short biography of apj abdul kalam in english | short essay on Dr APJ Abdul Kalam ji ( 270 words)
AvulPakirJainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, also known as the missile man of India was born in Tamil Nadu and served as the President of India after his endless contribution to the Defense sector, aerospace engineering developments and science and research fields in India.
His contribution to the development of Ballistic missiles and establishing their indigenous production almost single handedly is what led to him earning the title of Missile Man. His involvement in the scheme of events that led to Pokhran-II and made India into a self-established Nuclear power were truly unimaginable. He hailed from a modest background and had huge affinity towards kids and thus education took huge strides under his term as the president.
His service as the science administrator of DRDO was during a period when it was struggling for existence and his insights took the DRDO to unimaginable heights. Kalam sir had the vision of making India a modern day superpower and despite his long running service to the research and defense sector he was a man of peaceful moral values who believed in absolute non-violence.
After serving the country for majority of his career, Kalam sir spent his last decade and a half conducting speeches and offering insights and lectures at schools, colleges and events and thus motivating more and more people to serve their country in individual and group capacity. He was bestowed with Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan and Bharat ratna for his endless service to the nation. His work “Wings of fire” and many others like India 2020 etc personified and elaborated his vision to take the country to new and unprecedented heights.
