At a time when scams rocking our parliamentarians come a dime a dozen, we should thank our stars that there is at least (though there are more) one public figure who not only picks cudgels on behalf of the honest dead, but also is rather bookish. Here, he spells out his reading list over the last year. The list revolves around Kalam's pet subjects: leadership and science. Browsing it makes you marvel at the breadth of the President's vision and thank providence that this erudite simple man reached the highest office of the land.
To educate and inspire, it would seem.
