Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, popularly known as APJ Abdul Kalam breathed his last in Shillong yesterday. A secular Indian Muslim, he was known as the #MissileMan for his role in making India self reliant in Missile Technology.
As a tribute to #KalamSir, Kerala govt declares Sunday, 2nd August a working day. Befitting farewell! Hope Central Govt follows.

The whole nation is crying as well as is applauding a life lived with Grace and Greatness. These facts underline the reasons he was full of Grace and loved cutting across political, social, religious and age divisions.
The humility that APJ exibited till his last day was seeded since his childhood. He is someone who rose from being a #NewsPaperVendor to being the #President of a billion plus Indians. Isnt that Amazing.
APJ had a natural love for music and that too Indian classical music and he Played the Veena in his free time. No wonder he was ever blessed by Godess Saraswati!
The US intelligence was so incensed by the failure of its network to anticipate the 1998 nuclear tests by India masterminded by Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam, that they actually recalled and executed 3 of their agents working in Indian govt at that time.

Abdul Kalam should be thanked for giving life to Indians, who were stuck in quagmire of dirty politics. He restored honor to the office of President of India. He will be remembered for generations, to teach future generations about national pride, science.
