Eyecatchers-6: 'Varsity prepares to host Kalam' by D Suresh Kumar

I am an admirer of Indian President, Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam. He is a role-model many in the country now. Some interesting info from this article, with grateful thanks to Mr D Suresh Kumar:
Anna University is getting a room ready in its campus Guest House, which is likely to be APJ Abdul Kalam's home at Chennai, after he demits office as the People's President on July 25. Kalam has already informed that he would move into the room the same evening when his five-year term at Rashtrapati Bhavan ends. He has informed the VC that a single room would be sufficient for him as he is a single man.
Interestingly, Kalam had lived in the Guest House from November 2001 to May 2002 when he was Emeritus Professor of Societal and Technology Transformation. Kalam would go to bed at 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. and wake up at 6 a.m. to take a walk, waving to students and acknowledging their smile.
