President's gift to children

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Carrying on Jawaharlal Nehru's legacy in quite a different way, these are letters from a President to "his" children.

A unique gift for "their" day, hundreds of questions sent to President A.P.J Abdul Kalam everyday by children will soon find answers in a new book titled "Children Ask Kalam".

Published by Pearson Education, it is a collection of communication between the President and children.

The book brings out Dr. Kalam's views on various issues from his favourite subject, science, to spirituality and the nation. While the book is a dialogue between the President and kids in India, it is also a testimony to his immense popularity with the young.

Extremely approachable, from being flooded with e-mails from children on his website to actually taking out time to answer them, the questions and the answers really bring out a role that he slips into quite easily and certainly enjoys -- that of a teacher.
