સાભાર- શ્રી વિપુલ દેસાઈ ,સુરતી ઊંધિયું
સ્વપ્ન એ એવી ચીજ નથી કે જે તમે ઉંઘમાં જુઓ છો.
સ્વપ્ન એવી ચીજ છે જે તમને ઉંઘવા નથી દેતી.
– અબ્દુલ કલામ.
ડો.કલામની હ્રુદયમાં સામાન્ય નાના માણસો માટે પણ કેવી માનવતાની ભાવના , સહાનુભુતિ, અને દરકારની લાગણી હતી એ આ એમના મૃત્યુના થોડા કલાકો પહેલાંની જ પ્રેરક સત્ય ઘટના આપણને વિચારતા કરી મુકે એવી છે.
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the journey for Shillong started, and it was a 2.5 hours drive. Here’s what Shri Srijan Pal Singh, who would accompany Dr Kalam in his tours, writes:
After reaching Guwahati by flight, for Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the journey for Shillong started, and it was a 2.5 hours drive.
We were in a convoy of 6-7 cars. Dr. Kalam and I were in the second car. Ahead us was an open gypsy with three soldiers in it. Two of them were sitting on either side and one lean guy was standing atop, holding his gun. One hour into the road journey, Dr. Kalam said, “Why is he standing? He will get tired. This is like punishment. Can you ask a wireless message to given that he may sit?” I had to convince him, he has been probably instructed to keep standing for better security. He did not relent. We tried radio messaging, that did not work. For the next 1.5 hours of the journey, he reminded me thrice to see if I can hand signal him to sit down. Finally, realizing there is little we can do – he told me, “I want to meet him and thank him”. Later, when we landed in IIM Shillong, I went inquiring through security people and got hold of the standing guy. I took him inside and Dr. Kalam greeted him. He shook his hand, said thank you buddy. “Are you tired? Would you like something to eat? I am sorry you had to stand so long because of me”. The young lean guard, draped in black cloth, was surprised at the treatment. He lost words, just said, “Sir, aapke liye to 6 ghante bhi khade rahenge”.
