Sir Mokshagundam Vishweshwaraiah or Sir MV as he was popularly known, was an engineer from Karnataka. A recipient of the Bharat Ratna, Vishweshwaraiah was knighted as a Commander of the Indian Empire by King George V for his contributions for the public good. September 15 is celebrated as Engineer's Day in India in the memory of a man believed to be India's first engineer.
