Remember his passionate plea to teachers that they should henceforth start teaching their students? Which was followed by some astounding advice to students that they must, with immediate effect, resolve, to learn from their teachers? Or the time he delivered that sensational sermon to scientists to carry out research in their laboratories?
Do you recall his earnest exhortation to the Army to stay alert, keep to the ground and guard our borders; the stunning suggestion to the Air Force to make sure that the planes stayed up in the air when they were flying and the fantastic funda to the Navy to ensure that the submarines remained underwater, especially when at sea?
Now he has done it again. At Coonoor, at the Wellington Hospital, after calling on the ailing Field Marshal Manekshaw, the President met the doctors attending on the Field Marshal and solemnly suggested that they should take good care of this great son of India, as he was not well.
The doctors and the Field Marshal are still in a shocked state, after this visit.
P.S : There is an email campaign that seeks re-election of Mr Kalam for a second term as President. Those of you supporting the noble cause may respond to that mail.
