Kalam's 4-point formula for success

Recalling how he got his aim to become an aeronautical engineer, Kalam said his teacher explained the phenomenon of a bird’s flight so inspiringly that he aimed to make aircrafts one day.

Second, Kalam went on, is to acquire the right knowledge. He narrated how India’s pioneer aerospace engineer Satish Dhawan taught him the nuances of developing contra-rotating propeller. Third, Kalam said, is to work hard towards one’s goal. Last, but not the least, one should learn to manage his/her failures.

The building of the Brindavan College of Engineering was inaugurated. Minister for Higher Education V S Acharya, KPCC President G Parameshwar, NAAC Director H A Ranganath and others spoke.
