People paid tribute to APJ Abdul Kalam, India’s Missle Man, on Saturday, on his fourth death anniversary. Kalam had passed away on this day four years ago after suffering a cardiac arrest while delivering a speech at the Indian Institue of Management (IIM), Shillong.
Kalam, an aerospace scientist, served as the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007 and was widely referred to as the people’s president. He is credited for India’s civilian space programme and military missile systems. Kalam played a pivotal role in the Pokhran-II nuclear tests in 1998.
His contribution to the field of aeronautics earned him the title ‘Missile Man of India.’
Four years on, the nation fondly remembers Dr Kalam, who continues to inspire people of all ages.
Some voids are never filled…miss you Sir..!
