We write to you today with a heavy heart, as we bid a final good bye to a man who without doubt will forever be regarded as one the greatest individuals to grace mankind with his presence.
The outpouring of love for and grief on the passing of a legend who has now for over half a decade been away from any major position or seat of power has been an eye opener for a lot of us to the adoration this great soul enjoyed from every corner of the country and across every socio-economic strata of our society. For me personally and in my memory, I have observed the country as one, feel such a void last only at the loss of yet another great soul, Mother Teresa.
That death is an essential part of life is a fact that we all accept, and Dr. Kalam leaving us after a beautifully lived life at the age of 83 years would be a time of mourning only because we as human beings need such towers of greatness with us, in order to keep assuring ourselves that we have hope, and that there is someone out there who with his mere existence keeps alive our belief in all things good and noble. However, to be healthy and doing what you love most when you depart, and more importantly, having lead a life so resplendent with glory, so complete with character & conduct that represents every human virtue, this time above all must be seen as a time to celebrate the life of this Great Indian, this Great Human Being; and this celebration of this Great Soul is possible only by promising that we as Young Indians will ensure that he lives on in our actions and that his dreams are given the shape of reality.
Do this and we would have Honoured him in the finest manner possible, fail on this and.......well failure is just not an option now.
Friends, we have lost a legend, but Dr. Kalam has transcended those boundaries and is much more......he is an Immortal. It is now up to each and every one of us to prove that the gift we call Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam that our great nation and each one of us 1.2 Billion Indians has been bestowed with is celebrated, cherished, honoured, and kept alive every day by fulfilling his dream of building a Stronger, Greater and truly Developed India.
Thank You Sir for Inspiring us.....Now & Forever.
In grief, with resolve and above all with pride,
- Shaurya Veer Himatsingka & Raghu Kailas
