On Last day of 2011, I met Dr A P J Abdul Kalam

2011 is coming to an end and 2012 is about to start. Like all new years I was thinking what special thing can I do – usually it means going to “cool” parties & hanging out with my friends. But this year, I didn’t have anything planned as I didn’t want to do anything. As nothing ever goes according to plans; so my “plan” of “no plan” flopped. Instead, on last day 2011 - 31 December, I met A. P. J. Abdul Kalam who was 11th president of india.

Long story short, he came to our college and addressed us, so I saw & hear him speak right in front of me. first thing I noticed he just another human being like us who gets annoyed when his hair get messed & starts combing them right on stage in front of everyone! :P

But there is few things I noticed though observing his actions,body language & works, I want to share

Further, I will share 4 thing that he said are needed if someone wants to achieve success:

  1. Aim High

  2. Do Hard work

  3. Continuously gaining knowledge throughout your life by books or teachers.

  4. Perseverance: Steady persistence in a course of action, apurpose, a state

lastly, I am not too sure about accuracy & there may be errors in my observations, mostly because I little distracted & did lot of bird-watching…lol! But In all seriousness, I do appreciate the work kalam has done & is still doing for the country. He seemed quite patriotic. It was a nice experience to the 11th president of India on last day of 2011!

Hopefully, people will draw inspiration from him/his work & embark on struggle to make India a developed country!

Wish you Happy New Year 2012!
