On Monday, India lost one of its best men — our former President APJ Abdul Kalam — an individual collectively loved and cherished by the entire country. Our countrymen took to Twitter to remember the genius with a heart of gold who told all of us to follow our dreams.
Dr. Kalam…my mind is filled with so many memories, so many interactions with him. Always marvelled at his intellect, learnt so much from him

APJ Abdul Kalam gave us a glimpse of the fun, the easiness, the sheer coolness of having a President who is not a politician.

A great human being. A greater patriot. And yet a simple and unassuming man. One in tens of million. Abdul Kalam. The nation bows to him.

A humble genius who just believed in doing his work silently and not for the limelight. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
