    The creator of the universe and the god of traders, Lord Vishwakarma.

    Vishwakarma Jayanti will be celebrated on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. According to the Hindu calendar, the festival of Vishwakarma Jayanti is celebrated on the Chaturdashi date of the Krishna Paksha of Ashwin month. In the mythology of Hinduism, it is believed that Lord Vishwakarma created the universe. It is said that Trishul for Lord Shiva and Sudarshan Chakra for Lord Vishnu were also composed by Vishwakarma. It is believed that Gold Lanka was also built by Vishwakarma. Seeing his amazing contribution in the field of architecture and crafts in ancient times, he was called the god of architects and craftsmen. In many places, he is still considered the world's first engineer. It is said that by his grace a person achieves success in craftsmanship and architecture.
    This festival is specially celebrated by the traders so that their trade will be more benefited, this year the merchant class has been in considerable economic loss due to the corona epidemic, we hope that good times will come back soon..

    Wish you all members, A very happy Vishwakarma Jayanti.

    Probably this is for the first time the ISC has been informed about the great day today dedicated to Lord Vishwakarma and the traders respect this God for business flourishing. India has already gone through the worst phase of no economic activity for the six moths and Vishwakarma should guide and help the trading community to incur more profit this time to compensate the loss. On this day I call upon the Industries and companies to start work two hours extra daily so that the loss of man hours and loss of produce can be recovered and the economy is put into more vibrant place. It is the people who should help the government to think differently and help in raising our GDP growth fast, One thing is sure once the economy comes back to rail the pending purchases would be made and India would raise in performance for sure.

    Wishing you all a Happy Viswakarma Jayanthi.

    As per Hindu myths, Lord Viswakarma is the creator of this universe. He is the creator of everything that is being used by us. He is not the Lord for the business and trade, but the creation/manufacturing/works that are connected with materials. Look at the Viswakarma community and understand this. Lord Viswakarma is a five-faced Lord. The community has five(5) different sects viz. Blacksmith(iron), Carpenter(wood), Tinsmith (metals, utensils) Goldsmith(Gold and silver) Stone smith(Sculptors) without which no work is possible in this world. Among the above five, the blacksmith is the supreme who creates items that require to help the creation by the other smiths. E.g. Hammer and Chisels made of iron which is essential to create any tool. They are the first and primary tools, and they are the master of all other tools.

    According to myths, Lord Viswakarma is Father-in-law of Lord Surya(Sun) and Grandfather of Lord Shaniswaran. Yet the Lord is not very popular like other Lords we pray and worship. There are very few temples for Lord Viswakarma. Only the Viswakarma community worships Lord Viswakarma.

    Happy Viswakarma Jayanthi.

    Lord Vishwakarma is believed to be the architect of Dwarka the city of Lord Krishna. He is also the architect for Maya Sabha of Pandavas. This palace only made Duryodhana get jealous of Pandavas. He fabricated various weapons to many Gods, it is believed. Rig Veda mentioned Vishwakarma as the divine carpenter. He is supposed to be the God of Mechanics and architecture.
    On this day in almost all the factories, a pooja will be performed and all the machines will be cleaned and worshipped by the people working on those machines. The pooja will be performed by the workers on the shop floors in almost all the industrial areas. BMS, the union of workers having affiliation to BJP will celebrate this day as a festival.
    I wish all the members of ISC a happy Vihvakarma Jayanthi. I hope all will clean their desktops and laptops and perform pooja as they are the machines for the members here.

    always confident

    Today evening, I happened to watch on FB, a video of a Mahabharath serial showing Viswakarma constructing Indraprast for Pandavas in a jungle. Rightly said by Rao that this city and the ridiculing incident happened between Duryodhan and Drowpathi provoked Duryodhan to take revenge of Panchali(Drowpathi). It is a blessing to watch that scene on this Viswakarma day. May Lord Viswakarma bless all the communication gadgets of the members of ISC and its members.

    In our holy books and scriptures every one having talents and intelligence been given importance and there are stories associated with all the Godly figures that were there during the old times and directed and guided the communities in creative paths. Lord Vishwakarma is one of those respectable entities that contributed a lot in the making of architectural designs and other infrastructure for the kings and their kingdom during that time. So we can consider him like a chief architect or engineer of today's time but only difference is that at that time they managed with little tools and more of common sense than today's variety of tool but less creative approach. That is why these old personalities are being treated as God in our culture and people worship and respect them.
    Knowledge is power.
