27th July 2015, will now be remembered as one of the most saddest day in Indian history; We have lost our ”Missile Man” – A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, The Priceless Jewel Of India, our 11th President and one of the most influential personality. He was also a great scientist, who was closely involved in India’s civilian space program and military missile development efforts. He became famous as the Missile Man of India for his work on the development of ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology.
I am sure, all of us would agree, despite of his achievements, profession, background or political tie, he was indeed always “The Man Of The People”. He was a highly influential professor and author, who gave all of his life dedicated to public service. All of his speech were extremely motivating, where he always spoke about believing and chasing the dreams, no matter whatever it takes. The most surprising thing is, just couple of minutes before he got the cardiac arrest, he was doing what he believed and loved the most – delivering a lecture on “Creating a Livable Planet Earth.” at the Indian Institute of Management Shillong.
Here are few of his most popular influential quotes, that will help you strongly believe in yourself, your dreams and will always motivate you in your life.
