Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tribute to late President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam on his 84th birth anniversary.
“Salutations to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam on his birth anniversary”, Prime Minister Modi said in an official release.
PM Modi will also unveil a statue of the former President and inaugurate a photo exhibition in the capital as part of Kalam’s birth anniversary celebrations.
Bharat Ratna awardee Abdul Kalam, who passed away on July 27, was the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007.
Before becoming the President, Abdul Kalam had spent four decades as a scientist and science administrator, mainly at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
He was involved in India’s civilian space programme and military missile development efforts, earning him the title of ‘Missile man’.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni might have paved the way for India’s victory with an unbeaten 92 in the second cricket ODI, but the skipper preferred to credit his bowlers for the series-levelling win against South Africa here tonight.
Going through the toughest phase of his international career, Dhoni produced a captain’s knock to guide India to a respectable 247 for nine and then showed good leadership acumen with smart bowling changes to bundle out South Africa for 225 in 43.4 overs.
“What was important for us was to get early breakthroughs and that was provided by the spinners. I felt the spinners bowled well on a wicket where there was less assistance for them. Later on the fast bowlers took wickets at crucial intervals. Overall, it was a complete team effort,” Dhoni told reporters at the post-match press conference.
“It is such a victory where the bowlers’ contribution is more than the batsmen. Some bowlers contributed by scoring runs as well. In a score like 250 if your bowlers contribute 40 odd runs it means a lot,” he said.
A wide range of strokes were on display as Dhoni answered his critics with an unbeaten knock that came off 86 balls.
‘Captain Cool’ batted with tail-enders with a calm head as India scored 82 runs off the last 10 overs to put on a board a decent total, which at one stage looked impossible having slumped to 165 for seven in 40 overs.
