It is with a deep sense of loss that I have learnt of the sudden demise of H.E. President Abdul Kalam while doing what he loved to do best-imparting knowledge and sharing his life experience with the youth. President Kalam, with whom I had the privilege to interact during his visit to Mauritius a few years ago, was a beacon of inspiration to millions across India and the world. His tenure as President of the Republic of India brought in a new dimension and perspective on leadership at that level. There is no doubt that he will continue to inspire many a generation to come with the enlightened vision that he had of the world.
On behalf of the MMM and in my own name, I wish to convey to Your Excellency, the Government of India, the family of late President Kalam and all those afflicted by this great loss, our heartfelt condolences.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurance of my highest consideration.
Leader of the Opposition of Mauritius,
Leader of the MMM.
