On the occasion of #EngineersDay i am writing a short thread on one of the greatest engineering marvels ever i.e Brihadisvara Mandir

-It is built using interlock method where no cement, plaster or adhesive was used between the stones. It has survived 1000 yrs and 6 earthquakes
-The Mandir tower at 216 feet was likely the tallest in the world at the time.
-The other structures built using this method Big Ben and Leaning Tower of Pisa are tilting with time. The temple which is way older has zero degree inclination.
- 1.3 lakh ton of granite was used to build the temple which was transported by 3000 elephants from 60 kms away.
-The temple was constructed without digging the earth
-The Kumbham at the top of the temple tower weighs 81 tons and is carved from a single piece of granite

On #EngineersDay we pay tribute to India's first woman electrical engineer - A. Lalitha.

She was widowed early at the age of 18 with a young daughter to take care of. Medicine was popular for women, but required round the clock availability. Lalitha needed to be with her child.
Her father, Prof Rao, a professor at the Electrical Engineering department at College of Engineering Guindy, pushed her case as a student.

The principal, director and fellow students were extremely supportive of her.
She started her studies in 1940 and though she was comfortable with the course, she conveyed that she felt lonely in the hostel.

CEG advertised open admissions and 2 more women Leelamma George and PK Thresia joined Civil Engineering.

Rama Setu - An Ancient Engineering Marvel

Indian civilization has strong tradition of sci & tech. It was land of sages, scholars, and scientists. Hindu is a knowledge based civilization, the Vedic texts can't be dismissed as mythologies or as work of imagination

#EngineersDay Image
Let us know the greatest engineering marvel of all time..

Rama was the world’s first king to build a bridge across the sea. But he did not do it on his own. He sought the help of a Nala, an engineer who has designed the whole construction.

The text of Ramayana gives the records of the building project in detail. As the epic says, there were special stones employed; namely, they could float on the water surface. Actually floating stones can be still found on the coast of Rameshwaram where the bridge starts in India. Image

Bharat Ratna Sir Mokshagundam Vishweshwarayya is probably the only Indian in whose honour there are four different special postage covers and stamps. I could be wrong. I don't know of any other Indian with this honour. ☺️🙏 Image

Both got rejected. Later in the evening, they met up over drinks where Sven told Jim about King Harald Bluetooth of Denmark…
