A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (Engineer, Scientist, President (india))
15 Oct, 1931 - 27 Jul, 2015

 

 

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is an Indian scientist and politician who served his country as president from 2002 to 2007.

 

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was born in India on October 15, 1931. A lifelong scientist who studied physics and aerospace engineering, Kalam's prominent role in India's 1998 nuclear weapons tests established him as a national hero. Among his many accolades, including honorary doctorates from 40 universities, he was granted the Padma Bhushan (1981), the Padma Vibhushan (1990), and the Bharat Ratna (1997) — India's highest civilian awards — for his contributions in modernizing government defense technology. Known as the People's President, Kalam was so popular that MTV nominated him for a Youth Icon of the Year award in 2003 and 2006.

 

In 2002, India's ruling National Democratic Alliance helped him win election against the country's former president, Kocheril Raman Narayanan; Kalam became India's 11th president, a largely ceremonial post, in July 2002. On July 27, 2015 Kalam suffered from a massive heart attack while lecturing at the Indian Institute of Management and subsequently died at the age of 83.
