New Delhi : As he drove into Shillong on the day he died, former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was worried that a soldier providing him security had to remain standing in an open jeep.
According to his advisor Srijan Pal Singh, Kalam expressed his concern for the soldier while driving from the airport to the Indian Institute of Management.
"Why is he standing? He will get tired. This is like punishment. Can you ask a wireless message to be given that he may sit?" Singh recounted Kalam as saying.
