"I wanted Rashtrapathi Bhavan to be fully Solar Powered"

Came across an interview with our previous President, Dr. A P J Abdul Kalaam. It's a must read for all Indians. An excerpt:

"Last year I came up with an idea: I felt I should power the Rashtrapati Bhavan completely with solar power. For that I worked on a proposal after completing four years of my Presidential term -- and at the beginning of the fifth year. But then the environmental agencies raised a lot of questions. Before I could answer them, my term ended. I would have liked the Rashtrapati Bhavan to be the first home in India to be powered completely by solar energy.

Read the entire interview - A Leader should know how to manage failure.
