SHILLONG, Aug 2 - Former President APJ Abdul Kalam had congratulated a constable for remaining alert throughout the day, minutes before he collapsed at the Indian Institute of Management and died here last Monday night.
�The former President congratulated an SOT (special operation team) personnel for being alert throughout the road trip from Guwahati to Shillong on Sunday,� East Khasi Hills SP M Kharkrang said.
He said the personnel at first got scared after Kalam summoned him. But then the VVIP acknowledged the constable for doing his duty properly.
Mourning the loss, Kharkrang said, �What makes him truly great is his acknowledgement of the simple things in life done rightly.� � PTI
