As the family of former President APJ Abdul Kalam waits for the former's mortal remains to be brought to his home in Rameswaram, Kalam's elder brother Mohammed Muthu Meera Lebbai Maraicker said that his brother's loss was too great for him. This is a big loss for me. I don't know if I will be able to sleep. I will always have his thoughts with me," said the distraught brother.
Recounting his brother's selfless ways, Maraicker said that Kalam was the kind of man that never asked for anything for himself.
