I had a dilemma about what to write, about self or about the engineer I am. I realized after reading “Krishnam Vande Jagatgurum”—a treatise by Late Shri Ganashyam Das Birla—that writing about self is very difficult and an awkward job. His well wishers insisted he write his autobiography and rightly so that succeeding generations get benefit from his life stories, struggles and experiences. However, he could not decide and sought an advice from late Pt Madan Mohan Malaviya who asked him to write about Lord Krishna’s teachings on ‘Karma’ so that whole humanity can get benefit. Since the topic here is about the engineering community and to know about mind of an engineer, I decided to follow middle path by writing about my growth as an engineer in the hope that some of my experiences, knowledge and working strategies may provide guidance to the young readers.
