This year, the UNO’s theme is- ‘Learning for people, planet, prosperity, and peace’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, and other eminent personalities wished him on his birth anniversary. Modi tweeted, “Tributes to Dr. Kalam on his Jayanti. India can never forget his indelible contribution towards national development, be it as a scientist and as the President of India. His life journey gives strength to millions.” A renowned scientist, Kalam is known for his missile defence programme, and earned the title ‘Missile Man of India’ for his role in the Pokhran-II nuclear tests in 1998. In 2005, Kalam visited Switzerland, after which the country declared May 26 to be observed as ‘Science Day’ as a mark of respect and in honour of his visit. The long list of awards conferred to Kalam includes the Padma Bhushan in 1981 and Padma Vibhushan in 1990. He was later awarded Bharat Ratna for his contributions to research in the field of science.
