A large number of children from various schools in Gulbarga, Yadgir and neighbouring districts participated in the third edition of the Bharat Vikas Sangam “Kalburgi Kampu” on Saturday to have a glimpse of former President A P J Abdul Kalam and hear him and if possible pose a question to him.
They came in chartered buses, school buses, NEKRTC buses, autorickshaws and other public transport and made a beeline to the venue to be in forefront of the sprawling pandal that had been set up to accommodate about 30,000 people.
Even before Dr. Kalam's arrival, the venue was jam-packed and many students and teachers occupied the open places, braving the sun, to listen to his speech.
On his arrival, Dr. Kalam broke through the security cordon and briskly walked towards the cheering and waving students seated in the front rows and shook hands with them before proceeding towards the dais. Dr. Kalam paid floral tributes to the portrait of educationist Madan Mohan Malaviya to mark his 150th birth anniversary.
The entire proceedings were lively, even as Dr. Kalam struck the right chord from the beginning of his 60-minute address and kept the audience attentive and responsive, with various anecdotes.
Dr. Kalam, soon after his speech, said he would answer only five questions from students because of shortage of time. Dr. Kalam pulled up the volunteers when they tried to prevent them from asking questions and said, “There should be no censor on questions of students.”
