As a young boy Abdul Kalam and his friends walked back home from school at Rameswaram.

On the way he and his friends rested at the bank of the village ponds.

While his friends practiced skimming pebbles over the water but Abdul Kalam sit and watch the seagull and cranes soar in the sky.

He worked very hard to win a scholarship that allow him to study at a well-known university.

One day when he entered the university campus he saw his goal displayed inside the college campus.

One day his teacher called him and reviewed his progress.

And said, “Really disappointed with your plan, I expected much more from you.”

Abdul Kalam offered several excuses but his teacher refused to listen.

Kalam pleaded, “Sir, please give me one more month I will come up with a better design.”

The teacher told kalam, “I am giving you three days if you failed to show me the design then your scholarship will be canceled.”
