Dr APJ Kalam was the 11th president of India, Chief scientist for Indian Space Research Organization and Father of the Indian Nuclear Bomb. He is also the son of a fisherman and grew up middle class. He has a vision to transform India into a developed nation by 2020 – Vision 20/20. Sadly he served only one term as president – the political hacks back home replaced him with one of their own. [ Presidents don’t get elected in India – they are appointed by the ruling party and the party that had appointed him lost the general elections). He is visiting Seattle and stopped at Microsoft to talk to Bill/Melinda and give a speech to employees. The text of the speech apart from the other speeches he gave are in his website. He is doing some amazing work – really unleashing the power of software and technology to uplift rural India
