It revolves around his work with defence and space projects. Defense Research and Development Organization DRDO became his first employers after completing his education as he was given a project on hovercrafts. Here, Kalam has incorporated minutest of scientific acronyms, details etc. Another noticeable thing is his interactions with the common folks in such an organization and outside. His insistence on a participative model of management was based on bringing the best out of every person. It made him a scientist with a soul.
These were people who felt so secure, though they had nothing to fall back upon. They drew sustenance from within. They relied more on the inner signals and less on the external ones; like wealth, prestige, position, promotion, approval of ones lifestyle by others, ceremonial honors and status symbols of all kinds.
One must be aware of the inner signals and trust them. One must also have the focus of control over ones life in ones own hands. If we learn to make decision avoiding external pressures, which will constantly try to manipulate and immobilize us, the better or life will be; the better our society will become. The entire nation will benefit by having strong, inner directed people as their leaders. A citizenry that thinks for itself, a country in which people know and trust themselves as individuals, would be virtually immune to manipulation by any unscrupulous authority or vested interest.
Our willingness to use our own inner resources to invest our life, especially our imagination, will bring us success. When we undertake a task from our own uniquely individual standpoint, we will become a person.
Life is a difficult game which can be won only by retaining our birthright to be a person. To retain this right we must be willing to take the social or external risks involved in ignoring pressures to do things the way others say they should be done. Kalam has always considered the price of perfection prohibitive and allowed mistakes as a part of learning.
He prefers a bit of daring and persistence to perfection. Mistakes for Kalam are lessons that one learns on the way to success. To avoid failures one must anticipate them. Further he says that it is in the handling of the crises that arise as a consequence, that talent can often be revealed. In the novel Kalam gives the gist of a quote be G.
The gist says that all reasonable men adapt themselves to the world.
Only a few unreasonable men persist in trying to adapt the world to themselves. All progress in the world depends on these unreasonable men and their innovative and often non-conformist actions.
For Kalam, a good plan violently executed right now, is far better than a perfect plan executed next week, as said by General George Pattan. Kalam is a man, clothed beautifully in his success.
He is known as the Missile man of india. His success lies not only in the successful Missile and Space Launch Vehicle tests, but in the fact that through his efforts, some superb teams of Scientists and Engineers have been created.
He pins down his achievement as to having created an environment for teams of young people to put their heart and soul into their mission. Total commitment is not just hard work; it is total involvement.
Building a wall is a back breaking work. There are people who build rock walls all their lives. And when they die, there are miles of walls, mute testimonials to how hard their people had worked.
But there are other men who build rock walls, and all the time they are placing one rock on top of another they have a vision in their minds, a goal. The rock wall may enclose an apple orchard or make a boundary. When they finish, they have more than a wall. It is the goal that makes the difference. When Kalam looks back in retrospect on his days as a young scientist, he is aware that one of the most constant and powerful feelings that he experienced was his desire to be more than what he was at that moment.
He had a strong unwillingness to let his mind wallow in pettiness, where it idles. He desired to feel more, learn more, express more. He desired to grow, improve, purify, expand. He never had any outside influence to advance in career, all he had was the inner urge to seek more within himself. The key to his motivation was to look at how far he had to go rather than how far he had come.
It is his belief that through difficulties and problems, God gives the opportunity to grow.
So when our hopes and dreams and goals are dashed, search among the wreckage, we may find a golden opportunity hidden amidst then ruins. Always encouraged to be a Buddha or Gandhi; how and why did India become a missile power is a question that needs to be answered for the coming generation.
For Kalam, two centuries of subjugation, oppression and denial have failed to kill the creativity and capability of Indian people.
It is our bounden duty to guarantee the security and integrity of our nation against this threat of subjugation. Only when we are technologically self reliant will we be able to safeguard our security.
With characteristic modesty, Kalam ascribes the greatness of his achievements to the influence of his teachers and mentors. He describes the struggles of his boyhood and youth, bringing alive everyday life in a small town in South India and the inspirational role of educators. Lakshmana Sastry summoned the teacher, and in our presence, told the teacher that he should not spread the poison of social inequality and communal intolerance in the minds of innocent children".
In , he joined St.
Joseph's College Trichi, to study for the B. Sc degree course when he realized that physics was not his subject.
He or his family could not afford to spend that much of money for the course at MIT. Zohara, his sister stood with him. When he had in a specific branch of aeronautical engineering, the goal was very clear in his mind at that time.
And he tried to communicate with different kinds of people. At MIT, their teachers shaped his thoughts, Prof. Sponder, Prof. Kal Pandalai and Prof. Narasingalu Rao. Each of them had carried distinct personalities.
Last year MIT was a year of transition and had a great impact on his later life. There he worked on engine overhauling as part of a team. He had trained in radial engine-cum- drum operations. But he was not selected in Air Force because he failed to pass the physical fitness standards. He had to create opportunities on his own. At the stage, he covered 32 eventful years of his life when he was just on the threshold of his career after graduation. Creation[ edit ] The section 'Creation' traverses seven chapters, from chapters four to chapter ten; and covers Kalam's life and work for 17 years, from the year until At a NASA facility, he remembers to have seen a painting, prominently displayed in the lobby.
The painting depicted a battle scene with a rocket flying in the background.
On closer examination, he found that the painting depicted Tipu Sultan's army fighting the British. His association with Thumba and Satellite Launch Vehicle and related projects are vividly presented in the section 'Creation'.
During the period covered under 'Creation', Kalam, in the year , lost his father who lived up to years of age. Kalam took the bereavement with courage and remembered these words written on the death of William Butler Yeats by his friend Auden , and his father: Earth receive an honoured guest; William Yeats is laid to rest: In the prison of his days Teach the free man how to praise.
The period covered in the section 'Creation' also brought Kalam national recognition. A pleasant surprise came in the form of conferment of Padma Bhushan on the Republic Day, Propitiation[ edit ] Section Propitiation covers the period to This section covers the scientist's journey towards becoming the "Missile Man of India". In this section, his excellent leadership qualities as taking up the responsibility of shaping up the Guided Missile Development Program, are clearly visible.
In this phase of the life, Kalam was responsible for the development of the five missiles — Prithvi , Trishul , Akash , Nag and Agni. The book has 24 plates with photographs associated with the life and work of Kalam: Ramanathapuram , from where Kalam had completed his high schooling. Plate 8 shows his teachers at Schwartz High School.
