Some More of our beloved President
With the death of the missile man, India has lost an era of wisdom and greatness. I would like to share two incidents which says how great the legend was.
1.When Abdul Kalam was The President , around 50 of his close relatives visited Delhi and surroundings. He welcomed them all and asked them to stay at Rastrapathi Bhavan with warmness, and further showed all the tourist places.
After they had left the Rastrapathi Bhavan, he made the payments for the expenditure incurred by the relatives.
2. While his period of Presidential post expired, he just packed his clothes and a large trunk case. One of the person asked surprised and asked him what was inside, he opened that to show that it contained the books that he had bought out of his own salary.
He walked off from Rashtrapathi Bhavan leaving all his personal belongings there.
