“Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.”

In 2012 Kalam was in Guwahati where he attended the 14th convocation function of IIT-Guwahati. Speaking at the convocation function, Kalam told students that wanted to see a “silent” Brahmaputra emerging into a “smart” waterway in the country. Kalam told the students that it is his dream to make Brahmaputra the most vibrant waterway in the country.

“Brahmaputra is very close to me. Yesterday and even today I visited the river. It is a silent river with limited activities now. My dream is to see the Brahmaputra become a smart waterway in the country,” Kalam had said then.
