Huge loss to all Non-Residents. One of the best External Affairs Minister a non-resident Indian can ever dream for. Several times a tweet to her office helped resolve urgent issues and made mission impossible possible!. May her departed soul rest in peace. Photo taken during her visit on 4th December 2018 to address Indian Community in the UAE. She was so courteous enough to allow each and everyone of the attendees, till the last lane to be photographed with her. Tearful pranams #SushmaSwaraj.IMG-20181204-WA0137

Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

My humble pranams to the departed soul of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, a noble soul and a personality that can never be replaced. This was a photo taken while my trip to Rameshwaram in October 2012. It shows how ordinary people value him and his contribution to the nation. It was the first time, I saw an ad of this kind.
