Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, the People's Presiden, passed away on the 27th of July 2015. He was laid to rest with full State Honours, at his hometown Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu.
Dr. Kalam was truly a dynamic and multi-faceted personality, who possessed genuine skill with the 'kalam' (pen). He was a writer par excellence with several books, papers and poems to his credit. He was also known as "Missile Man of India". It was under his leadership that India's defensive capabilities nurtured and matured. In his lifetime, Dr. Kalam was honoured with well-earned prestigious awards including the Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan and India's highest civilian honour, Bharat Ratna.
FEI Group and SNF foundation decided to honour him with a dedicated issue of FEI Duniya ('FEI Groups In-House Magazine) & a calender for the year 2016.
