SHILLONG, Oct 14 - IIM-Shillong will on Monday host the screening of a National Geographic film on former president APJ Abdul Kalam, on the occasion of his 87th birth anniversary, officials said here Sunday.
Kalam passed away minutes after delivering a lecture at the institute in July 2015. The authorities launched a Centre for Policy Research the same year in his honour.
The National Geographic film, which is part of the channel�s ongoing series �Mega Icons�, narrates significant events from the life of India�s �Missile Man� and gives a �scientific breakdown� of how these events turned him into a revered leader, the institute said in a statement here.
�The documentary also reveals many lesser-known facts, not just through intimate interviews with his close ones, but also through the voice of the former president,� it said. � PTI
