Dr. Kalam, the man who breathed his last while delivering his lecture at IIM-Shillong, is going to be paid tribute by 6 chief ministers and the prime minister himself at his funeral in Rameshwaram! For all, Dr. Kalam is only a former president. This, I believe, shows how much Dr. Kalam has set himself distinct from other presidents and has lived a life of honor, a life of inspiration - all beyond politics, yet within the political system! Salute! The tributes paid to him by the citizens of India - yes, they would, for the inspiration and relentless work he did for their upliftment. But pucca politicians   paying tribute - I think that is something to say about the life he lived during his tenure!  

A History for the Future

How common is it to come across someone who has deeply thought about the issues of his motherland? Among them how many came up with a deeply thought solution to address the issues and had a vision and action plan for it? One man did. Dr. Abdul Kalam. He rightly believed that tomorrow's India lay in the hands of the younger Indians. He made the best use of his tenure and the post-tenure period of his presidentship to inspire millions of students. He may be no more, but he lives in the hearts of younger India. What more fuller way to have lived life? Salute to one of the greatest minds and a true citizen! He will be a history to learn from and be inspired from for the future!
