We possess the strength to beat a Diamond in our hearts
We will win, we will accomplish, and we will wipe off worries
With god’s blessings, anything can be ours
If God is on our side, then who can stand against us?
— APJ Abdul Kalam
This poem was composed by the late Dr APJ Abdul Kalam for young children to inspire them and to make them dream. To quote the great man, “Dream is not something you see in your sleep, dream is something that does not let you sleep.” The world today mourns the death of this great soul. Thank you for your contribution to mankind and for making us dream.
