Condolence statement on the demise of Bharat Ratna Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Former President, Republic of India.

Nalanda University has received the news of Dr. A.P.J. Kalam’s passing away with great sadness, and we pay our tribute to this great human being. Nalanda has been fortunate in getting his unwavering support in re-establishing this ancient university. He interacted with the Nalanda Mentor Group in the formative years and offered his constructive suggestions to the former Chancellor, Professor Amartya Sen and the Vice Chancellor, Dr. Gopa Sabharwal on a number of important academic issues, including the need for focusing on research, which – Dr. Kalam pointed out – is often neglected even by otherwise highly successful academic institutions in India. He also offered to visit and lecture at new Nalanda in the near future, which alas will now no longer happen (a big loss to us). In the death of Dr. Kalam we not only lose a great man with a powerful vision, but also a warm and steady friend whose support has been a strong source of strength for the newly revived historic university.
