You will be missed sir – en era of academic brilliance ends with your sad demise

My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.” - Dr APJ Abdul Kalam 

You will be missed sir – en era of academic brilliance ends with your sad demise

In this world of glamour, overhyped publicity and larger than life stature that people maintain, you remained aloof and untouched with this make-believe world. Where people with fake smile and below average talent rose to become ‘celebrity’, you with your supercomputer brains and knowledge bank became our much loved ‘President’.

There is not one person in India and abroad who would not have wept after hearing your demise. Dr

APJ Abdul Kalam you will continue to be our shining star and blazing sunshine. You have indeed left an indelible mark in the lives of millions of people across the world. A man so simple, modest and ever smiling, Kalam sir those of whom had the privilege of meeting you are lucky souls. In some way your aura might have rubbed on them too.

Your intellect, humility and calm demeanor don’t just inspire but motivate us to strive to become like you. The unconditional love and respect you held for education has been highlighted in all your speeches and interviews. In the time that you spent on earth you might not have spent one second in despair or anguish. Each second you sowed the seed of positivity, enthusiasm and encouragement in the young minds of the nation.

The world owes you a lot. It is not just the contribution you have made to the world of science and technology that makes each of indebted. But the gift and gumption that you have given to each of us - to dream, to ignite the power within and to dare to work towards attainting higher goals.

I wish we all can imbibe even one percent of what you were. I wish we burn the lamp within us and work towards enlightening the world with your thoughts and belief. I wish we worship you and offer our efforts in helping to build India 2020.

May our souls reverberate to your tunes and teachings.....

We love you and will keep doing so......
