Indian engineers are always recognised in different countries for their meticulous thought process and also skills to solve problems. The annual celebration helps the engineers to reorganize their commitment for the nation.

The divine architect of the universe is always adored by numerous engineers, artisans, craftsmen, mechanics, smiths, welders, factory workers, etc," added the AAEA press release.
