He was in the IIM at Shillong as the Chief Guest for a function and giving a talk when he had a massive heart attack and collapsed on stage.
A teacher par excellence, teaching till the very last breath.

I had the chance to meet him in Delhi a few times. Incredibly humble and soft spoken. May god bless his soul.

Remember meeting him 3 years ago at our M.D Convocation (RGUHS). What an incredible human being.

Sir you will continue to enlighten and inspire us.

May your soul rest in peace.

Post Dr APJ Abdul Kalaam is no more :(

One of the most loved and respected Indian president (former), Bharat Ratna, Padma Vibushan, Padma Bushan, Dr Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam is no more.

He suffered a massive cardiac arrest when delivering a lecture at IIM Shilong earlier today. An extra ordinary individual in all walks of life.

Its a sad news indeed! A real Indian Jewel lost :( He was such an inspiration!

One of his most inspirational quotes was "Dreams are not that you get during sleep, it's those that do not allow you to sleep"

He passed away doing what he loved doing -Teaching. Maybe if he could choose, he would've chosen this way to depart.

He will be missed!

We have lost an eminent scientist and a noble soul. My son was so fascinated by him that he even dreamt of meeting him one day.
RIP sir.

Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success
-A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

This greatly saddens me, I can say that he was one of the very few people in India to stay away from the light of controversy and be equally loved and respected by all fellow Indians. May god look after his soul.
