The day is the birthday of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya (1860–1965), an eminent Indian engineer from the College of Engineering, Pune (University of Pune) and statesman born in Muddenahalli-Kanivenarayanapura in present-day Karnataka. He served as the chief engineer during construction of Krishna Raja Sagara on the Kaveri River near Mysore. He also built many dams in the Bombay presidency (present-day Maharashtra). The dams built by him are still functional today, a testimony to his engineering skills.
