APJ Abdul Kalam Birthday: October 15 is recorded in history as the birthday of India’s Missileman and former President APJ Abdul Kalam. APJ Abdul Kalam is credited with enriching India with nuclear energy. APJ Abdul Kalam showed in 1996 that the whole world, including the United States, knew that India was now a nuclear power.
APJ Abdul Kalam was born on 15th October 19 Ans1 in Dhanushkodi village, Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu to a Muslim Ansar family. You loved the kids and the students and inspired them to dream big. APJ Abdul Kalam was giving a speech to a student in Shillong in 2015. At the same time he suffered a heart attack. After which he was taken to the hospital. However, they could not be saved. APJ Abdul Kalam, the 11th President and the country’s greatest scientist, died on July 27, 2015 in Shillong.
APJ Abdul Kalam ‘Pokhran did something special during exams’
Let us tell you that May 11, 1999 was a day when the whole world became aware that India was also given nuclear power. On 11 May 1998, a successful nuclear test was conducted in India at Pokhran in Rajasthan. The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and former President APJ Abdul Kalam were also present. The great scientist APJ Abdul Kalam did something on this occasion without which this nuclear test would not have been possible at all.
America did not allow Inking
Twenty-two years have passed since the nuclear test, but the CIA was equipped with such technology. The US agency could release the news of India’s nuclear test to the world at any moment. The great scientist Abdul Kalam was present in Army uniform at the time of this nuclear test and it was because of his tactics that India kept the United States in the dark about this test at that time. I remember at that time APJ Abdul Kalam was the head of DRDO. India was aware that the CIA supported Pakistan. That is why India did not want to let the US or the CIA know about the nuclear test. The CIA suspected that the Indian government could conduct another nuclear test after 1974. Thus, the United States was closely monitoring every step taken by U.S. nuclear scientists. Let me tell you that Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Gawhar Ayub Khan appealed to India at the international level to stop him from fulfilling his nuclear ambitions. Pakistan wanted it because then-Army General VP Malik said India should test its nuclear weapons. Pakistan lost courage and the CIA was on high alert.
The army helped make the test a success
India enlisted the help of the Indian Army to make the nuclear test a success. I tell you that the 58th Engineering Regiment of the Indian Army was part of this test. To fool the CIA, trucks and other goods were transported as if they were being carried on ordinary days.
The whole mission was thus successful
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was given a pseudonym and Colonel Prithviraj was succeeded by Abdul Kalam. Also, he never visited the test site in groups. He always traveled alone so that no one could get his clue. Army uniforms made his job easier. CIA spies thought they were all ordinary army officers. They have nothing to do with nuclear scientists. The whole plan was put together by APJ Abdul Kalam with Army Colonel Gopal Kaushik. The whole plan was implemented on the night of May 10, 1998. It was named Operation Power. During Operation Shakti, there were a lot of codes like White House, Taj Mahal and Kumbhakaran. Scientists from DRDO, MDER and BARC were assisting in important tasks like explosions. The media was kept away from it. At three in the morning, the atomic bomb was transferred by four trucks of the Indian Army. Colonel Umang Kapoor was commanding these trucks of the Indian Army. After all this, India detonated three bombs and the world was shocked. This test of India was strongly condemned by many countries. America, China, Canada and Japan topped the list. At this time these countries also imposed sanctions on India. India, on the other hand, has not been condemned by Russia, the United Kingdom and France.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee announced
Subsequently, the then Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee announced that India had successfully conducted a nuclear test. He said that India is also now equipped with nuclear energy. Atal Bihari Vajpayee said that now we also have the capability of big bombs. At the same time he said that our bombs will never be a weapon of aggression.
