Excerpts from the letter: What I will be remembered for. my memory of the last day with the great Kalam sir… It has been eight hours since we last talked – sleep eludes me and memories keep flushing down sometimes as tears Our day 27th July began at 12 noon when we took our seats in the flight to Guhawati Dr Kalam was 1A and I was IC He was wearing a dark colored “Kalam suit” and I started off complimenting “Nice color” Little did I know this was going to be the last color I will see on him Watch Video: Narendra Modi pays tribute to APJ Abdul Kalam (To watch video App users click here) Long 25 hours of flying in the monsoon weather I hate turbulence and he had mastered over them Whenever he would see me go cold in shaking plane he would just pull down the window pane and say “Now you don’t see any fear” Share This Article Related Article That was followed by another 25 hours of car drive to IIM Shillong For these two legged trip of five hours we talked discussed and debated These were amongst hundreds of the long flights and longer drives we have been together over the last six years As each of them this was as special too Three incidents/discussions in particular will be “lasting memories of our last trip” ALSO READ:From humble origins to ‘People’s President’: Tracking the life of APJ Abdul Kalam First Dr Kalam was absolutely worried about the attacks in Punjab The loss of innocent lives left him filled with sorrow The topic of lecture at IIM Shillong was Creating a Livable Planet Earth He related the incident to the topic and said “it seems the man made forces are as big a threat to the livability of earth as pollution” We discussed on how if this trend of violence pollution and reckless human action continues we will forced to leave earth “Thirty years at this rate maybe” he said “You guys must do something about it… it is going to be your future world” APJ Abdul Kalam’s ten inspiring quotes Our second discussion was more national For the past two days Dr Kalam was worried that time and again Parliament the supreme institution of democracy was dysfunctional He said “I have seen two different governments in my tenure I have seen more after that This disruption just keeps happening It is not right I really need to find out a way to ensure that the parliament works on developmental politics” He then asked me to prepare a surprise assignment question for the students at IIM Shillong which he would give them only at the end of the lecture He wanted to them to suggest three innovative ways to make the Parliament more productive and vibrant Then after a while he returned on it “But how can ask them to give solutions if I don’t have any myself” For the next one hour we thwarted options after options who come up with his recommendation over the issue We wanted to include this discussion in our upcoming book Advantage India Third was an experience from the beauty of his humility We were in a convoy of 6-7 cars Dr Kalam and I were in the second car Ahead us was an open gypsy with three soldiers in it Two of them were sitting on either side and one lean guy was standing atop holding his gun One hour into the road journey Dr Kalam said “Why is he standing He will get tired This is like punishment Can you ask a wireless message to given that he may sit” I had to convince him he has been probably instructed to keep standing for better security He did not relent We tried radio messaging that did not work For the next 15 hours of the journey he reminded me thrice to see if I can hand signal him to sit down Finally realizing there is little we can do – he told me “I want to meet him and thank him” Later when we landed in IIM Shillong I went inquiring through security people and got hold of the standing guy I took him inside and Dr Kalam greeted him He shook his hand said thank you buddy “Are you tired Would you like something to eat I am sorry you had to stand so long because of me” The young lean guard draped in black cloth was surprised at the treatment He lost words just said “Sir aapke liye to 6 ghante bhi khade rahenge” After this we went to the lecture hall He did not want to be late for the lecture “Students should never be made to wait” he always said I quickly set up his mike briefed on final lecture and took position on the computers As I pinned his mike he smiled and said “Funny guy Are you doing well” ‘Funny guy’ when said by Kalam could mean a variety of things depending on the tone and your own assessment It could mean you have done well you have messed up something you should listen to him or just that you have been plain nave or he was just being jovial Over six years I had learnt to interpret Funny Guy like the back of my palm This time it was the last case “Funny guy Are you doing well” he said I smiled back “Yes” Those were the last words he said Two minutes into the speech sitting behind him I heard a long pause after completing one sentence I looked at him he fell down We picked him up As the doctor rushed we tried whatever we could I will never forget the look in his three-quarter closed eyes and I held his head with one hand and tried reviving with whatever I could His hands clenched curled onto my finger There was stillness on his face and those wise eyes were motionlessly radiating wisdom He never said a word He did not show pain only purpose was visible In five minutes we were in the nearest hospital In another few minutes the they indicated the missile man had flown away forever I touched his feet one last time Adieu old friend Grand mentor See you in my thoughts and meet in the next birth As turned back a closet of thoughts opened Often he would ask me “You are young decide what will like to be remembered for” I kept thinking of new impressive answers till one day I gave up and resorted to tit-for-tat I asked him back “First you tell me what will you like to be remembered for President Scientist Writer Missile man India 2020 Target 3 billion… What” I thought I had made the question easier by giving options but he sprang on me a surprise “Teacher” he said Then something he said two weeks back when we were discussing about his missile time friends He said “Children need to take care of their parents It is sad that sometimes this is not happening” He paused and said “Two things Elders must also do Never leave wealth at your deathbed – that leaves a fighting family Second one is blessed is one can die working standing tall without any long drawn ailing Goodbyes should be short really short” Today I look back – he took the final journey teaching what he always wanted to be remembered doing And till his final moment he was standing working and lecturing He left us as a great teacher standing tall He leaves the world with nothing accumulated in his account but loads of wishes and love of people He was a successful even in his end Will miss all the lunches and dinners we had together will miss all the times you surprised me with your humility and startled me with your curiosity will miss the lessons of life you taught in action and words will miss our struggles to race to make into flights our trips our long debates You gave me dreams you showed me dreams need to be impossible for anything else is a compromise to my own ability The man is gone the mission lives on Long live Kalam Your indebted student
