Do you love Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam? Yes Of course! For many Indians he is a source of inspiration, who proved that education can take anyone to greater heights if they commit themselves to their ambition and put strenuous efforts towards it.

Pankaj Haramwar, an Engineering Student (Jawaharlal Darda College of Engineering and Technology, Yavatmal, India) along with Samarendra Patra, a final year Engineering Student (SRM University) conveyed their respect and love with the former President of India by their initiative “Postcards to Kalam“. Samarendra is Limca Book of Records Holder in literature who wrote more than 350 Poems in Oriya, Hindi and English.

They both have initiated this project way back in 2013 to convey how the veteran scientist has inspired them as well the young students like them. They managed to collect around 450+ Letters and Poems from students, complied it as a book and presented it to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam on 13th March 2014

The Hon’ble former President of India appreciated the endeavor taken by them. However, he felt that such a project needn’t be taken on his name. He stressed them to think about the development of India and asked them to work hard in their chosen field of academics. That showed his determinacy on India’s future via students and their ambitions. 

However, this is such an effort by Pankaj and Samarendra will imbibe other youth as well to get themselves move in the positive direction by taking a role model like Dr. Kalam.

We. Propel Steps convey our hearty congratulations to the duo on this special occasion and wish them reach greater heights as they aspire.
