Inspirational Story Of APJ Abdul Kalam!!
There were about 70 scientists working on a very hectic
project. All of them were really frustrated due to the
pressure of work and the demands of their boss but
everyone was loyal to him and did not think of quitting
the job.
One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him –
Sir, I have promised to my children that I will
take them to the exhibition going on in our township. So
I want to leave the office at 5 30 pm.
His boss replied “OK, You’re permitted to leave the
office early today”.
The Scientist started working. He continued his work
after lunch. As usual he got involved to such an extent
that he looked at his watch when he felt he was close
to completion.
The time was 8.30 PM. Suddenly he remembered of the
promise he had given to his children.
He looked for his boss, He was not there. Having told
him in the morning itself,
he closed everything and left for home.

Children were not there. His wife alone was sitting
in the hall and reading magazines. The situation was
explosive, any talk would boomerang on him. His wife
asked him “Would you like to have coffee or shall I
straight away serve dinner if you are hungry.
The man replied “If you would like to have coffee, I too
will have but what about Children ??” .
Wife replied “You don’t know?? , Your manager came
here at 5.15 PM and has taken the children to the
exhibition “.
What had really happened was …. The boss who granted
him permission was observing him working seriously at
5.00 PM. He thought to himself, this person will not
leave the work, but if he has promised his children they
should enjoy the visit to exhibition. So he took the lead
in taking them to
exhibition The boss does not have to do it every time.
But once it is done, loyalty is established.
That is why all the scientists at Thumba continued to
work under their boss even though the stress was
By the way, can you hazard a guess as to who the boss
was ?
He was none other than Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam – Former
president of India.
