Dr Brahma Prakash’s invaluable advise to Dr. Kalam

a p j abdul kalamAs a young engineer, I worked with Dr Brahma Prakash. He taught me how tolerance of others’ views and opinions is essential in building teams and accomplishing tasks that are beyond the individuals’ capacities. He taught me that life is a precious gift, but it comes with responsibility. With this gift, we are expected to use our talents to make the world a better place, to live an ethical and well-balanced life, and to prepare for the spiritural life – which is eternal.

Dr Brahma Prakash changed the way I saw the world. He once told me, “Kalam, if you see this world as mean and rude, it will interfere with your concentration. Negative thinking is similar to carrying twenty bags of luggage on a trip. This baggage will make your trip miserable, and progress will be slow.”
