More From Abdul Kalam
- "Tell me, why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognise our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?"
- "In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime."
- "Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness."
