 Abul pakir jainul abedeen abdul kalam, betterknown as a.p.j abdul kalam, who was the 11th president of india, was born on 15th October,1931 in a poor tamil muslim family in rameswaram. From teen age he had to fight with povertyfor his family and his own education. His career life started by selling newspaper. He was admitted in tiruchiraplly sent josefcollege and also was graduated from there. He was very heedful in studies from childhoodbut after graduation he lost interest in physics and he deeply regreted for it for the next4 years. After this listening to his inner voice hedecided to do engineering course. In 1995 his name appeared in the merit listof madras institute of technology but the fees for admission was one thousand rupees. Then he had not that much money. 

But his mother and sister arranged that moneyby selling their gold jewellery and apj abdul kalam was admitted in engineering. His interest in studies increased after seeingthe faith of his family members in his studies. After noticing his deep interest in some projectsin college, a professor gave him the responsibility for a senior class project. But after noticing no progress in that workhis professor told him "complete it within 3 days or your scholarship will be taken back". At last kalam successfully finished that projectand also made his professor happy. After this a new chapter started in his life. He got chances to work in air force and asa directorate of technical development production in defence. He decided to try for boths. He got interview calls from dehradun for airforce and form Delhi for defence. After staying in Delhi for 1 week he gaveinterview for defence and then he came to dehradun for air force interview. There he stood 9th out of 25 people. But first 8 candidates were selected. And so he lost his opportunity to become afighter pilot. 

He became so depressed as he was unable tomake his dream come true. After this he went to hrishikesh and therehe met with swami shivananda and expressed to him about his dreams, wishes, depression,and grief. After listening everything swamiji told him,"Desire, when it stems from the heart and spirit, when it is pure and intense, possessesawesome electromagnetic energy. This energy is released into the ether eachnight, as the mind falls into the sleep state. Each morning it returns to the conscious statereinforced with the cosmic currents. That which has been imaged will surely andcertainly be manifested". After this he went to delhi and started towork as a senior scientist in Indian defence Ministry. Then he was transferred to indian space researchorganisation ISRO in 1969 and started to work as the head of the project of making a satellitenamed slv iii. But in 1979 when the slv iii was sent to space,it crashed just after 317 seconds. And for that abdul kalam had to face a criticaltime. He was very depressed then and became veryweak mentally. 

After this in a press conference when abdulkalam was asked about the failure of the satellite mission, professor satis dhawan took the microphonefrom him and answered all the questions from the media. In later years when kalam was preparing toconstruct a new satellite, a lot of people were making him remember about the failureof the slv iii. But he kept Faith in himself and focused onlyon his own work. On 18th july 1980 rohini satellite was launchedand it became successful to reach the orbit. It took kalam to the peak of success. He wanted to work in many projects after thisbut those were rejected by the cabinet. 

In 1998 he did some successful research inatomic science. At that time, president atol bihari vajpaiwanted to give him his Ministerial post but kalam rejected that. But in future he was honoured by becomingthe 11th president of india. As a president he was honoured as well ascriticised. He first advised to ban iftar party in rastrapatibhaban. Later when the reason became claer it wasthat approximately 22lakh rupees have been spent for the Iftar party every year in RastrapatiBhawan. So he ordered the money should be sent forthe welfare of orphanages to bought them food dress and blankets. He also used to donate to orphanages fromhis own savings. 

In 2007 he left the presidentship with honour. On 27th july,2015 during giving a speech iniim shilong on "creating a liveable planet earth" he passed away due to massive cardiacarrest. According to reports, his last words toldto his assistant srijan pal singh were "funny guy! Are you doing well?".
