Kalam connects with class
A.P.J. Abdul Kalam today taught nanotechnology and convergence of technologies but the real lesson was in public relations.
The 50 MTech and Ph.D. students and 15 faculty members in the class at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, remained glued to their seats as the President lectured on applications of nanotechnology and technology convergence in two separate sessions.
"Attending a lecture by the President was a privilege. He is a very informed person. He talked about various issues related to nanotechnology," said Sayoni Mazumdar, a Ph.D. student of materials science at the institute.
