APJ Abdul Kalam got it wrong, for once. Here’s why.

APJ Abdul Kalam got it wrong, for onceI came across one of the famous quotes of Dr. Abdul Kalam a few weeks back.

Political parties have always cached in on the Marathi Manoos agenda and Mumbai of the Marathis 'wrongly' conceptualized philosophy.
