At a European Union conference, Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam gave the most inspiring and motivational speech ever. He received a standing ovation and loud applause for such an extraordinary speech.

“Listen, gentlemen, I’m indeed delighted to be with the honourable members of the European Parliament on the occasion of the golden jubilee year of the European Union.

I am reminded of the dream of an Indian poet KANNIYAN POONGUNDRANAR who articulated in 3,000 years back in Tamil classic “PURANANOORU”

He says you’re the “”Yathum oorae yavarum Kaeleer” ” which means I am a world citizen every citizen is my own kith and kin.

He said three thousand years back.

As we say in India:

Where there is righteousness in the heart,  where there is righteousness in the heart, there is beauty in the character.

When there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the home.

When there is harmony in the home there is harmony, there is an order in the nation.

When there is order in the nation there is peace in the world.”
