Rameswaram: Former President APJ
Abdul Kalam on Monday went around a museum established at his
residence here and viewed various awards and accolades he had
won as a scientist, besides documents and his work as first
citizen of the country.
"I was happy to go around the museum which has been set up
during my lifetime... something which is very rare," he told
reporters after the visit.
Kalam said the museum was the initiative of Dr Shivathanu
Pillai, Director of Brahmos and said it was set up in such a
way as to attract tourists from all over the world.
He said he was impressed with a photograph of a fighter
plane in which he was seated and remarked that it was his
childhood dream to fly in a fighter plane.
The museum also has photographs of Kalam`s childhood,
contributed by his family members.
The former President also spent some time with his brother
Muthu Meeran Marakier and niece Joharammal.
