NMTV Managing Editor Zeba Warsia reports that Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s visit was everything that is often said written and admired about him. Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam – the leader who will always be known as the “President of the Masses” leaves an indelible imprint on minds of the people he comes across. Present to preside over as the Chief Guest of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of SIES, 75 members, patrons and alumni of SIES were honoured at the hands of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam in the presence of Dr. R Chindambaram – Principal Scientific Advisor to the Govt. of India. The prominent names on the list of alumni included Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghosal, Ashiwini Bhave, Shooter Suma Shirur and Dr. P Sekhar – Chairman and Managing Director of Micro Technologies I Ltd. During the event Dr. Kalam, in his trademark style gave an inspiring message to students. In fact, his message during the event mostly saw him directly interacting with children. He underlined the importance of knowledge that can make students great people. Making a rather significant point, Dr. Kalam said that besides father and mother, primary school teachers play a very important part in a students’ life. Be courageous and know how to transform dreams into reality, said Dr. Kalam. Dr. Kalam also had a piece of advice on how to become good, incorrupt leaders who succeed with integrity. The Former President said that all leaders should not let problem be their captain, but leaders should captain the problem. And when Dr. Kalam said that India can do it, it inspired and ignited the young minds. Unfortunately, the media was not given an opportunity to interact with the visionary but Dr. A P J Kalam did have one message for his fellow countrymen as India completes 61 year of independence – that was to work with integrity and succeed with integrity. Everyone present during the SIES Platinum Jubilee celebrations experienced how easily the vibrant, unassuming technocrat Dr. Kalam strikes a chord with anyone he comes across with his inimitable style.
