October 15 : World Student Day
15 October 2016 Current Affairs: The World Student Day was observed across the world on 15 October 2016.

October 15th, Dr. Abdul Kalam's birthday, is observed as World Student Day by United Nations Organization annually. In India he is highly respected as a scientist and as a great personality. 

Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen  was the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007. 

He spent the next four decades as a scientist and science administrator, mainly at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and was intimately involved in India's civilian space programme and military missile development efforts.

He thus came to be known as the Missile Man of India for his work on the development of ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology.
