Vishwakarma Day

Vishwakarma Day the most important day according to Hindu mythology is celebrated to worship Vishwakarma, the God of mechanism. Vishvakarma was the divine architect, and one of the fourteen precious things born of the Samudra manthan. On this day, Lord Vishwakarma is worshipped, who alone constitutes the entire history with which this festival is linked. He is also called the divine carpenter and is credited as the science of mechanics and architecture.
The sacred Hindu texts also describe many of Lord Vishwakarma's architectural marvels, towns and palaces for the Gods, since ages. Some of them are Swarga in the Satya Yuga; Sone ki Lanka, where demon king Ravana dwelled in the Treta Yuga; the city of Dwarka, the capital of Lord Krishna in the Dwapara Yuga; the town of Hastinapur, the capital of Pandavas and Kauravas from the Mahabharata; and the town of Indraprastha for the Pandavas. The Mahabharata also describes him as "a great and immortal god, the lord of the arts, executor of a thousand handicrafts, the carpenter of the gods, and the most eminent of artisans, the fashioner of all ornaments."
It is celebrated generally on September 17 it is a popular festival in the Eastern and Northern parts of India. The historical relevance related to Vishwakarma Day gains more weightage as not only is Lord Vishwakarma associated with creation but al
so with the manifestation of the sciences of industry to the humankind. The festival is observed primarily in factories and industrial areas and is celebrated with full enthusiasm. Vishwakarma is known to be the divine engineer since the Puranic age. As a mark of reverence he is worshipped not only by the engineering and architectural community, but also by all professionals. Artisans, craftsmen, mechanics, smiths, welders, industrial workers, factory workers, and workers of all kinds worship Lord Vishwakarma on this day and pray for a better future, safe working conditions, and above all success in their respective fields. Workers also pray for the smooth functioning of various machines and therefore on Vishwakarma Day, pandals are set up inside the premises of industries and factories and inside these pandals, images and idols of Lord Vishwakarma are established. The whole workforce, along with each employee's and worker's family, celebrates Vishwakarma Puja in unison. Even the tools, particular to each person's relative field, are worshipped in the name of Lord Vishwakarma and aren't used throughout the day. It's their day off!
Special statues and pictures of Lord Vishwakarma are normally installed in every workplace and factory. All workers gather in one common place and perform the puja. In many factories owner and employees worship Vishwakarma ji for the good working of their works. AS per Indian mythology Vishwakarma puja is also celebrated a day after Diwali, along with Govardhan Puja.
The Vishwakarma puja hopes to bring the happiness that Lord Vishwakarma fills in one’s home with prosperity & fortune……..

Engineers day

Engineers day – a day dedicated to those without whom any machine would not have been made, without whom flying would still be a dream, without whom buildings would never touch the sky, the world would still be infinite with no modes of communications between people. a day dedicaed to those who turned magic into reality. life  has become colourful with beautiful innovations and cut through technology. So from mobile phone to airplane , television to satellite , everything has been possible because of engineers. Every day a new technology comes in to take human to the next level making lives simpler, smoother and efficient.

Engineer's Day is observed in several countries on various dates of the year.
In India Engineer's day refers to 15 September every year which is celebrated in memory of Sir Mokshgundam Visvesvaraya. If one has to list some of the most influential engineers from the history of contemporary India, he  would undoubtedly be on the top of the list.  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 in Telangana, as well as the chief engineer responsible for the construction of the Krishna Raja Sagara dam in Mandya. 
Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, it is not just analysis,  not the mere possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems but rather,  engineering is practicing the art of organised enforcement of technological change and creating something new and extraordinary.

Engineers, who are the harbinger of development
of any country, always strive for enrichment of their knowledge and skill to upgrade the quality and standard
of life.engineers have to work
from construction of rural roads to manufacturing of spaceships to Mars. Both are equally
important for accelerating the development of the country. There is no end to development and engineering progress. The process of betterment and upgradation from one standard
to the other, from ‘under-developed’ to ‘developing’, or from ‘developing’ to ‘developed’, is a
continuous process, which is led by the engineers after taking into account the prevailing sociopolitico-
economic conditions of the particular country.

so, hereby, on this 147th glorious occasion of our country, we celebrate the art of engineering and its disciples. we are proud to be engineers and hope to raise the bar and take the existing technology to a whole new level.

Civil Build the world, CS/IT create the magic, Mech/Auto move the world, EEE give power to the world, EC/TC connect the world and make it smaller…. Engineers are the true creators.. wishing you all a very happy engineers' day. proud to be an engineer.
