The story behind his presidency is very interesting, He never think to became a president but in the reign of Atal bihari Vajpayee, one day Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Azad was teaching somewhere in institution. PM Atal bihari Vajpayee make him a call and said are free can we talk, Dr. Abdul Kalam Azad replied no sir I am not free I will call you back after finishing this class.
PM Atal bihari Vajpayee said ok please, APJ Abdul Kalam Azad finished his class then call him back Atal bihari Vajpayee from other side said sir will you be our next president please, Abdul Kalam said no sir I can’t beg for vote I am a teacher not politician. Atal bihari Vajpayee said you don’t need to ask any one for vote you just stand up as nominee, everyone wants you to be our president. And finally when Abdul Kalam nominated his name for President post each and every vote goes to him without any argument. Hence, a excellent brain sat on president post.
