‘When a problem arises, become the captain of the problem and defeat it!’


LIGHT HAD GONE OUT WHEN MAHATMA GANDHI LEFT BUT INDIA’S HEART AND SOUL LEFT WITH Dr APJ ABDUL KALAM.

A HUMBLE TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT SOUL ON BEHALF OF 130 CRORE INDIANS and MILLIONS LIVING ABROAD
MAN OF VISION & MISSION TO MAKE INDIA SUPER POWER BY 2020 IT IS THE DUTY OF ALL OF US TO FULFILL HIS DREAM . THAT WILL BE THE TRUE HOMAGE WE PAY TO HIM. REGARDS HARIHARAN KRISHNAMURTHY

‘When a problem arises, become the captain of the problem and defeat it!’

APJ Abdul KalamLast updated on: November 06, 2014 21:23 IST

Once, during his Presidency, President A P J Abdul Kalam received a letter from a student shocked with his class 12th mark-sheet.

He had secured 10 per cent in Maths and Physics, whereas throughout his school career, he had always scored 90 per cent and above.

In utter dismay, he wrote to the President of India, asking for his help.

President Kalam referred his case to the authorities and two weeks later got a reply that indeed there was a mistake in the evaluation and a rectification had been done.

In the last 15 years, President Kalam — arguably India’s most popular President and among the founders of the country’s space programme — has interacted with 18 million young Indians, face-to-face, through e-mail and over Facebook.

He receives 300 e-mails everyday.

Some of these letters have been turned into his latest book Forge Your Future, which provides an insight into the issues which concern and engage the minds of young Indians today. President Kalam’s replies are based on his personal experiences, his reading and his interactions with political and spiritual leaders.

The title of the book was selected after an online public vote.

In his quiet bungalow in Lutyens’ Delhi, President Kalam speaks to Archana Masih/Rediff.com about India becoming a developed country by 2020-2022, the heroes he admires, how 90 per cent of India’s space programme is intended for the people and the individual’s potential to become unique.

Photographs: Rajesh Karkera/Rediff.com

Dr Kalam, please can you tell me a little about your daily schedule? What’s it like?

The garden here has a 107-year old tree. Edwin Lutyens himself built and stayed in this house — so he maybe somewhere here (laughs).

His relatives had come to see this building.

The 107-year-old tree is beautiful. Parrots and various other birds live at the top and at the bottom live peacocks. Every year there are baby peacocks. I have a very bioactive tree.

I walk for 1 hour and 15 minutes every day. I spend time in my library.

In a month, I spend 15 days travelling in India. For ten days in a year, I go abroad. I am an honorary professor at the University of Beijing.

Every month, I meet a minimum of 100,000 young people. A million people in a year. So far I have met 18 million young people below the age of 25 in my country.

You get 300 e-mails everyday and spend two hours answering them. When did this process begin? When did you start actively engaging with young people?

It all started when I wrote Wings of Fire, in which I conveyed my life, how I had lived it, how I got myself educated, how I started meeting youth…

I was also teaching at Anna University at that time. After my work as scientific advisor, then projector director SLV 3, programme director AGNI — after all that I went in 2001 to Anna University as a professor.

I also get some handwritten letters. I consider them very important and I love to reply to them because they come from people from the grassroots who do not have access to the Internet. They come with unique questions and I have to give unique answers.

APJ Abdul Kalam

You mention what President Mandela told you about courage in your book — who are some of the most inspiring world leaders you have met?

Two world leaders exclusively come to my mind — Mahatma Gandhi and his unique life. Similarly, Nelson Mandela. I went to the prison where Mandela lived.

Where there is righteousness in the heart, there is beauty in the character. That’s the example of Mahatma Gandhi throughout his life.

In 2006, I travelled in the same kind of train with a steam engine from Durban to Pietermaritzburg. I could imagine the courage which Gandhiji showed in that cold winter.

Ahimsa dharma came after the battle of Kalinga. It transformed King Ashoka. The second time ahimsa dharma was put into action was by Mahatma Gandhi at Pietermaritzburg.

This book gives three messages. First: You can become a unique personality. Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were unique.

The other important thing about this book is about continuously acquiring knowledge. Thirdly, when the problem arises — become the captain of the problem and defeat it.

You envisioned a growth plan for India called Vision 2020. How close are we to achieving that vision, in view of that deadline being six years away?

Actually India 2020 is a vision for an economically developed India by 2020. Up to 2008 our GDP was 8 to 9 per cent. Then there was a problem across the Atlantic Ocean, and our GDP crashed to 6 to 7 per cent, then to 5.5 and then to 5 per cent.

So in the 2008-2014 period, we had a slack in our development programme.

Six years is a long period in a nation like India with 600 million youth, nowhere in the democratic world there exists this strength.

We also have a natural way of life. Our agriculture is doing well. We have 250 to 260 million tons of food. Our IT, small scale and pharma industries are doing very well.

Of course, we have to do lots in the development of the rural area. We have 600,000 villages where 700 million people live. We have to Provide Urban Amenities to Rural Areas (PURA). Seven thousand PURAS are needed to lift 600,000 villages.

Even now it is not too late. Fortunately, I understand the present government is taking a priority for PURAS. If they push it along with small scale industry and smart waterways, then definitely 2020 — plus or minus 2 years — we can get there.

So you are confident by 2022, that we may be able to do it?

We can do it, provided we have a national vision.

Do we have that national vision?

From 1930 to 1947, we wanted Freedom. Our caste system vanished, our religions vanished, our differences vanished and we were fighting only for Independence. I call that the first mission that India had.

The second vision: Economic development. If you work like that and declare that mission in Parliament and people and government work for it, irrespective of whichever party they belong to, it is possible. Because our resources are youth power and our natural resources.

The Book Cover

Image: President Kalam’s latest book Forge Your Future

In your book, you say ‘The orientation must turn from the past to the future and focus on how India can become a developed nation. The real issue is that we are not to see ourselves as a nation and because of that there is no national vision.’

Why do you think we have not been able to see ourselves as a nation?

When we see the types of conflicts all around — religious conflict, caste system, language problems — any big nation will have such types of problems but the nation can be united for a big cause.

Independence was a big cause that united us. That’s why I am pushing this idea that the tool for India Vision 2020 is Providing Urban Amenities to Rural Areas. This way we can enhance village development. I have talked about all this in my book.

We are requesting you to drink sugar cane juice or tender coconut or

When skirts were not there weren’t our girls studying?
Didn’t we know about music in India before disco came?
Were all Indians bald without Pantene?
Weren’t there any scholars in India before we knew the language English?

Buy and support Indian goods and save our country.
If all Indians stop buying foreign products for a span ry in the world.
In just 90 days our ₹2 will be equivalent to 1 dollar.

We all should join together and do it because this is our country.
If we don’t stand up for our country then we will lose our wealth to foreign countries.

We forward so many jokes and messages and greetings,
let us forward this message so that it reaches all the Indians.

இப்படி ஒரு விபரீதம் நடக்கப்போகிறது என்ற எந்த பயமும் இல்லாமல் நாடே நிம்மதியாய் உறங்கிக்கொண்டு இருக்கிறது,

ஒவ்வொருவருக்கும் காலையில் கண்விழிக்கும் போது தான் அந்த விபரீதத்தின் விளைவு தெரியும்,

அது வேறொன்றும் இல்லை
மக்களுக்கு பணத்தின் மீதான மோகம் அதிகரித்துவிட்டதால் மக்களை அந்த பைத்தியத்தில் இருந்து விடுவிக்கும் நோக்கத்திற்காக
இத்தனை வருடங்கள் நாம் சேர்த்து வைத்த பணமெல்லாம் இன்று நள்ளிரவு முதல் வெறும் காகிதங்களாகவே கருதப்படும், அவற்றிற்கு எந்த ஒரு மதிப்பும் கிடையாது, என்று மத்திய அரசு அறிவித்துவிட்டது.

தங்கம் மட்டும் எப்போதும் போல் ஒரு விலைமதிப்புமிக்க உலோகமாக கருதப்படும்!

இந்த அறிவிப்பு தெரியாமல் எல்லா மக்களும் கொறட்டை விட்டு தூங்கிக்கொண்டு இருக்கிறார்கள்!

வழக்கம் போல் நம் தலையை சொறிந்தபடி காலை ஐந்து மணிக்கு காபிபோட பால்பாக்கெட்டை தேடி வாசலுக்கு வர காம்பௌன்ட் கேட்டில் வெறும் பை மட்டும்தான் தொங்குகிறது பாலை காணோம், பால்காரனுக்கு போனை போட, இனிமே பணம் சம்பாதித்து என்ன பண்ணபோறோம் அதான் பால் போடல.

போய் நியூஸ் பாருங்க என்றதும் tv யை on பண்ண பொதிகை மட்டும் தான் வேலை செய்கிறது.

Private channels எல்லாம் மூடப்பட்டுவிட்டன… பேப்பர்காரனும் வரவில்லை…

இந்த தகவல் பரபரப்பாக நாடு முழுவதும் பரவியது.

உறவினர்களுக்கு தகவல் சொல்ல போனை எடுக்க எந்த போனும் வேலை செய்யவில்லை
bsnl ம் std booth களும் மட்டும் தான் வேலை செய்கின்றன.

இனிமேல் பணத்திற்கு மதிப்பு இல்லையென்றால் எதைக்கொடுத்து அரிசி பருப்பு போன்ற அத்தியாவசிய பொருட்களை வாங்குவது,?!

மக்கள் எல்லோரும் super market, மளிகை கடைக்காரனை போய் பார்க்க எதுவும் விக்கிறதுக்கு இல்லம்மா எல்லாத்தையும் எங்க குடும்பத்துக்காக வச்சிகிட்டோம், என்று உணவுப்பொருட்களை பதுக்கிக்கொண்டார்கள்.

வாங்கி வைத்திருந்த உணவுப்பொருட்கள் எல்லாம் கொஞ்ச நாளில் காலியாக விட நாடுமுழுவதும் உணவுப்பொருட்களை தேடி ஓட ஆரம்பித்தார்கள்.

IT company கள், தொழிற்சாலைகள், சினிமா தியேட்டர்கள், போக்குவரத்து நிறுவனங்கள், எல்லாம் மூடப்பட்டுவிட்டன.

கொஞ்சம் ரயில்களும், அரசு பஸ்களும் மட்டும் இயங்குகின்றன,

அரசு ஊழியர்கள் எல்லோருக்கும் மாதம் 25 கிலோ அரிசியும், 10 கிலோ கோதுமையும் சம்பளமாக வழங்கப்பட்டது.

பெட்ரோல் பங்க்குகளில் ஒரு கிராம் தங்கத்திற்கு 10 லிட்டர் பெட்ரோல் தரப்பட்டது.

எல்லோரும் சைக்கிள் பயன்படுத்த ஆரம்பித்தார்கள்.

ரயில் மற்றும் பஸ்ஸில் பயணம் செய்வோரிடமும், மின்சாரம் மற்றும் டெலிபோன் பயன்படுத்துவோரிடமும் மாதக்கட்டணமாக தங்கம் பெறப்பட்டது.

நகரம் முழுவதும் ரிக்சா, குதிரை வண்டி, மாட்டுவண்டி போன்றவை புழக்கத்திற்கு வந்தது.

நாடே போர்க்களம்போல் அல்லோலப் பட்டுக்கொண்டு இருக்க விவசாயிகள் மட்டும் எந்தவித பதட்டமோ சலனமோ இன்றி எப்போதும் போல் கோழி கூவியதும் கலப்பையுடன் உழவுக்கு சென்றுகொண்டு இருந்தார்கள்!

வாரச்சந்தைகளில் விவசாயிகளிடம் அரிசி பருப்பு வாங்க, நகைக்கடை அதிபர்களும் பெரிய செல்வந்தர்களும் அடகுக்கடை சேட்டுகளும் தங்கத்தோடு வரிசையில் நின்றார்கள்.

உணவுப்பொருட்களுக்காக பங்களா கார் போன்றவை எல்லாம் விவசாயிகளிடம் விற்கப்பட்டது.

வேலைதேடி எல்லோரும் கிராமங்களுக்கு செல்ல மூன்றுவேளை உணவுடன் மாதந்தோறும் குடும்பத்திற்கு தேவையான உணவுப்பொருட்கள் சம்பளமாக வழங்கப்பட்டது.

ஒட்டுமொத்த தனியார் கல்விநிறுவனங்கள் எல்லாம் மூடப்பட்டு அரசு பள்ளிகளும் கல்லூரிகளும் மட்டுமே இயங்கின.

Bank கள் எல்லாம் ஆடுமாடுகள் கட்ட பயன்படுத்தப்பட்டன.

வெளிநாடுகளில் இருந்து பெட்ரோல் வாங்க மட்டுமே தங்கம் பயன்படுத்தப்பட்டது. அரசுக்கு தங்கம் பற்றாக்குறையாகும் போதெல்லாம் விவசாயிகளிடம் கடனாக பெற்றார்கள்.

நாட்டு மக்கள் ஒவ்வொருவருக்கும் அரை ஏக்கர் விவசாய நிலம் வாங்குவதே வாழ்நாள் லட்சியமாக மாறிப்போனது

வாகனங்களால் ஏற்படுத்தப்பட்டு காற்றை அசுத்தப்படுத்திய புகைமண்டலம் நாளாக நாளாக குறைய உலக வெப்பமயமாதல் குறைந்து
பருவமழை தவறாமல் பெய்யத்துவங்கியது.

வறண்டபூமியெல்லாம் தவறாது மழை பெய்ததினால் விவசாய நிலங்களாக மாறின.

ஒவ்வொரு குடும்பத்திற்கும் தேவையான உணவுப்பொருட்கள் போதுமான அளவு கிடைத்ததால் மீதி இருந்த உணவுப்பொருட்கள் வெளிநாட்டுக்கு ஏற்றுமதி செய்யப்பட்டு போதுமான மருத்துவ வசதிகள் ஏற்படுத்தப்பட்டன!

பணத்தின் மீதான மோகம் காணாமல் போனதாலும், tv, mobile, internet, போன்றவைகளை இழந்ததாலும் உறவுகளின் வலிமை புரியத்தொடங்கியது.

அப்பா, அம்மா, அண்ணன், தம்பி, என ஒவ்வொருவரின் முக்கியத்துவமும் தெரிய ஆரம்பித்தது.

பக்கத்து வீட்டின் சுக துக்கங்கள் நம்மையும் பாதிக்க தொடங்கியது.

பணம் எனும் மாயவலையில் சிக்கியிருந்த நாமெல்லாம் இயந்திரங்கள் இல்லை, மனிதர்கள் எனும் உணர்வுகள் நிறைந்த உன்னதப்பிறவிகள் என்பது புரிய ஆரம்பித்தது,

எல்லாம் இருந்தும் எந்தவித பொழுதுபோக்கும் இல்லாமல் இருந்த மக்களை மகிழ்விப்பதற்காக ரஜினி, கமல், அஜித், விஜய் எல்லாம் கிராமங்கள் தோறும் நாடகம் நடத்தி அரிசி பருப்பு வாங்கிச்சென்றார்கள்

திருவிழா காலங்களில் த்ரிஷா, நயன்தாராவின் கரகாட்டத்திற்கு மிகுந்த வரவேற்பு கிடைத்தது.

தயவு செய்து கரகாட்டத்தையும் குறட்டையையும் நிறுத்திவிட்டு கொஞ்சம் கண்விழித்து பாருங்கள்

இது கனவுதான்!

ஆனால் எல்லா கனவுகளும் சந்தோஷத்தை மட்டுமே தருவதில்லை.

சில கனவுகள் நம் தூக்கத்தையே கலைக்கும் சக்திகொண்டவை
இந்த கனவும் அப்படித்தான்…

கல்லுக்குள் ஒளிந்திருக்கும் கடவுள் போல்தான்

காசும் காகிதத்திற்குள் ஒளிந்திருக்கிறது.

கடவுளை கல்லென்று வாதிக்கும் மேதாவிகள் கூட, காசை காகிதம் என்று ஒப்புக்கொள்ளவதில்லை காரணம் பணம் என்பது எந்த மனதையும் மண்ணாக்கும் மாயப்பேய்!

பணம் நம்மிடம் அடிமைப்பட்டு இருக்கவேண்டுமே ஒழிய பணத்திற்கு நாம் அடிமையாகக்கூடாது…

परोपकाराय फलन्ति वृक्षा: परोपकाराय वहन्ति नद्यः।

परोपकाराय दुहन्ति गावः परोपकाराय इदं शरीरम्।

” When people hurt you Over and Over think of them as Sand paper.
They Scratch & hurt you, but in the end you are polished and they are finished. ”
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great."- Mark Twain.
