Schools remain open today, one community pays tribute to Kalam

MT KALAM TRIBUT 1Many schools in the Mylapore area continued with their standard schedules despite a buzz that schools could be closed as a mark of respect to Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, former India president who passed away yesterday.

At Lady Sivaswamy Ayyar Girls He Secondary School in Mylapore, at Assembly time this morning the students said a prayer and remained silent for a few moments as a tribute to Kalam. The students made a chart with a legend written on it and held candles to his portrait.
