A Tribute to a True Visionary

Created on: Tuesday, October 13, 2015

“If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means 'First Attempt In Learning'. End is not the end. In fact, E.N.D. means 'Effort Never Dies'. If you get no as an answer, remember N.O. means 'Next Opportunity'.” - President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

I was deeply saddened when I received news of former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s passing earlier this summer. He was an inspiration for me and many other young Indians due to his pioneering in space science, aeronautical engineering, and nuclear missile technology. A little known fact about Kalam’s legacy was his fight against blindness, this is something that resonates especially closely with me.

Please read my tribute to A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, I have shared on The Week.
