Dr. Kalam – A Mahatma

‘We are all born with a divine fire in us. 

Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness.’

 – Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
Like every Indian, I have been inspired by Dr. Kalam’s words and actions. It was very hard yesterday (27th July) to hear the news of the great man’s death. The day (28th July)  has been a busy one with offline works as there was a day-long power cut. Whole day, I kept thinking of what I could write about Dr. Kalam, a man of actions. Actions can only be the real tribute to him. Finally, I remembered this dearest book of mine in which I note down inspiring lines from the books I read. ‘Ignited Minds’ by Dr. Kalam (book borrowed from my sister’s father-in-law) has been a source of inspiration since I read it. Some of the motivating pages from ‘Ignited Minds’… Let us sweat for India, let us sweat to fulfill the dreams of the visionary as a tribute to him…
