The former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam passed away at the age of 83 on 27 July 2015. His was a charm that one rarely encounters in public personalities. Kalam was known as the ‘People’s President‘ and his lasting contributions to the fields of science and education in this country only add to his unmatchable legacy. Kalam once said that a good leader is someone who has vision, passion and integrity. It’s fair to say that he of all people truly lived up to his own words.
