Summary in English

Abdul Kalam was born in a middle class Muslim family in Rameshwaram. He had three brothers and one sister. His father was a generous and wise man. His mother was a hospitable lady. They lived in their ancestral house on Mosque Street. His father lived a simple life but provided all necessities to children. His parents were neither much educated nor rich, yet were generous and kind. Many outsiders ate with the family every day. Kalam inherited the qualities of honesty and self – discipline from his parents.

Kalam was only 8 years old when the Second World War broke out in 1939. Then there was great demand for tamarind seeds. Abdul used to collect those seeds and sell them in the market. His cousin Shamsuddin distributed newspapers and employed him as a helping hand. This way he earned his first wages. He inherited faith in goodness and kindness from his parents.

Kalam’s family respected all religions. They took part in the Hindu festivals. His mother and grandmother told stories from the Ramayana and the life of the Prophet to the children at bed time. Kalam had three friendsRamanandha Sastry, the son of a high priest of the Rameshwaram temple, Aravindam and Sivaprakasan. They had different religious backgrounds and upbringing. They never felt any difference among themselves. They adopted different professions when they grew up.

One day when Abdul was in 5th standard at the Rameshwaram Elementary School, a new teacher came to their class. He used to wear a cap, which set him apart as a Muslim. Kalam always sat in the front row- next to Ramanandha Sastry, but the teacher could not tolerate a Hindu Priest’s son sitting with a Muslim boy. Kalam was asked to sit on the back bench. Both the friends felt very sad and told their parents about the incident after school. Ramanandha’s father called the teacher and told him not to spread the poison of communal hatred and social inequality in the minds of innocent children. He told the teacher to either apologize or leave the school and city. The teacher apologized and reformed himself.

Once Abdul’s science teacher invited him to dinner at his home. His wife refused to serve Kalam dinner in her kitchen as she believed in religious segregation. The teacher himself served him food and sat beside him to eat his own meal. His wife observed from behind the door and did not find any change in Abdul’s behaviour. After dinner, the teacher again invited him to join them next weekend. This time the wife served food inside the kitchen with her own hands.

With the second world war have ended, Kalam asked his father to permit him to go to Ramanthapuram to study. His father knew that Kalam would have to go away to grow up and so he permitted him. He told his hesitant wife that they should give their children their love but, not force their thoughts on them.

Moral of My Childhood: My Childhood summary brings out the essence of the childhood of this great Indian president in front of the readers.

Summary in Hindi

एपीजे अब्दुल कलाम एक मुस्लिम परिवार में पैदा हुए थे जो मध्यम वर्ग के थे। इसके अलावा, उसके तीन भाई थे। इसके अलावा, कलाम की एक बहन भी थी। इसके अलावा, उनके पिता और माँ दोनों अच्छे स्वभाव के थे। इसके अलावा, कलाम का बचपन का घर पैतृक था।

एपीजे अब्दुल कलाम के पिता ने एक ऐसा जीवन जिया, जिसे कोई भी बहुत सरल कह सकता है। फिर भी, उनके पिता ने अपने बच्चों के लिए सभी आवश्यक वस्तुएँ उपलब्ध कराईं। इसके अलावा, उनके माता-पिता के पास कोई शिक्षा नहीं थी और वे अमीर भी नहीं थे। इसके अलावा, कई बाहरी लोग हर दिन परिवार के साथ खाना खाते हैं। साथ ही, कलाम में अपने माता-पिता के कारण आत्म-अनुशासन और ईमानदारी के गुण थे।

कलाम का परिवार धर्मनिरपेक्ष था। उनके परिवार ने सभी धर्मों को बराबर सम्मान दिया। इसके अलावा, हिंदू त्योहारों में उनके परिवार की भागीदारी थी। इसके अलावा, कलाम ने अपनी दादी और मां से पैगंबर और रामायण की कहानियां सुनीं। यह सब उनके परिवार में मौजूद धर्मनिरपेक्षता को स्पष्ट रूप से दर्शाता है।

कलाम के बचपन में दोस्ती प्रभावशाली थी। इसके अलावा, उसके तीन दोस्त थे। इसके अलावा, उनकी धार्मिक पृष्ठभूमि अलग थी। इसके अलावा, उन दोस्तों के बीच भेदभाव की भावनाओं का कोई निशान नहीं था। कलाम समेत ये सभी दोस्त अलग-अलग पेशों में चले गए।

5 वीं कक्षा में, एक नया शिक्षक कलाम की कक्षा में आया। क्लास में कलाम टोपी पहने हुए थे। इस टोपी ने निश्चित रूप से कलाम को एक अलग मुस्लिम पहचान दी। इसके अलावा, कलाम हमेशा हिंदू धर्मगुरु रामानंद के पास बैठे थे। यह कुछ ऐसा था जिसे नया शिक्षक बर्दाश्त नहीं कर पा रहा था। नतीजतन, कलाम को पीठ के बल बैठना पड़ा। इस घटना के बाद दोनों दोस्तों को बहुत दुःख हुआ और यह बात उन्होंने अपने माता-पिता को बताई।

इसके अलावा, रामानंद के पिता ने शिक्षक से मिलकर उन्हें सूचित किया कि वे सामाजिक असमानता और सांप्रदायिक घृणा न फैलाएं। उन्होंने मांग की कि माफी जरूर आनी चाहिए। इसके अलावा, इनकार के मामले में, शिक्षक को छोड़ना होगा। नतीजतन, शिक्षक की प्रकृति में सुधार हुआ और उससे माफी मांगी गई।

एक अवसर पर, अब्दुल के एक विज्ञान शिक्षक ने उन्हें अपने घर खाने पर आने के लिए कहा। हालाँकि, इस विज्ञान शिक्षक की पत्नी धार्मिक अलगाव में विश्वास के कारण कलाम की सेवा करने के लिए सहमत नहीं थी। नतीजतन, विज्ञान शिक्षक ने कलाम को भोजन परोसने का निर्णय लिया। इसके अलावा, शिक्षक खुद कलाम के पास बैठकर खाना खाते थे। विज्ञान शिक्षक की पत्नी दरवाजे के पीछे यह सब देख रही थी। विज्ञान शिक्षक ने कलाम को अगले सप्ताह के अंत में भोजन का दूसरा निमंत्रण दिया। इस बार, पत्नी ने अपने हाथों से सेवा की, लेकिन रसोई के अंदर से।

कलाम की परवरिश तब समाप्त हुई जब उन्हें द्वितीय विश्व युद्ध की समाप्ति के बाद आगे के अध्ययन के लिए रामनाथपुरम जाने की अनुमति मिली। उनके पिता और माँ निश्चित रूप से प्यार करते थे। हालाँकि, इस प्यार का मतलब यह नहीं था कि उन्होंने कलाम पर अपने फैसले के लिए मजबूर किया।
