For India's 71st Republic Day, Apple Honors Missile Man Dr APJ Abdul

To celebrate the 71st Republic Day, Apple India shared an ad, showing children reciting a poem that India's Missile Man Dr. APJ Abdul read with kids.

India has so many inspirational stories across various fields, and if we talk about the Missile Man of the country, you may immediately think of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. He has contributed a lot to the Indian aerospace program.

And to celebrate the 71st Republic Day of the country, Apple shared an ad on its Facebook page. The ad, which lasts for 54 seconds, shows a group of children reciting a poem that Abdul Kalam shared with children during a speech. The poem, written by Rumi, was recited by the kids along with Kalanm’s voice saying:

Dr. Abdul Kalam is not only the Missile Man but was also India’s 11th President, serving between 2002 and 2007. He used to work as an aerospace engineer, working closely with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

With his knowledge, Kalam made important contributions to the development of India’s military missiles and the civilian space program, making him the Missile Man of India.

Kalam has been awarded many accolades for what he contributed to the country, such as the NSS Von Braun award, Hoover Medal, Bharat Ratna, Padma Vibhusan, Padma Bhushan, etc.

Apple India posted the ad in question on its YouTube channel, showing how serious Apple is with attempts to conquer India and consumers in the country. Notably, the video was shot completely on the iPhone 11.

Recently, Apple began manufacturing the iPhone XR in India and exported the product globally.

According to a recent report by Counterpoint Research, despite a modest market share of just about 2%, Apple India had a good year in 2019. After declining the iPhone XR price, the handset became widely loved in the Indian market and became the best selling iPhone in the country.

And even the lastest, expensive iPhone 11 got a very good response from consumers here due to its amazing battery life and cameras.
