India Club is delighted to welcome Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the 11th President of India

India Club is privileged to welcome Dr Abdul Kalam, who will give an inspirational talk to members and friends of the India Club, entitled “Igniting the mind of the new India: Harnessing Science to inspire youth”. The 11th President of India is still acknowledged to be the “People’s President", an inspirational figure whose ideas and vision remain a beacon of hope and integrity in India’s public life.

Dr Kalam received the Bharat Ratna in 1997 for his pivotal contributions to India’s scientific and technological establishment, especially the space program. He played a crucial role in leading and organizing the work that went toward the Pokhran II nuclear tests in May 1998, and was Project Director of the teams that created the successful SLV-2 and SLV-3 indigenous satellite programs.

His books, speeches and inspirational example truly made him the People’s President – and Dr. Kalam continues to ignite the minds of India’s youth with his visionary ideas today through a variety of institutions aimed at enhancing the sense of service and patriotism among India’s youth.

Date: Wednesday, September 21, 6.30-8pm (sandwiches, snacks and tea will be served after the talk)
