    Papers are replete with photographs of national leaders paying their last respects to former President APJ Abdul Kalam, whose mortal remains were laid to rest with full military honors at a special graveyard in Rameshwaram yesterday. The Pioneer adds “ PM leads mourners to bid Kalam last adieu”.
    Yesterday’s hanging of the 1993 Mumbai blasts convict - Yakub Memon - is highlighted by the Press.  The Hindu writes - Yakub Memon, the brother of Tiger Memon who 'masterminded' the Mumbai blasts, was hanged on his birthday in the Nagpur Central Prison at 7 am. "Yakub gets quiet burial after losing his last battle at 4:30 am, headlines Hindustan Times", while the Asian Age writes "In a first, Supreme Court hearing is held post-midnight."
    In the Rajya Sabha, "Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh confirms that Gurdaspur attackers came from Pakistan,” reports The Tribune. The paper adds that the terrorists aim was to have attacked the families of police personnel by storming the Civil Lines area in Gurdaspur.
    Hindustan Times writes “India Pakistan NSAs on course for talks”. The government is busy firming up the agenda for talks between the Nationwide Security Advisors of the two countries on August 23 & 24, after this weeks deadly attack in Punjab.
    And finally, The Times of India tells us that the Indian Airforce recently put one of its special aircraft for a unique operation - transporting a kidney and a liver from Pune to Delhi to save the lives of two critically ill patients - both of whom are doing well, post surgery.
