While the research agencies in the developed world moves past their space-shuttle across the planet! Pluto, we here in India not far behind to try such a mission. Thanks to great Indian scientists, who though are less experienced young-breed in terms of learning what is called modern science, but are doing impressive work in catching up with others in science research. We lost one such scientist, the great Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam on the day of 27th July 2015. He drives the passion of innovation in the large Indian population from young to old. While he was on-job of igniting such fire of passion at the age of 83 lefts us after fixing wings of innovation to many Indians.
Dr APJ Abdul Kalam is not only a scientist par excellence and also simple humble human being of that scale. Let his writings and speeches continue to inspire younger generation that India is capable of doing world class things for the betterment of the society.
Another unique notable service he has done to the nation is, he has told not to declare holiday, the day after his death. The great tribute to him can be India becoming a poverty-free science-focused nation by 2022, if not by 2020.
