When the family came to meet Delhi
Once Kalam’s entire family came to Delhi to meet him. He was a total of more than 50 people, including his 90-year-old elder brother and his one-and-a-half great-grandson. Everyone was brought from the station to Rashtrapati Bhavan, where he stayed for 8 days. Kalam paid for a cup of tea, even from his arrival and eating and drinking, from his pocket. Not only this, Kalam also gave a clear instruction to his officer that cars of President House will not be used for these guests. The details of all the expenses of eating and drinking of relatives were kept separately.
Nothing but clothes and books
When Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was elected the President, preparations were made for his use with a lot of zeal, Rashtrapati Bhavan was beautifully decorated. All these preparations were made so that the goods of the new Sadr of the country could be kept properly. But very few people know that when Abdul Kalam reached there, he had arrived with only 2 suitcases. He had his clothes in a suitcase and his books in the others. And when he was sedentary for five years, then with these two suitcases. In his farewell program, he said a very beautiful jumla, saying, farewell, how is the country with me a billion people.
