His creative mindset and perpetual optimism fired the imagination of Indian youth and became a major force behind innovation in India. As a tribute to Kalam, his vision and teachings, let us turn every corner of the campus into a library and encourage our students to read as reading helps to develop into more empathetic and well-rounded leaders that dream for self and for the nation. ”
