APJ Abdul Kalam Birthday: Abdul Kalam’s full name was ‘Dr. Abul Paki’s Zainullabaddin Abdul Kalam’. He was born on 15 October 1931 in Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu
APJ Abdul Kalam Birthday: Abdul Kalam’s full name was ‘Dr. Abul Paki’s Zainullabaddin Abdul Kalam’. He was born on 15 October 1931 in Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu, a small island-like town full of natural beauty. Perhaps that is why Abdul Kalam ji was very connected with nature. Due to the proximity of the sea, the natural beauty of Rameshwaram has always been very beautiful. His father ‘Zainulbadin’ was not educated or rich. They were sailors, and were very firm in the rules. His father used to rent a boat for fishermen. His relations with the Hindu leaders and teachers of Rameshwaram were very affectionate. Abdul Kalam also distributed newspapers to continue his primary education.
Abdul Kalam was from a joint family
Abdul Kalam lived in a joint family. The number of family members suggests that he himself had five brothers and five sisters and was in a family of three. They said they were accustomed to seeing three swings in the house (in which children are kept and kept asleep). The whole family was raised by his grandmother and mother. The home atmosphere is inhabited by both happiness and suffering. There were a lot of people in his house and his mother used to cook a lot of people because the three families of the house as well as the people outside ate with us. In addition to the difficulties, there was happiness in his home.
Abdul Kalam is the man of the missile
Kalam, a scientist and engineer who supplied fire missiles to India, served as the country’s eleventh president from 2002 to 2007. APJ, known as ‘Missile Man’, has decided to award Bharat Ratna to Abdul Kalam. Earlier, in 1952, no scientist other than CV Raman was considered eligible for the award. On March 1, 1998, Kalam panicked at the Bharat Ratna awards ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and was seen repeatedly touching his blue stripe. Kalam was annoyed at formal occasions where he had to wear clothes where he had never felt comfortable. She never liked wearing a suit. Even he always prefers to wear sports shoes instead of leather shoes. After honoring Bharat Ratna, Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the first to congratulate him.
Vajpayee chose Kalam for the presidency
June 10, 2002 APJ Abdul Kalam Anna University Vice Chancellor. Received a message from Kalanidhi that the Prime Minister’s Office was trying to contact him. So, you should go to the Chancellor’s office immediately so that you can talk to the Prime Minister. As soon as he joined the PM’s office, Vajpayee got on the phone and said, “Mr. Kalam, the country needs you as President.” Kalam thanked Vajpayee and said that I need one hour to consider this offer. Vajpayee said that you must take time. But I want a yes from you, no. In the evening, NDA convener George Fernandes, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Promod Mahajan, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati announced Kalam’s candidature at a joint press conference. When Dr. Kalam arrived in Delhi, he was received at the airport by Defense Minister George Fernandes.
Kalam also paid the family to stay at the Presidential Palace
Dr. Kalam loved his elder brother APJ Muthu Maraikayar. But he never asked her to stay with him at the Presidential Palace. When Kalam was the President of India, his brother’s grandson Golam Moinuddin was working in Delhi. However, he still lived in a rented house in Munirkar. In May 2006, Kalam invited about 52 members of his family to Delhi. These people stayed at the Presidential Palace for eight days.
Prime Minister Nair, who was Kalam’s secretary, told me that Kalam had paid out of his own pocket to stay at the Presidential Palace. Even a cup of chao was maintained. They also went to Ajmer Sharif by bus, which was rented by Kalam. After his departure, Kalam deducted a check for Rs 300,000 from his account and sent it to the Rashtrapati Bhavan office.
Kalam was probably the first non-political president of India. If his opponent could be appointed, he was Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. However, Radhakrishnan was not completely apolitical and was also India’s ambassador to the Soviet Union. Kalam’s political inexperience was revealed when he approved the implementation of the President’s rule in Bihar at midnight on May 22, even during his visit to Russia. In the absence of a party majority in the Bihar Assembly elections, Governor Buta Singh recommended the imposition of presidential rule in Bihar without exploring all options. After a meeting, the Union Cabinet immediately faxed him to Moscow for the President’s signature. Kalam unhesitatingly signed the recommendation at around 1.30 pm.
