15th September is celebrated as Engineer’s Day across India in honor of Dr.M.VISVESVARAYA.He was truly one of the Gem of India.
Visvesvaraya was a genius. The Block System which he invented, the automatic doors which he devised to stop wasteful overflow of water, the water supply and drainage system which he planned for the city of Aden – these won high praise from engineers all over the world. The Krishnarajasagara Dam is a brilliant proof of his genius.
We can make it special by taking a pledge by promoting Engineering and encouraging more and more Students to opt for Engineering.However I would also like to raise a point , that the focus should not be simply on increasing number fo Engineers in the country but it should be increasing quality Engineers in the country.
India produces close to 20 lakh engineers every year, with disciplines ranging from computer science and electronics to civil and mechanical engineering. And they all celebrate a special day of the year as their own in honour of the man who is considered one of the best engineers — if not outright the best engineer — that India has produced.
