Opening heading[edit]

Does somebody knows from when we started celebrating this day(15th Sept) as Engineers Day?

is there some day as World's Engineering Day? Which is that?

A shocking error[edit]

It is shocking to see that Sir M.V.'s birthday is mentioned as 28th August. This error symbolises all that is wrong with Wikipedia and with us, unthinking persons, who accept the written word without query. Someone has even posted a query above asking when we started celebrating 15th Sept. as "Engineer's Day"!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder who the Admin of this article is. He should hang his head in shame.

The date of birth is actually 15th September Prksh1 09:01, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

What is shocking is to see comments like these. If something is in error, just go and correct it and cite reliable sources. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.113.47.66 (talk) 06:30, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Removed 26 commandments[edit]

I have removed the 26 commandments:

  • There are only 11 of them not 26.
  • They are unreferenced.
  • They are not encyclopedic - individual's mantras of success needn't be collected on wikipedia.

DVG ?[edit]

You have not mentioned the name of DVG who was a long time friend of Sir M.V . He also assisted Sir M.V on many administrative matters.

The source of this is Jnapaka Chitra Shaale written by DVG. 59.96.192.206 (talk) 16:57, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

There is no "You" here. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, yes, even you can add the information to this article. If you have a reliable source which talks about major interactions between Sir M.V and DVG, please go ahead and add that information yourself. If you are not comfortable, please provide more information to this talk page, on what is present in the source you are referring to. - KNM Talk 20:23, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

nagendra prasad Are books considered as reliable sources ?Chandra.mouli.n (talk) 11:32, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes. If you are referring to a book, along with the author name, please provide the publication as well as ISBN. - KNM Talk 14:40, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Birthday?[edit]

He was born on the 15th of September 1860 not 1861. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.178.216.129 (talk) 16:10, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Mokshagundam VisvesvarayaVisvesvarayaVisvesvaraya is the common name, as can be seen from the sources used in the article, as well as a google books search ([1] and [2]). I ask for a discussion regarding this move, per WP:UCN. Lynch7 07:43, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
