The Missile Man

”A dream is not which you see while you are asleep,it is something that does not let you sleep”said by the man who marked history in 1980 by launching India’s first SLV(satellite launch vehicle) in space.

He headed the entire program from developing the ballistic missile to its operation.Thus,came to be known as the ”Missile Man of India”.

Five years ago if we go back in time ,we’ll find this child of a fisherman,who was youngest among his 5 siblings selling newspaper to help his father to earn money.

He had no tv,only few books & was an average student at school.Never in his wildest dreams he could have thought of being the ”president of India”.His journey began from rameswaram to rashtrapati bhawan. 

So what were the reasons behind his success?The answer is His:-

  • Hardwork
  • Dedication
  • Integrity
  • Humble nature
  • And simple lifestyle

He believed that a person need to face difficulties to enjoy success in of my favourite saying of him was”If you want to shine like a sun,you have to burn like a sun”.He lived a very simplistic life.He gaveaway all his money to a foundation named PURA(providing urban amenities to rural areas).what other example do we need of his nobility.His name was Dr.A.P.J Abdul kalam and he was an inspiration for the whole mankind.
