Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, known as 'Missile Man of India' for his contributions towards the development of the country's missile projects was born on October 15, 1931, at Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu.

In 2002, Dr Kalam became the 11th President of India and famously became the "People's President" for his friendly nature to one and all.

In 2010, the United Nations decided to recognise October 15 as World Student Day. Dr Kalam was very dedicated towards teaching and he always referred to himself as a teacher first.

Dr Kalam suffered a cardiac arrest on July 27, 2015, and passed away. (ANI)
