IESL is 110 years old…
 
IESL is 110 years old…
     

As you already know the IESL celebrated its 110th anniversary on 6th January at IESL Headquarters. There was all night pirith chanting ceremony on 3rd January followed by daana on 4th and multi religious activities on 6th. It was a kind of a time for reflection of the good work that IESL has been doing for the last 110 years and also a time to pay gratitude to the past presidents and engineers, who carried IESL forward to the present generation. Parallel to these events, several chapters too organized a number of activities to commemorate the IESL anniversary.

 

However, it was sad to notice that the presence of IESL members at those activities was so poor. Sometimes, it was only the council members with their family members at those functions. As I have mentioned in several previous editorials, poor participation of IESL members in our activities will definitely discourage the organizers and this kind of good hearted work unfortunately may not be initiated in future.

 

With all these observations, I personally urge the engineering community to follow the wisdom and path shown by the past presidents and engineers. If we enjoy some benefits being engineers or some recognition in the society, it is mainly because of those who created and nurtured IESL. We all should express our gratitude by participating in IESL activities and more than that by actively involving in promoting engineering profession in the country.
