A musical drama on the life of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
Script & soundtrack: Gulzar
An NCPA Presentation in association with Sanskaar Valley School, Bhopal
A brilliant scientist, an exemplary President, an academician, a writer, a philosopher and a visionary who believed that we are all born with a divine fire within us, Dr. Abdul Kalam was a role model and an inspiration to millions of Indians, especially for the younger generation.
His extraordinary journey through various stages: from the young carefree man in Rameswaram to an engineering student following his passion, to the aerospace scientist who took India’s space programme to another level, to a President like none other, is brought to life through an enactment from his autobiography Wings of Fire narrated in the voice of the eminent poet and writer Gulzar. Over 60 students of the Sanskaar Valley School, Bhopal, through lyrical dance movements and theatrical representation, enact the various events that influenced Kalam and led him to achieve all that he did in life.
His inspirational triad: aspiration (khwahish), hope (umeed) and confidence (yakeen) is sure to stay with the young actors in the play as well as the audience, young and old, long after the curtain call.
