Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the legend, the scholar, the visionary, the Missile Man of India left us all mourning on 27th July, 2015 due to a massive cardiac arrest. He took his last breathe during a speech he was giving to the students of IIM Shillong, doing what he truly liked which is spreading his wisdom and knowledge with the world, motivating us all. The Bharat’s Ratna will be sincerely missed by us all.
When the world was organizing and preparing for the memorial service of Dr Kalam, we got to meet the family of this amazing person. He was buried in Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu where his family resides. His elder brother Mohammed Muthu Meera Lebbai Maraicker who is 99 years old, stays in Tamil Nadu and runs an umbrella repairing shop tells us how simple and genuine was Dr Kalam. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi along with some Union Ministers and Rahul Gandhi attended the funeral and met the family members. It was a honorable moment for all of them to meet the family and pay the last respects to Dr Kalam together.
Narendra Modi touched his feet paying respect to the older brother of the legend. For this ,we genuinely pay our respect to our Prime Minister.
Check the video of the grief-stricken memorial of our immortal Missile Man, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
