A peek inside the Pavilion of Trivandrum International Stadium (26-Jan-2014)

At the inauguration of the Trivandrum International Stadium, we were delighted to see the public taking a huge number of incredible photographs of the stadium.  We can never hope to cover the hundreds of angles that each camera could produce.

Here we are attempting to give an idea about the fantastic facilities for the sports team, as well as the international media covering the event.

The Professionals who made Trivandrum International Stadium possible

We heard many politicians speak during the inauguration on 26th January 2015. Correction.  We did not to listen to many, we walked off towards the magnificent structure, once the first one started talking.  Because we felt absolutely disgusted by some of these folks in white dhothi, who were most effective in stalling this project, pat themselves on their back and of course, each other.  Some of them were shamelessly targeting the project, barely a few days back.

So we, engineering buffs, thought we will have a tribute post about the professionals (management and engineers of IL&FS, the local architect who came up with the concept and the NGS officials) who got this marvel of engineering sprint towards the finish line in barely weeks.   Trivandrum and India’s sports fans will be eternally grateful to this epic structure for sports.

This little handful of photographs are in no way complete, for without the 100s of wonderful workers, drivers, technicians, engineers, accountants etc, this would not have happened!!!
