It isn’t everyday that the youth regrets a holiday received due to the death of a former President. Abdul Kalam’s sudden death on July 27 shocked many people of the nation. Although Kalam is no more, his Twitter account will continue to be active in a new form. A team of his close associates has decided to run his official Twitter account which has now been renamed as In memoryof Dr.Kalam .

Srijan Pal Singh, a close associate of late Kalam, will be the administrator of his Twitter account and will keep sharing inspirational quotes from an innumerable number of speeches made by Kalam and his books like Wings of Fire , India 2020 and Ignited Minds. Another book, Advantage India , co-authored by Kalam and Singh, is due to release later the year. Since February 2011, Kalam had been regularly posting his views on contemporary issues facing the country besides sending out inspirational messages on Twitter.

Kalam had been active on Twitter since February 2011. He had posted many inspiring tweets, which was probably one of the reason he had 1.4 million followers.

Who knew that this will be his last tweet?

Farewell, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. Return If Possible (RIP).
