Kalam Sir, thank you!

A boy wanted to become a pilot of a warrior flight. He stood ninth in the selection trials where only the first eight were eligible. He then settled as a scientist. With his dedication, he became a scientist a nation loved, young generation admired, and colleagues cherished. His saga continued. He became the president of the nation, the first citizen of the country, the president the nation loved. He was the first president to had travelled in "Sukhoi" war craft and hence lived his childhood dream of becoming a pilot of a warrior craft. He dedicated his whole life for teaching, sometimes colleagues and sometimes students. Always wanted to die while giving a lecture and actually died while giving a lecture. 

He is none other than our very beloved president, I mean the former President of India, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the holder of forty doctorates given by various universities across the globe. 

That's a great loss to India and mankind. Saying thanks is not sufficient but it's required. Not sure when will I get a chance again to thank such a person, such an Indian, and such a Bharat Ratna.

Thank you Kalam Sir for inspiring us.

Such a great man is born rarely and we are fortunate to have had him among us.The best way to pay homage to him is by cherishing the values he stood for.
