Introduction / History

According to Hindu mythology, the Khati are decendents of Lord Vishwakarma, the supposed engineer of universe. The original Khati performed yagas and experiments and were called rishis. This sect of Brahmins believed in hard work and taught engineering and science. These are the people with born intellect and are natural engineers. They enjoyed the same status as scientists and engineers. However this was challenged due to the Industrial Revolution in various parts of world as the Khati's traditional skills were shattered. In the recent century they have managed to regain their high status and most of the top engineering posts are held by Khati. The Khati believe in hard work and are gifted to be engineers and perform best in any technical field.
