Born to fly, born to discover

He was a science and students’ lover.
My admirations are still very small
But his discoveries were a boon for all.

Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam
Who is popularly known as ‘Missile Man’ of India
His passion for flying aroused by a bird
made him design a marvelous rocket
we’ve ever heard.

Born in Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu state,
Most of his childhood was a gloomy fate.
Playing on the beach with wavy hair and
dreamy eyes,
Like the beauties of sky he was born to fly.

India’s first rocket ‘Rohini’ was successfully sent
Into the orbit; no one would’ve ever dreamt-
In Kalam’s childhood that he will be remembered till posterity,
We owe him a lot, and are proud to the brim for his mission- “dreams to reality”.
