Video: A Tribute to Kalam on His Birthday by the Young Minds of India

APJ Abdul Kalam, an inspiration to millions, left behind a legacy of his ideas. Every kid wants to be another Kalam and make the country proud. Every kid wants to dream big. Here’s a candid and heartwarming video of Kalam and the impact he had on children.

“In a decade’s time, I have met about 12 million youth like these boys and girls. One thing I realized – children are a very big force. The ignited mind of youth is the most powerful resource on earth, above the earth and under the earth,” said beloved Late President APJ Abdul Kalam.



His love for children was evident and he inspired each one to follow his or her passion. Although he breathed his last in July this year, he is alive in the hearts and minds of millions of children and adults in our country.

“He wanted all children to be educated and achieve their goals. I cannot be like him but I will try.”
