'Remembering Dr APJ Abdul Kalam' - President Pranab Mukherjee's photo tribute on Twitter

Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday posted few pictures of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam on his Twitter handle with a post which read as - 'Remembering former president of India, Bharat Ratna, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam'.

Watch the pics here:

The former president was laid to rest on Thursday with full state honours in his home town in Rameswaram  amid chants of "Bharat Mata ki jai".

The "People's President" was accorded full military honours, including gun salute and playing of the 'Last Post' as the members of his family and local Jamath lowered his mortal remains into a trench as slogans of "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" rent the air.

The funeral of the "Missile Man" was attended by a galaxy of leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi who placed a wreath, offered his final salute and stood in silence in front of Kalam's body that was draped in national flag. 

Earlier, a large number of teary-eyed mourners swarmed the carriage carrying his mortal remains and briskly moved with it on the last journey of the 83-year old scientist.
