The Lok Sabha, with Speaker Sumitra Mahajan in the chair, paid homage to former president APJ Abdul Kalam. He had served the nation exceptionally well as a scientist. Though he held high positions he lived the life of a common man, the Speaker said. The LS adjourned for two days and the RS for one day, in his honour. Silence was observed in both the Houses as a mark of respect.
