Respected  Prabhakar Sir
I am very much thrilled to read that you had a golden opportunity of meeting Sir MV, the Legendary Engineer  and 1st Bharat Ratna awardee,  in your student career.
You are really blessed.

Dear Dr. Subramanian and Er PVS Rao,

Thank you for your kind words on my painting of Sir MV and on the meeting I had with him in 1955.

Certainly, such meetings of men of high calibre inspire us to do well in life later.   I am attaching herewith a copy of the visiting card of Sir MV which I got from his Secretary after the meeting, and I have kept it as a memento.


With best wishes,

Dear all  Sefi  Engrs,
HAPPY  ENGINEERS  DAY. When in USA , I live in San Francisco.  When I drive over the newly constructed  6 lane BAY  BRIDGE ( Replacing the Old one) over the sea, I wonder how much faith these thousands  of San Francisco people (with their families) have in us engineers , that  their Car, Van  or  Trucks  will not fall down in Sea and they will not be drowned.  We  structural engineers  are doing  a great service  to  society  by our skills of engineering. I am a  very proud Structural Engineer.  

Regards.
