1950 in astronomy. His career starts from here, there was a good demand for scientists outside India at that time, but Dr. Abdul Kalam decided that he would not earn money by going abroad, but would stay in his country and serve the country.
He entered the Indian Defense Research and Development Institute to work on the Hovercraft project. In 1962 he came to ISRO where he successfully played his role in several satellite launch projects. When dr. Abdul Kalam started working for ISRO, then ISRO lacked resources and Dr. Abdul Kalam used to carry goods from ISRO on a bicycle.
Dr. Abdul Kalam visited the US space organization NASA during the year 1963-64. Dr. Due to Abdul Kalam’s remarkable contribution in the field of research and development, he eventually became the Chief Scientific Adviser to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He received the title of Missile Man of India due to the development of launch vehicles and ballistic missile technology.
As a national advisor, he played a major role in Pokhran II in the world-famous nuclear tests. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan Award in 1981, the Padma Vibhushan in the year 1909 and the highest civilian award of India ‘Bharat Ratna’ in the year 1997 for modernizing India’s defence technology and his remarkable contribution.
Politics never wooed Dr. Abdul Kalam in 2002, the ruling party of India, BJP (NDA), requested him to nominate himself for the presidency. With the support of BJP, Dr. Abdul Kalam won the election and became the 11th President of India. He never boasted of his rank and fame and he also maintained very good relations with the common people, hence he is also called “People’s President” i.e. ‘President of the people’.
Dr. Abdul Kalam left the presidency after serving for one term. He later became a principal at Anna University and was teaching aerospace engineering. He was also a visiting professor and used to inspire young students by visiting various institutions. Dr. Abdul Kalam was a Muslim, yet he incorporated himself into the wider culture of India.
In his spare time, he listened to Indian classical music and studied Bhagavad Gita, the holiest book in Hinduism. He was a great man and was also a good writer, he wrote several books including his autobiography “Wings of Fire” in 1999, which is an inspiration for the youth of India. I remember was saying 1 sentence in which he said “You can see, God only helps those who work hard.
This principle is very clear”In the last moments of his life, he was addressing the students, on July 26, 2015, while addressing the students at IIM Shillong, he died of a heart attack. For us, it was an irreparable loss.
Seeing his immense love and affection towards the students, the United Nations has decided to make his birthday as a student’s day. It is a matter of pride for India to have a great personality like Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. Due to the great thinking and unique work of Missile Man, India has become a nuclear and powerful nation today.
Thank you so much for giving me this wonderful opportunity for addressing you all.
