Abdul Kalam with Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2003. — PTI The People’s President, as Dr A.P.J.

Though the nation will mourn his passing away, wherever he may be, the former scientist and innovator must surely be a contented man, having seen the country treading the ...

Journey from Rameswaram to Raisina Hill 27.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Dr Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, the 11th President of India, made his mark as the "People's President." Apolitical to the core, Kalam uniquely endeared himself to the youth, particularly students, with his almost evangelical-type appeal to strive for creativity, righteousness and courage. That Kalam's last public engagement was on Monday evening with the students of IIM-Shillong, is a telling tribute to the man who believed till his last breath that his mission was to inspire the youth. During his term from 2002 to 2007, the Rashtrapati Bhavan was a more meeting ground for children and people from all walks than ever before. They could never forget their encounter with silver-haired Kalam, who was the first scientist and first ever bachelor to occupy the high office. His first and last word to the youth of India was always this: "My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible ...

Book Review: Sikkim- Requiem for a Himalayan Kingdom 27.6.2015 DNA: Opinion
Book: Sikkim- Requiem for a Himalayan Kingdom Author: Andrew Duff Pages: 320 Rs: 599 In 1975, when Indira Gandhi was going from strength to strength, having flexed muscles in the 1971 Bangladesh war and conducted a nuclear test in 1974, she decided to annex the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim. She was concerned that Sikkim may show tendencies of wanting independence and become a United Nations (UN) member as Bhutan had done in 1971. She was also concerned that the three Himalayan kingdoms – Bhutan, Sikkim and Nepal – were cosying up to each other. The last king or 'Chogyal' of Sikkim, Palden Thondup Namgyal, had attended King Birendra's coronation in Kathmandu in 1975. On the morning of April 6, 1975, the roar of army trucks climbing the steep streets of Gangtok woke up the king. The 5,000-strong Indian force didn't take more than 30 minutes to subdue the palace guards, and Sikkim ceased to exist as an independent kingdom. Andrew Duff's Sikkim: Requiem For a Himalayan Kingdom tells the story of Sikkim's ...
