I still remember how the people of Ambur were delighted in welcoming him at Ambur and listening to his lecture and interaction with the students which were full of honest and inspiring advice. He felt at home in the midst of the people there and wished them well.
At that time Mr. Chand Basha was the Headmaster of the Mazharul Uloom Higher Secondary School. This is one of the six institutions established and managed by the Ambur Muslim Educational Society including a full fledged Science and Arts College. He was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Abdul Kalam called him to the dais and handed over some books for the school. All this shows the intense interest he had in the spread of education and knowledge. He strongly believed that it is education which can change ones destiny for better and make our country a progressive and prosperous one.
