About The Book

Dr APJ Kalam abolished the practice of having a larger chair for the Rashtrapati on adias when attending any function

He regularly read both the Quran and the Geeta and played the veena and wrote poetry in his spare time

His favourite Mahabharata character was Vidura because he had the courage todiffer and fight injustice in a peaceful manner

Caliph Umar, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Emperor Ashoka and Abraham Lincoln were the five greatest human beings to have lived on this earth according to Dr Kalam.The author, SM Khan,acquaints us with lesser known facts and stories which went towards making the great Dr Kalam the 'People's President'. SM Khan was press secretary to the late A P J Abdul Kalam and shared a unique relationship with the unusual President. The first state visit made by Dr Kalam in 2002 after swearing in as President was to Gujrat where he was received at the airport by the then Chief Minister and now Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Modi. Together they visited nine riot-torn areas and three relief camps. Details of this visit as well as those to the other states in India and various trips abroad in the course of his Presidency are captured in this book in a manner that is engaging and informative.

Interspersed with interesting anecdotes and happenings, this comprehensive compendium of Dr Kalam's experiences as the President of India finally culminate in his post presidency days with SM Khan's last poignant meeting with Dr Kalam just a few days before his passing away. A must read for both fans and those who wish toknow more about the People's President, Dr APJ Kalam.
