Engineers' Day In India Being Celebrated On September 15 - We Are Proud Engineers!

Every year, India celebrates Engineers Day on September 15th to commemorate the birthday of the legendary engineer, Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya (1861-1962). Not just some other hard-core engineer, he was a true scholar and his phenomenal work is responsible for this day's celebrations. He successfully completed some of the greatest engineering feats. He was a recipient of the Indian Republic's highest honour, the Bharat Ratna, in 1955 and was knighted as a Commander of the British Indian Empire by King George V for his myriad contributions to the public good. 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.

The list doesn't end there - Among his most successful projects are the design and construction of the K.R. Sagar dam and its adjoining Brindavan Gardens, turn-around of the Bhadravati Iron and Steel Works, setting up of the Mysore Sandalwood Oil Factory and the founding of the Bank of Mysore.

Engineering colleges and schools across India will celebrate 'Engineers' Day' today with great spirit and honor. We at CE, celebrate the engineers' day every year too. So today, we salute the passion for engineering among all the young hearts and younger brains and wish each one of you a very Happy Engineers' Day!

Keep being Crazy, Keep being a CEan!

    I feel that the way to celebrate the day would be to do some actual hands on engineering activity.

    One of the bathroom exhaust fans had collected a lot of debris from various repair work that went for a few months previous. It was gamely struggling on. I have been postponing tackling this.

    Today I dismantled the unit, cleaned up the whole works, lubricated it, reassembled, and tested that all was well.

    Now sitting with what I consider a deserved cup of coffee and putting up this post.
