Antoine de Saint-Exupery was a famous French writer and an aviator whose image is carved in the French literary world as a legend and a cultural hero who merged action with reflection. As a young boy, Antoine possessed and projected an unusual combination of poetic sensibility and mechanical inventiveness. He was quite fascinated by engineering and engineering drawings. As he grew up, he soon found his vocation as a pilot of a famous airmail line and was promoted to the post of ‘Compagnie Generale Aeropostale’. During his stint as the pilot, he discovered the explorer in himself, and thrived in that atmosphere to emerge as an avid voyager. It was during this period that Antoine began to write again extensively as he found the inspiration in the surroundings and in that desolate area. One of his most famous literary works, ‘The Little Prince’, boosted his status in the worldwide literary circle posthumously and earned him the national hero status in France. In July 1944, he set out from Borgo, Corsica to overfly occupied France and never returned. Sixty years later wreckage found from the seabed near Marseille was identified as that of his plane but the cause of the crash is still unknown.
