Who inspired Abdul Kalam? Role model of Abdul Kalam

Searching over the internet you can rarely find answers to this question.

Lucky you, if you have found this website.

I have flipped over 758 questions that were asked to doctor Kalam by students.

Many students were curious to find, "who is the role model of Abdul Kalam?"

One student was clever enough to give 4-5 options to Dr Kalam to choose from. She had good knowledge about doctor Kalam. She already knew some persons in Kalam's life, who have influenced Abdul Kalam. For example, Jalaluddin, Shamsuddin, Sivasubramania Iyer etc.

Who was the role model of Abdul Kalam, mentors and inspiration of Abdul Kalam, His parents and Siva Subramaniam Iyer,

Abdul Kalam kept consistent with his answer. He answered her the same thing that he generally answers everybody.

His parents and his middle school teacher, sir Sivasubramania Iyer, are the persons who inspired Dr Kalam.

In other instances, one student asked, "who is your ideal?" Abdul Kalam added, professor Vikram Sarabhai and professor Satish Dhawan were the ideals of Dr Kalam.

Was Jallaluddin mentor of Abdul Kalam?

Dr. Kalam has mentioned somewhere that his brother in law Jallaluddin was his first mentor. He was the only one in the town who could read and write. Abdul Kalam was 10 years old, and, used to observe Jallaluddin's expansive and curious mind.

Did Abdul Kalam had mentors other than his parents and teachers?

When Dr. Abdul Kalam is asked about his role models, he always used to tell that his parents and teachers were his role models. Apart from these, among his speeches he has claimed: Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Eisenstein, Abraham Lincoln, Caliph Omar and Emperor Ashoka as his role models.
We can conclude that, Dr. Kalam had more than one role models. But his parents and teachers were his primary role models.
