Delhi Govt gives the chance to revisit the life of APJ Kalam
New Delhi: Delhiites could revisit the life and moments of 'People President' APJ Abdul Kalam at Dilli Haat, as his cherished belongings such as his spectacles, rudra veena, books, footwear, some of his clothes and research papers will be displayed at the Kalam memorial which is likely to open from July 27.
- The AAP government had committed to set up a memorial dedicated to India's one of the most favorite Presidents, after the central government had decided to allot Kalam's 10, Rajaji Marg bungalow to Union Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma.
- Kapil Said," It's a dream come true for me. We had taken this decision (to erect a memorial) the day the BJP government wrongly allocated Kalam's bungalow. Anyone who knows even a little bit about Kalam's contribution to India will agree that his final residence should have been turned into a 'Knowledge Centre. Everyone is happy with our decision including Kalam's family."
- The designing of the memorial was given to Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development corporation.
- Two more memorials are upcoming dedicated to late president at his burial site in Pei Krumbu, Tamil Nadu, and the DRDO complex in New Delhi.
