Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam defied all easy definitions and predictions.
Born a potential fisherman he died one of the world’s mightiest technocrats.
In spite of being famous for his aggressive bombs and missiles he was a modern day Budha. His smile represented our country’s inner peace. Not its defenses.
The man who explored applied science’s frontiers was so down to earth, his words were all about attitude and work.
At 83, his old age was the intellectual rage of India’s young and vibrant.
Even his last words were to our nation’s young and brightest.
The man who unleashed the power of a thousand bombs was busy talking to youngsters How to Make Earth more livable when he died.
According to his own wishes the day of his death is to be a hard working day for our nation.
Just as we mourn his passing, we celebrate all that he stood for and lived for.
We are indebted to him for a life time of good name and intellectual fame.
No one in recent Indian history has reached out and touched India’s minds like he has.
We owe him a lot more than respect.
We owe him the ultimate debt.
Life long remembrance and love.
APJ lives in our hearts.
Hill Blooms loves you.
