The Kalam Effect

30 Oct




In this book,the author describes his experience with ‘Kalam Sir’ that he had during his time. He describes the humbleness and great qualities of A.P.J.Abdul Kalam that he recognised while working for him.
A.P.J.Abdul Kalam was known as the "people’s president", and the
correct reason behind this has been penned down in the book.He was the man who worshipped and believed in God a lot. He had such a strong  belief in n god that,I think, he could communicate with him.
For, once, there was a programme in the Rashtrapati Bhawan,that was to be  visited by  a great mass of people,approximately,2000-3000. That  day,the rain started pouring in the morning. The author i.e; the secretary started to panic for how the programme would be held. He talked to Kalam , but he, in response, teasing him, told not to  worry. If it is raining out,we can keep the programme inside. P.M.Nair  went hysterical and told that the Bhawan could hold only 700-800  people. To this, the reply came from the President in a rather cool and calm  way. He smiled and pointed towards the sky through  the window and said "I  have spoken there. Do not worry" And believe it or not, at 5 o’clock the  programme was to be started and the rain had stopped at 4:30 pm!!!  And, as if it was not amply surprising to digest,the rain had started  after the programme.

Well, this is only one of the incidents written in the book.This book
tells a great lot deal about him.I loved this book and would like to
recommend it to all.
