Today, there are few engineers who can match the vision, administrative capability and patriotic zeal of M Visvesvaraya. This is the story of that legend whose philosophy and vision gave guidance and direction to political leaders, policy planners, economists, industrialists and educationists for building a modern India.
He was not only a pioneer engineer whose painstaking efforts led to the modernization of independent India but was also a social revolutionary who set rolling several programmes for the propagation of technical education, women's education and family planning which are in progress even today.
A man with a modern outlook, Visvesvaraya was the brain behind Krishnaraja Sagar Dam, Visvesvaraya Iron and Steel Works, Mysore Sandalwood and Soap Company and the Mysore University.
