Nations mourns the passing away of Dr APJ

This simple looking building is justifiably proud – for it was here the great person, eternally simple, Dr APJ studied at Rameswaram.




Every one of us would  rever ‘Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam’ for his many facets of a   a renowned aerospace engineer, Professor, Chancellor, President of India, man with a noble mind, clean habits, straight talks, his love to children, his inspirational writings and more.  By awarding Bharat Ratna to him, the Nation  rejoiced.   

He was a certain role model to every Indian citizen and his words have been  so inspirational.  He once said about teaching : -  “  To enable development of youth first and foremost, the teacher’s love for teaching is essential, with teaching as the soul of the teacher. The teacher must realize that they are responsible for shaping not just students but ignited youth who are the most powerful resource under the earth, on the earth and above the earth. ………. Teacher should celebrate the success of the students”


Sad to read that our former President APJ Abdul Kalam is no more.  Today, he passed away  at a hospital in Meghalaya, where he had gone to deliver a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management in Shillong. He was 83.  He died doing what he loved most – teaching - Dr Kalam reportedly collapsed on stage at the IIM at around 6.30 pm  and was rushed to the Bethany hospital. Doctors say he suffered from a massive cardiac arrest.

Dr Kalam was  the 11th President on India between 2002 and 2007.  He hailed from the beautiful holy island of Rameswaram- born  on October 15, 1931, to the family of a boatman.  He played a pivotal role in India's Pokhran-II nuclear test in 1998, the first since the test by India in 1974.

The Nation is saddened by the death of the missile man – he was rightly awarded Bharat Ratna.  In his passing away, the Nation has a lost a great jewel


With profound sadness
