THE END OF AN ERA

God's providence is your only inheritance. 

Small aim is a crime.

If you want to shine like the sun, first you must burn like it.


These are some of  the thoughts of perhaps the greatest visionary of our generation.  The man who inspired millions transcending all barriers that exist, who encouraged us to embark on our dream journey has finished his own.


This post is a tribute to  India’s Missile Man, People's President, Bharat Ratna......the epithets will never end. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was a person par excellence with his vision of India 2020 and an uncanny ability to inspire every single soul he interacted with. Here is my message for him.


Sir,
You made us feel empowered with your enthusiasm.  Your vision of Developed India by 2020 and your tireless efforts to work towards it showed us what passion really means.


As a scientist, you were the face behind India’s missile program.
As a teacher,  you taught us how to think, not what to think.
As a writer, you shared your own story for us to learn from.
As a politician, you taught us to engage in developmental politics rather than political politics. You became the most accessible President till date.
As a human, you set the example of simple living high thinking.

Every profession you touched.......you became the face of it.


Today, the nation really mourns your demise.  Perhaps there was no better way to leave the world like you did. It is a way of telling that even death bowed to a person like you.


 
You will be fondly remembered.

May your soul rest in peace.


Sincerely Yours,
The Youth of India.
