This is why the world has cried yesterday:
1) When he was The President of India, nearly 50 of his close relatives showed an eagerness to tour Delhi and surroundings. He welcomed all those relatives and made them stay at Rastrapathi Bhavan and hosted them warmly, showed all the tourist places.After they had left the Bhavan, he made the payments for the expenditure incurred by the relatives.
2. While his period of Presidential post got over, he just packed his clothes and a big trunk case. On questioned about its content, he opened that, which contained the books that he had bought out of his own salary.
He walked off, even without taking his used things at Rashtrapathi Bhavan.
3. He always put India First: Whether it was as a scientist or President, he was a patriot first. From reportedly advising Sonia Gandhi to not becoming prime minister in 2004 to fathering the Pokharan explosion, he always said what he felt was right. He was inspired by three of India’s greatest scientists – Dr Vikram Sarabhai, professor Satish Dhawan and Dr Brahm Prakash. He took only two holidays in his life, it is said – both for deaths, of his father and mother.
4. He was the youngest 83-year-old India has ever seen: Even when he died, it was while delivering a lecture to students at IIM Shillong on a liveable plant. As Meghalaya chief secretary PBO Warjiri said, he passed away in his element, while delivering a lecture to youngsters, on a subject he loved.
