Celebrate APJ Abdul Kalam's birthday as "World Students' Day"
The sudden demise of former president and a great scientist, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam has left India in the grip of sadness. Dr. Kalam was an inspirational engineer, professional, scientist, government employee, technocrat, policymaker, professor, teacher, author, visionary, missile-man, people's president, simple-living, high-thinking saintly man and above all, he was most motivating personality of present times for the students and young generation.

That's why probably, even in his last moments, the legend was with students, as he had been all his life. 

In Urdu, "Kalam" means "Talking Meaningful" and he always talked meaningful and hence, even Google search gives one suggestion as "Kalam quotes". 

In short, the great Dr Kalam will be known as "the only person in history, who talked non-controversial and meaningful things, addressing mostly to students". The great Dr Kalam was all about knowledge, learning and teaching.

His life's most important message may be summed up in this quote: "A person may not be in one Profession all his life but all the people of this world can be students all their lifetime". Hence, his Birthday will be most suitable to be celebrated as "World Students' Day".
