For example, if we look at the smart phone kept in our hand and look back and remember its history, then we get a feel of the changes taking place. About 15 years ago, instead of a telephone, mobile phones had come in the hands of people, in which they became even closer to their loved ones through calls and SMS. After some time, this mobile phone was replaced by smart phone making things far more easy and innovative. Today the world is in a fist. From talking to loved ones, paying bills, shopping, bank work, and many things are possible through a smart phone. And such changes are taking a better form every few minutes; the credit of such development goes to the engineers. This was only an example. There are many such areas where engineers have shown their feats and made the world travel up to the sky sitting at one place. I would like to share with you some interesting snippets from the life of a great man.
