Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (1931-2015), 11th President of India is known by many names – People’s President, Missile Man and Space Scientist. But one identity he chose for himself is that of a teacher. In face, in his very last moment, on 27th July 2015, in IIM Shillong, he was performing the role of a teacher – taking a class on the topic “Creating Livable Planet Earth” amidst a 300 young students.
To commemorate Dr. Kalam on his anniversary of passage, the Centre has organized 2 such conclaves as an annual gathering with top thinkers from around the world and young selected delegates who discuss and evolve ideas for a sustainable planet.
