The Biography of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam is the life sketch of the great son of India who was a career scientist turned statesman. He was a great patriot and visionary. He was a down-to-earth man and deeply religious at heart with an open mind.
He was intimately involved in India’s civilian space programme and military missile development efforts. He thus came to be known as the ‘Missile Man of India’ for his work on the development of ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology. He also played a pivotal role in India’s Pokharan-II nuclear tests in 1998, the first since the original nuclear test by India in 1974.
Such was his charm that he was almost unanimously elected the 11th President of India in 2002 and was lovingly called the People’s President. After completing his term as President he returned to his civilian life of education, writing and public service.
The inside pages contain an inspiring account of his life - how a humble boy of a poor boat owner rose to become a great scientist and ultimately the most admired President of India.
