A.P.J. Abdul Kalam served as the 11th president of India. By the time his term ended 4 years ago, he had become known as the "People's President." Before he entered politics, the aeronautical engineer worked extensively with the Indian Space Research Organization. He now helps inspire future scientists as chancellor of the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology.
Dr. Kalam spoke to a student gathering at the UH Hilton sponsored by various Indian Student Organizations. He talked about a movement he started a few months ago called "What Can I Give". It focuses on teaching people to better the future by giving to others and society.
