Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was an ardent Indian. His technological and scientific contributions helped the country to achieve new heights. He believed that a strong India can only exist when its

citizens have the knowledge and capability to stand up against a world, which believed, respected only those who had the strength and the ability to self-rely upon themselves.

Thus, Kalam persistently urged for a generation of Indians who would contribute to their country’s progress through learning and sharing the knowledge they have gained, making India a superpower in its own right and ability. In this regard, some quotes are:

“We will be remembered if we give our younger generation a prosperous and safe India, resulting out of economical prosperity coupled with civilizational heritage”.

“The country doesn’t deserve anything less than success from us. Let us aim for success”.

“Unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength”.
