At the current situation, Sonia Gandhi is the most popular celebrity in the country with her lead role in ruling the congress party in the country. Further, her son, Rahul Gandhi, and her daughter, Priyanka Gandhi too occupy the front lines in the leading newspapers and magazines, very often. The speculation that Rahul Gandhi might compete for political powers is increasing all the time. Amid all these top celebrities, another true political personality who is knowledgeable and ethical and has occupied a major role in people’s heart, especially youngsters’, is Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam who is well known as ‘People’s President,’ always!
