Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India, and the far-sighted builder of India’s space and missile program, passed away in Shillong on Monday. The Government of India had bestowed on him the Bharat Ratna in recognition of his contribution to India’s space and missile program and building the scientific temperament in the country.

Dr. Kalam was a rocket scientist and served as president of India (2002-2007) and created a roadmap for India called Vision2020 to see India as a developed nation by the year 2020.

He worked relentlessly with a focus to Provide Urban Amenities in Rural Areas (PURA) to develop the nation holistically and reduce the migration of rural population to urban areas. Dr. Kalam selflessly worked for the development of the country by inspiring millions of children and youth by travelling extensively even after his tenure as president of India. In the same mission, he today attended the Indian Institute Management IIM- Shillong – India. It is really unfortunate we lost him all of a sudden while addressing the gathering on the topic of “Livable Planet” due to a massive cardiac arrest.
