One of my best day in 2009 was Jan 17th, the Action 2020 – Unconference. This is simply a virtual platform for all the NGO’s to work together for bringing better results and for making some collective action for the betterment of the society.

One of the most important, happy and useful day in my life.
Oct 7th of 2009 (tomorrow) , Dr.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is meeting the representatives from 30 NGO’s and will be discussing on the social grounds. Dr. Kalam wanted to meet all the NGO representatives to know more about the organizations . Will be giving some advice on the development of India through the activities of Action 2020 group, which is working towards the dream vision- India 2020. Action 2020 is a network/group which links around 35 NGO’s working in and around TamilNadu. Dr.Kalam has always shown some special interest on the Action 2020 team activities.
Dr.Kalam - the man of biggest Dreams
Blossom is also part of the Action 2020 team and our representatives (mohan & Arun) are also meeting Dr.Kalam tomorrow. And its good to see a great man interested in the NGO’s works and inspiring them by his commitment and his activities.
The meeting is scheduled on 7th Oct 2009 , 8.15 pm at RAJ BHAVAN, Chennai and the time given was one hour. And we wish the meeting should be extended for some more time. So that we can get some more ideas from Dr.Kalam to proceed further. Happy to be a part of Action 2020 and happy to meet Dr.Kalam. Let me update with the happenings soon.
Yesterday (24th July ) few NGO’s had a meeting with Dr. Abdul Kalam. The meeting was about a interactive session and all the NGO’s planned to discuss about their current and future activites and to discuss about his ideas on that. Few of my known contacts from a NGO also attented the Meeting. Can any one guess the appointment time given my Dr.Kalam ???
It’s 11.00 pm and my friend messaged me after the meeting was over. The time was around 2.00 am. I just really wonder at his commitment. They also say that , his regular schedule is upto 1.00 am every day. What may be the thing makes him to work for several hours at this age? This shows that he still dreams and he is also working on that.Hope by today evening I will be getting some info about the meeting and the things held over there.
Some of the NGO’s attended the meeting are , Young Helping Minds (YHM), SIRAGU Montessori School (Suyam Trust), India Vision 2020, India Sudar, another from Cognizant(CTS) company etc., Here the most of the NGO’s are working towards Dr.Kalams vision (2020).
Though I am not the one , to completely praise Dr.Kalam for all his activites. I too have some controversial perceptions on few of his activiteis. But most times I wonder at his commitment and Interest in improving India. Hats off to Dr. Kalam.
