Former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam collapses during a lecture at IIM Shillong. Reportedly brought dead to Bethany Hospital. Dr Kalam has been a guest faculty at IIM Shillong for the last couple of years! A life well led by example. A great, dedicated teacher until the very end! No salute will be enough for this great son of Mother India.
