15th September is a big day for the engineering community in India. The day is celebrated as Engineers Day every year as a tribute to the remarkable Indian Engineer Bharat Ratna Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya.
Popularly known as Sir MV, he is held in high regard as a pre-eminent engineer of India. He was the chief designer of the flood protection system for the city of Hyderabad, as well as the chief engineer responsible for the construction of the Krishna Raja Sagara dam in Mysore.
Engineering is still a prestigious field in the country; almost every parent dreams for his son/daughter to be an engineer. Last year it was reported that India produced a million plus engineering students. My mother also dreamed of the same with my brother but engineering is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Like all other days, #EngineersDay has been trending from the first half of the day. The hashtag found support from quite a few politicians including our Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
