Sep 15, Great men to be remembered

I wish to talk about 2 persons today..

Mr. C N Anna Durai

A gem of politicians... He had many visions about the people and their life style.. He was very simple till his death and he was a King maker during his period.. He was the one who gave importance to education... But the Politicians came after him, used his name to grow but not justified his vision..

When he died, It was 15 million people attended his funeral, which is mentioned in Guinness Book Record.

Mr. Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya

Bharat Ratna, Visvesvarayya an engineer contributed to the Nation widely. He implemented great projects to reduce the flood in Karnataka and Hydrabad. He implimented irrigation system for Deccan area. He was Diwan of Mysore during 1908. He was one of the founder of Government Engineering college, Bangalore, One of the first engineering college in India.
