Tens of thousands of people gathered in the southern Indian town of Rameswaram on Thursday for the burial of former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, known as the father of the country's missile program.
His body, carried in a glass topped hearse, was driven from his home in the tiny fishing town to the cemetery where he had wanted to be buried. Kalam, 83, died on Monday after collapsing during a lecture to a group of management students in northeast India's Shillong city.
