Analysis by Merofact Awareness Team: 

This is a rumor surfaced around October 15, 2014 when Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam turned 83. Within a week, he too got concerned about the spread of this false message and tweeted about is well being. His message reads Som msg is bein circultd dat Im unwell & hospitalized!This is totally FALSE.Im bsy workin with severl commitmnts. Plz pay no heed2such rumor ". Next day OneIndia again confirmed the that "He is absolutely fine. He is at work".

Update July 27, 2015
We just got the saddest news that the  India's 11th President APJ Abdul Kalam passed away at a hospital in Shillong, Meghalaya today evening, he was 83. He was there to deliver a lecture on “Making the World More Livable”. He suffered a massive cardiac arrest (heart attack) during his lecture at the Indian Institute of Management, Shillong, around 6.30 pm. Promptly he was taken to the Bethany hospital. Bethany hospital sources told NDTV that, "President Kalam was brought to the hospital at 7 pm. When he brought in there was no sign of life. He was taken to ICU to try and revive him, which was futile,". Government declared 7 days of national mourning (Rashtriya shok) as a mark of respect for Dr. Kalam. During this period the national flag will fly at half mast on all places throughout India where it is flown regularly. Schools, colleges, other educational institutions and government institutions may decide to remain closed on this Tuesday.
