Engineers' Day, when Indian’s remember Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya
Engineering is known as the skill of making new and useful things that can help the society in a positive manner. The creativity of an engineer can make small house look big, the bridges we cross, the computers we use, the transports in which load and unload goods are all inventions of engineers. We celebrate this day on 15th of September every year in order to identify the work done by great engineers. This day is celebrated as Engineers' Day. On this day people also remember Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya, he was the person who did a tremendous job in the field of hydro energy in India. Visvesvarayya also got Bharat Ratna from Government of India for his valuable work in the field of Engineering. He was also known as the pre-eminent engineer of India. With the emerging India, he was known as the first engineer who significantly contributed to the developing India after the independence when India was in great need of it. It is very surprising to know that he was also the Diwan of Mysore. Not only this, he was also the Knight Commander of the British Empire. So in India his birthday is celebrated to honor him.
