Abdul Kalam left a rich legacy

Abdul Kalam left a rich legacy

Your editorial A humble man with big ideas (July 29) was poignant. With the death of Dr Abdul Kalam, India has not just lost a great scientist, but a great human being.

Two major incidents made this week particularly tragic for the country, as there was also a terrorist attack in Punjab.

Dr Abdul Kalam was a visionary, as he devoted his time to nurture young talent. He realised that the young generation is the backbone of the nation. He was also kind and compassionate. Dr Abdul Kalam strongly advocated an action plan to develop India into a “knowledge superpower”. His rich legacy will keep his memory alive. His books, particularly Wings of Fire and Ignited Minds, will carry his thoughts and ideas to millions of people. May his soul rest in peace.

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.
