History maker, Kalam.
President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam the Hero of our nation (India). The person who work hard to fulfill his dreams and encourage every one to dream to achieve their goal.
Recently Kalam dreams are coming true. When he visits Cheiachin last year, he becomes the first president in the world to visit the World’s Highest War place (Cheiachin). On February 13 this year he make a history by traveling in a most advanced Indian Navy Submarine, (the submarine which equipped with ballistic missiles that can be launched form under water) which went 40 meters below the sea. He was the first president to travel in a Submarine.
His another dream has come true yesterday by flying in Sukhoi – 30 Fighter Plane. In his 74th age he has make history by flying in a Fighter Plane, which can go faster than the sound. Kalam was the first President to fly in a Fighter Plane. The jet went to a height of 25,000 feet, above 7 km and kalam was also allowed to turn the Plane to the left and then to the right when he had the controls, the flying continue for 30 minutes. It was Kalam’s dream since 1958, when he became an engineer, to fly in a fighter aircraft.
History continues in the Parliament Ammendment Bill (Prevention of Disqualification), which exempted the post held by some MP’s including congress president, Sonia Gandhi and Speaker Somnath Chatterjee. This controversy happened when Kalam referred the complaint against the MP and actress-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan to the election commission for holding two posts. The President's secretariat checked if there had been an effort by the government to consult all stakeholders before bringing the amendment to the bill. He concluded that the application of the law with a retrospective clause would save a few individuals from disqualification, but it stank to high heaven. Kalam felt there was no public good in giving this retrospective exemption. Kalam felt there was misuse of the exemption. Ten days after receiving the legislative proposal, Kalam read the voluminous file once again. He also read the secret files in the Rashtrapati Bhavan, on the bills rejected by his predecessors. He was convinced that the bill would be against the spirit of the Constitution, so he sent it back unsigned. This is the first time in the History a President sent the Bill with our signing.
