Kalam was born on 15 October 1931 to a Tamil Muslim family at Rameswaram, T.N. His father Jainulabudeen was a boat owner and imam of a local mosque; his mother Ashiamma was a housewife.Kalam was the youngest of four brothers and one sister in his family.
(1) At first glance it seems a non Muslim family; remember his father was an Imam!
(2) In 2015 Kalam's elder brother was 99 years old; that is to say he was born in 1916. When Kalam was born on 15 October 1931, his elder brother had already 15 years. Since Kalam is the youngest of his brothers, his sister too must have more than 15 years! None of the three children seem to have 15 years!
(3) He was the youngest of 5 children, and two of them are missing ? (4) Sandals, dress are obviously more modern than 1930's! (5) Were there those type of folding metal chairs in the 30's!?
The above Kalam's childhood family photo is FAKE! Then who else are in the photo!? There is one Mr. Maryala Srinivas from Hyderabad claims this as his family photo and they are published on his blog and his Facebook timeline. The small child, which is called Kalam, is his younger brother Sridhar Maryala.
