Inaugurating the session, Dr. Amitabha De, Director, IIM Shillong, said, "Dr. Kalam believed in working sincerely and tirelessly for the betterment of the nation". He also mentioned how the reputed institute would be partnering with the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) and various states to establish the Dr. Abdul Kalam Centre for Policy Research and Analysis.

Shri Madhavan Nair also spoke on the theme of the day, 'Space and Society: The Indian Scenario', and described how ISRO had grown to become a successful venture in modern India. He talked about the history of human space endeavour, and about its progression from the days of 12-inch rockets to the technological advancements of the day. He also recalled how Dr. Kalam had adopted a versatile approach towards fulfilling his commitments to society, both as a scientist and later as a President.

 

Dr. Rohit Dwivedi, Chairperson, PGPEx, highlighted Dr. Kalam’s institutional building capabilities which had put ISRO on the same pedestal as NASA.
