Rest in peace, Wings of Fire

Today is a sad day for India. India has lost the most beloved president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. Dr. Kalam a renowned scientist, who later became the president of India. His contribution in every field is well known. He was known as Missile Man of India. But, behind this, his views were clear. He don't wanted missile to attack neighboring countries, but, because it requires strength to stand up to another strength. His work as a part of DRDO and ISRO is commendable. His contribution towards the Pokharan nuclear test  is beyond the boundaries of a scientist.
In his form, probably for the first time, India got a president with acclaimed scientific background. He was never called a president of a party, but, in real sense was the president of India.
He was probably one of the few who actually deserved a Bharat Ratna.
Yesterday, even during his last few hours, he was involved in sharing his vast experience with the audience. At that time, he collapsed.
He was an inspiration to all and especially to scientists like us, who need a ray of hope to survive out of their day to day failures in scientific research. He was the one who actually brought President's position in limelight and made people believe that President's position in not just for show, but, it actually has some rights and say in decision making.
This is a big loss we all are suffering, which can never be filled. Even at the age of 83, we feel, it was too early for him to leave us. A person, we all needed to look up for inspiration.
