Remembering its 11th President APJ Abdul Kalam on his sixth death anniversary on July 27, Vice president M Venkaiah Naidu and several union ministers including Piyush Goyal, Hardeep Singh Puri paid tribute to him. Dr. Kalam is an exemplary role-model for many leaders around the country and worldwide.

Dr Abdul Kalam was born on October 15, 1931, in Tamil Nadu’s Rameswaram. He served as the 11th President of India between 2002 and 2007 and was popularly known as the ‘Missile Man of India’. Dr Kalam has inspired millions through his philosophy of ‘simple living and high thinking.’ 

People’s President Abdul Kalam was a great humanitarian and a visionary. He was intimately involved with India’s space program and was named the ‘Missile Man’ for his contributions towards the developments of India’s world-famous missile projects. Dr. Kalam played a crucial role in the 1998 Pokhran-II nuclear tests.

The Missile man was very popular among the kids. He often spoke to the country’s kids and youth and inspired them to think big in life. He has also penned several books like Vision for the new millennium, India 2020, Mission of India: A Vision of Indian Youth.

On 27 July 2015, he passed away due to a cardiac arrest while doing one of the things which he loved the most, delivering a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Shillong.

Rest in peace Dr. Kalam, you’re missed and your contributions to the country are remembered even today.
