Peoples PRESIDENT !!

By: ram94 Verified Member MouthShut Verified Member Posted Jul 28, 2015 General 290 Views

When anybody say'President' the person that rushes to my mind is the Great APJ Abdul Kalam. India's best aerospace engineer and a great Leader who earned himself the tag of Missile Man and the perfect symbol of meritocratic India and the most positive person!

India's 11th President APJ Abdul Kalam who was 83 died on 27th July 2015 evening at a hospital in Shillong Meghalaya, where he had gone to deliver a lecture.

His body was today flown by an Air Force helicopter to Guwahati in Assam from where it will be taken to Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present at the Delhi airport to receive his body.

The former President, who was in office from 2002 to 2007, had collapsed during the lecture at the Indian Institute of Management, Shillong, around 6.30 pm. He was taken to the Bethany hospital. Doctors said he had suffered a massive cardiac arrest.

The government has declared a seven-day national mourning as a mark of respect for the former President.

Dr Kalam played a pivotal role in the Pokhran-II nuclear test in 1998. One of the most loved Presidents, he was also known as the People's President. While in his 70s, he was nominated for the MTV Youth Icon of the Year award in 2003 and in 2006.

He was awarded the Padma Bhushan and Bharat Ratna for his achievements.

A person won over the hearts and minds of a nation with his warmth and a person always surrounded by knowledge who always inspired the Youth of the Nation!

Hope his soul rest in peace and his Dreams about India Come True!
