One of Kalam's security servicemen, Srujan Pal, recolleted an incident, just a few hours before Kalam's death, when he was awe-struck. During his two-hour long road journey from Guwahati to Shillong, Srujan Pal stood beside the door of the moving car in the convoy. Noticing this Kalam told his assistant to ask him to sit. But Pal continued standing. Later, Kalam personally met Srujan Pal and enquired him if he was tired and asked him if he wanted to eat something. The awe-struck Pal replied that he would stand for Kalam even it is for six hours.
