Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Remembrance


Former President and Bharat Ratna awardee Dr APJ Abdul Kalam was a force to reckon with. On his sixth death anniversary, staff and students of NPSI Chennai remembered his life, his achievements and the values he stood for.

A video presentation was shared by the teachers across grades which offered a brief history of Dr Kalam. Born in Rameshwaram and raised in Madras, he worked with organisations like DRDO and ISRO. His work as an aerospace scientist earned him the sobriquet ‘Missile Man’.

The video included an excerpt from his last speech which had several motivating words. A prolific poet, sensitive human being and a patriot, students were exposed to the many faces of this former president.

The session ended on an interactive note with students posing questions and sharing information about this great leader.
