Source of info: Vigyan Prasar

Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam,
popularly known as Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam,
the son of a little educated boat-owner in
Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, has become the
11th President of the Republic of India. The
names of the earlier Presidents of India are:
Dr. Rajendra Prasad, S. Radhakrishnan,
Zakeer Hussain, Fakuruddin Ali Ahmed, V. V.
Giri, Neelam Sanjeev Reddy, Gyani Zail Singh,
R. Venkataraman, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma
and K. R. Narayanan. Some of our Presidents
rose even from much humbler beginning
than Dr. Kalam. It is very significant that he is
the first scientist to occupy the Rashtrapati
Bhavan. He is a man one, who has taken
unto himself, the task of changing the destiny
of India. He is a man with a vision.
His vision is to make India a developed
country. He has given his plan of action and a
road map for realizing his vision. He has
articulated his thoughts in his three books:
India 2020: A Vision for the New Millennium,
Wings of Fire: An Autobiography of A. P. J.
Abdul Kalam and Ignited Minds: Unleashing
the Power Within India. India has already
started looking to Dr. Kalam for inspiration
and guidance.
Dr. Kalam was born on October 15, 1931. He
had a secured childhood both materially and
emotionally. To quote from his
autobiography Wings of Fire: “I was born into
a middle-class Tamil family in the island town
of Rameswaram in Madras state. My father,
Jainulabdeen, possessed neither much formal
education nor much wealth; despite these
disadvantages, he possessed great innate
wisdom and a true generosity of spirit. He
had an ideal helpmate in my mother,
Ashiamma. I do not recall the exact number
of people she fed everyday, but I am quite
certain that far more outsiders ate with us
than all the members of our own family…We
lived in our ancestral house, which was built
in the middle of the 19th century. It was a
fairly large pucca house, made of limestone
and brick, on the Mosque Street of
Rameswaram. My austere...
