Renowned for his pivotal role within the nation’s civilian space programme and military missile development, he was called the Missile Man of India. He has made his contributions to the India's Pokhran-II nuclear tests in 1998 which established him as a national hero. An alumnus of the distinguished Madras Institute of Technology, Kalam began his career as a scientist at the Aeronautical Development Establishment of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). He was later transferred to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) where he served because the project director of India's first Satellite Launch Vehicle (SLV-III). He has joined DRDO later and became closely involved in India’s space programme. he served because the Chief Scientific Adviser to the Prime Minister within the 1990s before becoming the President of India in 2002. Immensely popular during his term, he earned the moniker of People's President. Dr. Kalam was honoured with several awards including the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour, for his great contribution to the Nation’s space and nuclear programmes .

early life

Early Life

Dr. Kalam was born in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu on 15 October 1931 into a Muslim family . His father Jainulabudeen was a ship owner while his mother Ashiamma was a housewife. Kalam had four elder siblings.
Even though his ancestors had been wealthy traders, the family had lost most of its fortunes by the 1920s and was poverty-stricken by the time Kalam was born. As a young boy he had to sell newspapers to support his family’s income.

Even though the family wasn't financially well-off, the youngsters were raised in an environment stuffed with love. In one in every of the books which Kalam wrote decades later, he fondly remembered how his mother would lovingly feed her own quota of food to the kids and go hungry herself.

Kalam was an honest student and always curious to find out more about how things happened. When he was ten years old, one in every of his teachers, Siva Subramania Iyer, took the scholars to the seashore and asked them to watch the birds on the wing.
Then the teacher gave the kids a theoretical explanation, which plus the live practical example, cast a deep influence on young Kalam’s mind. That very day the boy realised that his life’s calling had something to try to to with flight.
After completing his studies at Schwartz Higher middle school, he enrolled at Saint Joseph's College, Tiruchirappalli, graduating in science in 1954. Pursuing his childhood dream, he travelled to Madras to review aerospace engineering in Madras Institute of Technology.

During his third year, he was assigned a project to style a low-level airplane along with some other students. The project was a difficult one and on top of it, their guide gave them a really tight deadline. The young men worked hard under immense pressure, and eventually managed to complete target within the deadline. The guide was thoroughly impressed by Kalam’s dedication. At this juncture, Kalam aspired to become a combat pilot. However he couldn't realise this dream.

Kalam as Scientiest & President of India

Kalam As a Scientist

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam earned his degree in 1957 and joined the Aeronautical Development Establishment of the DRDO as a scientist in 1958.

In the early 1960's , he has worked with the Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) under the renowned space scientist Vikram Sarabhai. He also designed alittle hovercraft for DRDO India .

Dr. Kalam visited to NASA's Langley Center in Hampton. He has also visited Virginia; Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland & Wallops Flight Facility in 1963-64.

Inspired by this visit, he began acting on an expandable rocket project independently at DRDO in 1965.

However, he wasn't much satisfied together with his work on DRDO and was happy to be transferred to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in 1969.

Dr. Kalam served as the project director of the SLV-III and successfully designed and indigenously produced India’s first satellite launching vehicle.

In the 1970s, he began making efforts to develop the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). Developed to permit India to launch its Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites into Sun-synchronous orbits, the nation’s PSLV project was an eventual success; it absolutely was first launched on 20 September 1993.

A.P.J. Kalam also directed several other projects, including Project Devil, within the 1970s. Project Devil was an early liquid-fueled missile project aimed toward producing a short-range guided missile. The project wasn't a hit within the long-term and was discontinued within the 1980s. However it led to the later development of the Prithvi missile within the 1980s.
He was also attached the Project Valiant which aimed toward the event of intercontinental missile. like Project Devil, this project too wasn't successful in itself but played a job within the development of the Prithvi missile shortly.

In the early 1980s, the Integrated missile Development Programme (IGMDP), an Indian Ministry of Defence programme managed by the DRDO in partnership with other government organisations was launched. He was requested to rejoin DRDO India as the Chief Executive of the IGMDP in 1983.
The programme, which received tremendous political support, aimed toward the concurrent development of 4 projects: Short range surface-to-surface missile (code-named Prithvi), Short range low-level guided missile (code-named Trishul), Medium range guided missile (code-named Akash) and Third-generation anti-tank missile (code-named Nag).

The IGMDP, under the able leadership of Kalam proved to be a convincing success and produced variety of successful missiles including the primary Prithvi missile in 1988, and therefore the Agni missile in 1989. because of his achievements because the director of the IGMDP, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam earned the nickname of “Missile Man.”
His increasing involvement with governmental agencies led to his appointment because the Scientific Adviser to the Defense Minister in 1992. In 1999, he was appointed because the Principal Scientific Adviser to the govt of India with the rank of cabinet minister.

In the late 1990s, he played a serious role in conducting the Pokhran-II, a series of 5 nuclear bomb test explosions at the Indian Army's Pokhran range in May 1998. Following the success of those tests which elevated Kalam to the status of a national hero, the then-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared India a full-fledged nuclear state.
In addition to being a superb scientist, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was also a visionary. In 1998, he proposed a state plan called Technology Vision 2020 to function an action commit to make India a developed nation by the year 2020. He recommend several suggestions, including nuclear empowerment, technological innovations, and improved agricultural productivity to attain the identical.

In 2002, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) which was in power at the time, expressed its decision to nominate Dr. Kalam for the 13th President of India . Kalam, being a preferred national figure, easily won the presidential election.
