A Very Happy 44th Engineers Day!!!
A very Happy Engineers Day to all the FaaDoO Engineers!
September 15 is celebrated every year in the country as ďEngineersí DayĒ to commemorate the birthday of the legendary engineer Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. Sir Visvesvaraya, an eminent Indian engineer and statesman was born in a remote village of Karnataka, the State that is incidentally now the Hi-tech State of the country.
Due to his outstanding contribution to the society, Government of India conferred ďBharat RatnaĒ on this legend in the year 1955. He was also called the precursor of economic planning in India. His learned discourse on economic planning in India, Planned Economy for India and Reconstructing India, was the first available document on the planning effort of the country and it is still held as the parent source matter for economic planners...
A small poem that sums up Engineers & Engineering in the best way possible...
I take the vision which comes from dreams
and apply the magic of science and mathematics,
adding the heritage of my profession
and my knowledge of nature's materials
to create a design.
I organize the efforts and skills of my fellow workers
employing the capital of the thrifty
and the products of many industries,
and together we work toward our goal
undaunted by hazards and obstacles.
And when we have completed our task
all can see
that the dreams and plans have materialized
for the comfort and welfare of all.
I am an Engineer
I serve mankind
by making dreams come true.
Once again...A VERY HAPPY ENGINEERS DAY TO EVERYONE!
