hi Vijay

I have been a silent reader of your blog for long, and have been impressed with your analysis and attitude in many issues. But I beg to disagree with your analysis of Mr.Kalam as president.

The president of India, as we all know, is not a very powerful position in terms of taking critical decisions for the country. Unlike the US president, the indian president has very little powers against the parliment and the ruling party. What Mr.Kalam has done is to stand as an inspiring figure to many, especially children. And regarding his talk of india exploring Mars and Amit Verma's (another favorite blogger of mine)criticism of the same, again I dont see the point. When USA dreamt of landing on the moon, USA was not as developed as today. If such dreams should be avoided in a country where the basic needs of people arent addressed, we wont be moving forward in any sense. We can say this about any scientific advancement in the country, anything which does not address the fundamental needs in a direct way.

Anyways, you have the right to your opinion, and I have to mine. I do agree that a good scientist does not make a good president automatically. But I sincerely feel Kalam has done what he could do within his limited powers to be an inspiring president.
