‘When the home is happy the world is happy’, says Dr Kalam

On Nov 7th it seemed all roads in Sharjah led to the Expo Centre. We braved traffic enroute and outside the centre only to find a sea of people at each information counters. Two words were clearly audible everywhere ‘Kalam and hall no 5’. And when we finally managed to locate the hall we found a large crowd who had left not a single seat empty. Within minutes in walked the eminent scientist and India’s former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam with an entourage of dignitaries. Post a standing ovation and a thunderous applause Dr Kalam took to the stage. Clearly his style of engaging with the audience gets him top points for being a great orator. Everyone was in rapt attention as he made the crowd repeat “When home is happy society is happy, when society is happy nation is happy, when nation is happy world is happy.”

A noted author with several books to his credit Dr Kalam urged all parents in the audience to create a home library with at least 10 books. Watch less television and discuss books at the dining table, he said.

The other important message from Dr Kalam to his little admirers was to have a little prayer room in their house where they can thank God for all the blessings in their lives. The key to your success it to make your mother happy, he told every child and made them chant “I will make my mother happy. If my mother is happy, then my home is happy, if my home is happy, then society is happy.”

When it came to the turn of the audience to ask questions Dr Kalam’s young fans could not have enough of him. Finally Kalam told them to email their questions and he promised to answer them in 24 hours.
