Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam be conferred as Goodwill Ambassador of India

Thursday, October 16, 2008

I am an ardent admirer of the former President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam who celebrated his 77th Birthday today [15 October, 2008]. On this occassion I would like to recall my online experience with him. I have sent an eMail to invite him to be the Chief Guest of Rotary Club Career Event [21 September, 2008 ] intended for HR aspirants in Hyderabad in India. Though he could not attend this event, what surprised me and delighted was his quick acknowledgement and reply expressing his inability to attend due to his pre-occupations. Great and busy people must emulate this quality.
I suggest you to view and listen APJ Abdul Kalam's birthday message and interview on this occasion who spoke on "Challenges before India"

I have just read and signed the online petition "Dr.Kalam - Can be Goodwill Ambassador to Govt of India/United Nations" hosted on the web by, which provides free online hosting of public petitions for responsible public advocacy.
