A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who rose from humble beginnings to become one of India's leading scientists and later a hugely popular president, died here on Monday evening after collapsing during a lecture at the IIM-Shillong, plunging the entire country in mourning.

Kalam, who occupied Rashtrapati Bhavan in 2002-07, breathed his last at 7.45 p.m. at the Bethany Hospital where he was rushed to from the IIM where he was delivering a lecture on "liveable planet", officials at the premier institute told IANS.

GHHF & pray, may his soul Rest In Peace.
