Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, ex President of India, passed away yesterday. I was wondering what I could have written about him, which no one would have told ever. I haven’t met him in person nor do I have had email exchanges with him but I always look up to him for being a wonderful human being who led a selfless life. He is indeed a huge inspiration for many in my generation and I really feel privileged to be a part of the generation where we had great minds like Dr Kalam. A person with humble origins, to being the missile man, to being the President of India, he really lived up to his quote “The dream is not that you see in sleep , dream is which does not let you sleep”. When death approached, he showed his generosity, even though he was doing what he loved to do the most ie lecturing at IIM, Shillong.
Dr Kalam wanted a better and brighter India, and being Indias’ citizens, it’s our duty to fulfill his unrealized missions and visions.
