How Very True
Pinned to a site-hut during the construction of the Konkan railway:
I take the vision which comes from dreams
and apply the magic of science and mathematics,
adding the heritage of my profession
and my knowledge of nature’s materials
to create a design.
And when we have completed our task
all can see
that the dreams and plans have materialised
for the comfort and welfare of all.
I organise the efforts and skills of my fellow workers
employing the capital of the thrifty
and the products of many industries,
and together we work toward our goal
undaunted by hazards and obstacles.
I am an Engineer.
I serve mankind by making dreams come true.
