July 27, 2015 was a sorrowful day as India mourned the loss of a great scientist, a wonderful President, a dedicated teacher and an inspiring individual. India shed tears of deep grief when its former President APJ Abdul Kalam passed away. Abdul Kalam was a man beyond compare. He trod the path chalked out by his conscience. Numerous tributes were made across the nation and across social media. As a mark of respect, 7 days of state mourning was declared. Dr. Abdul Kalam took India to great heights and showed others the way. He was a humanitarian, who always saw the downtrodden and poor as his priority.
