A sea of humanity, especially school and college students, have thronged to catch a last glimpse of former President A P J Abdul Kalam before his last rites tomorrow. The body of the ‘missile man’ is expected to arrive here this afternoon and his remains will be buried at Pakarambu near Mandapam, about 12 km from Rameswaram. Recalling his humble beginnings and his rise to the country’s highest office of President, many among the crowd remembered how he had inspired them to dream big and strive to achieve it. “The positive attitude of former president Kalam and his words of encouragement after a setback in my college studies spurred me to have a positive outlook in life and pursue higher studies,” said Deepak, who now works for an IT firm in Chennai. People also recalled his efforts in bringing broad gauge train services upto Rameswaram, his work for afforestation and for providing solar power to remote areas. Others remembered how he had advised them to pursue science in school and college and do their bit for the scientific development of the nation.
