Hi I am Kalam!
I come from a small village in Rajasthan, I live there with my mother and little brother. Life here is very difficult. Getting proper meal is a rarity so going to school is just out of question. But I like reading, learning new things and making new friends. When I grow up, I want to be a big man, wear good clothes and a tie and become successful.
Mother says that my brain works “Rail se bhi tez”. To help my mother support the family I work with Bhati Mamu at his dhaba. He has a camel, Laxmi. I am her best friend. Tourists from various countries stop at our dhaba. I like talking to them and learning their languages.
APJ Kalam ji is my role model. I am his most obedient student. I know that I can become like him if I go to school.
I hate it when people call me Chhotu; because I AM KALAM.
