Engineer’s Day greetings
Guwahati: Realizing that each individual has an inherent engineering
mind irrespective of their adopted professions, All Assam Engineer’s
Association (AAEA) greets everyone on the auspicious occasion of
Engineer’s Day, which is celebrated on 15 September in India.
The forum of graduate engineers wishes a productive life for every
professional engineer across the country, even after their retirements
from professional work.
The auspicious day marks the birth anniversary of India’s finest civil
engineer Mokshagundam Vishweshvaraya, who was honoured with Bharat
Ratna in 1955. Born on 15 September 1861 at Muddenahalli village in
Karnataka, Vishweshvaraya completed his graduation in civil
engineering from Pune Science College. As an honour to his great
achievement and contributions to the field of engineering and
education, the government decided to observe Vishweshvaraya’s birthday
as Engineer’s Day.
Engineers are considered as the backbone of every nation. India
continues to produce more than 1.5 million engineers every year from
its over 4000 institutes and it is one of the largest producers of
professional engineers across the world. Indian engineers are always
welcomed in various countries for their meticulous thought process and
skills to solve various problems. Millions of aspiring students appear
in entrance examinations every year for getting admissions to favoured
engineering colleges & universities in India, where the students are
offered several streams of engineering like civil, mechanical,
electrical, aeronautical, chemical, environmental, electronics,
computer science, etc.
“Once engineers were projected only as corrupt professionals in
various Indian literary works and movies, the people now start
recognising the contributions of engineers. The annual celebration
helps the engineers to reorganize their commitment for innovative
contributions to the nation,” said AAEA president Er Kailash Sarma,
working president Er Nava J. Thakuria and secretary Er Inamul Hye. The
forum also wishes every Indian for the forthcoming Vishwakarma Jayanti
(17 September is scheduled for worshiping the god of engineering), the
divine architect of the universe, adored by numerous engineers,
mechanics, smiths, artisans, craftsmen, factory workers, etc.
