Today is Vishwakarma Puma day.

Vishwakarma Day is a day of celebration forVishwakarma, a Hindu god, the divine architect. He constructed the holy city of Dwarka where Krishna ruled.

He is also called the divine carpenter, is mentioned in the Rig Veda, and is credited with Sthapatya Veda, the science of mechanics and architecture.

The festival is observed primarily in factories and industrial areas, often on the shop floor.

As a mark of reverence the day of worship is marked not only by the engineering and architectural community but by artisans, craftsmen, mechanics, smiths, welders, industrial workers, factory workers and others.

They pray for a better future, safe working conditions and, above all, success in their respective fields.

Workers also pray for the smooth functioning of various machines. It is customary for craftsmen to worship their tools in his name, refraining from using the tools while doing so.

Modern electronic servers are also worshipped for their smooth functioning.
