Dr Abdul Kalam was well versed in Tamil Literature and often referred to them in his discussions with others. He was a scholar in "Tamil Thirukkural" and very often has made quotes from "Thirukkural" in his speeches at the Conferences, Meetings and Seminars in India and Overseas.

This verse states "Every Country is my Country and every Citizen is my Kinsman" stressing the universal nature of the Internationl Relations, and he also explained on the content of the balance portion of this Tamil verse at the conference.
