Happy Engineer's Day

The day is the birthday of Sir M. Visvesvarayya, an eminent Indian engineer and statesman.

He served as the chief engineer during construction of Krishna Raja Sagara Dam on the Kaveri River near Mysore.

He also built many dams in the Bombay presidency (present day Maharashtra). The dams built by him are still functional even today, a testimony to his brilliance, skill, honesty and dedication.

So 15 September, Engineer's Day 2008, is quite a remarkable tribute to the greatest Indian Engineer Bharat Ratna M. Visvesvarayya.

Moh maaya vyaayey nahin Jeynay, dridth vairagya jana manma ray

Tiger Balm and skin burning ?

Till today I never used any balm but 2 days before I used Tiger balm on my forehead and got burn marks on my forehead.

Thanks to my dermitologist who cure those burn marks.

:(

So before applying Tiger balm check whether it suits your skin or not. They have also printed this warning on there product.

I learnt my lesson.

I searched google for complaint against tiger balm and I found these links:
