It is said that you can either add years to your life or add life to your years.

A glorious example of the latter is the life of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam who completed one year on 25th July 2008 after demitting the office of the President of India. I read an article by him in the Deccan Chronicle dated 30th July 08 on the eventful one year he just completed out of office. His diary speaks volumes on his passion for the youth of the country for whom he is a mentor, friend, philosopher and guide. He finds time to guide PhD students, interacts with university students in India and abroad, visited various under developed areas of the country and travels to foriegn countries on invitation. He also found time to address the "Lead India" movement and addressed a number of national and international conferences on space research, energy, health care, agriculture and education. He is also a great proponent of Corporate Social Responsibility .

Leaders of all walks of life have great lessons to emulate from Dr Kalam’s example. His advice to the youth of the country to realize their full potential through the association of good books, good teachers and good human beings is of great value. Dr Kalam is a true Leadership Role Model for all.

  1. Thanks for bringing this perspective of adding life to years. Dr. Kalam is a standing example of passion, energy and drive. Quite often people are lost in the rat race forgetting the meaning to life – then where is the time to add life to years? A lot of it has to be self driven with the required energy and passion. Leaders like Dr.Kalam will serve as an inspiration in this journey.

  5. Personally I’m a little a little taken back by the whole Google Mayday update. From what I can tell it looks like Google’s doing all that it acn do to undo it’s Google Mayday update. This update was one of the largest, and possibly worst, update I’ve ever seen Google come out with. I’m really hoping that they begin to revert back to the old algorithm as this completely jeopordizes their search index and takes a giant leap backwards.
