Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam better known as A. P. J. Abdul Kalam ( 15 October 1931 – 27 July 2015), was the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007.

He spent the next four decades as a scientist and science administrator, mainly at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and was intimately involved in India’s civilian space programme and military missile development efforts.

He also played a pivotal organisational, technical, and political role in India’s Pokhran-II nuclear tests in 1998, the first since the original nuclear test by India in 1974. ( From Wikipedia)
