GOOGLE 19th Birthday ! ! !


Today's Google Doodle is sure to be a special one. This is because today's Google Doodle commemorates Google's 19th year of existence on earth. In other words, today is Google's 19th Birthday. To mark its 19th Birthday, Google has integrated a spinning wheel, which is a simple and fun way to explore the 19 surprises that Google has launched over the past 19 years. This includes a version of the popular classic game, Snake.

In 1997, Google's co-founder Larry Page arrived at Stanford University in order to pursue a PhD in computer science. In an act of random coincidence, Google's other co-founder, Sergey Brin, was assigned to show Larry Page around the campus. This was the chance encounter that started the entire Google phenomena.   

Both the geniuses, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, came together and started to develop a common goal: to organise the entire world's information and make this organisation into something that is useful and accessible to everybody in the world. This mantra went on to become Google's mission statement.

The name 'Google', it is interesting to know, is named after the number "Googol", which is basically the number 1 followed by a hundred zeroes! This number holds ever-increasing significance for Google as the search engine increasingly moves closer and closer to its namesake, since Google now serves more than 4.5 billion users in 160 countries speaking 123 languages worldwide.

There is an interesting history of the Google Doodle itself. It is said that in 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin drew a stick figure behind the second 'O' of Google. This meant to signify that they were not in office and were in the Burning Man festival instead. They decided that this could be an interesting way to mark cultural moments and Google users found this to be interesting as well. Thus, the Google Doodle was born.

On Google's 19th Birthday, do visit Google's home page and feel free to click on and explore all of Google's 19 different surprises through the spinning wheel.

Explorer and Humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen 156th Birthday ! ! !


He invented the Nansen Passport, a document that allowed refugees to find new homes during World War I. Google is marking the day with a Doodle for Fridtjof Nansen.

Born in Norway in 1861, Nansen's early life was dedicated to exploration. He led an expedition across Greenland on cross-country skis and tried to reach the North Pole on another trip. He fell short on the latter, but traveled farther north than anyone had at the time.

He turned his attention to humanitarian work after the onset of World War I. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 for his efforts to help prisoners of war and refugees.

Anasuya Sarabhai's 132nd Birth Anniversary


New Delhi:  Google doodle today celebrates 132nd birth anniversary of the legendary trade union leader Anasuya Sarabhai. Born on November 11, 1885, Anasuya Sarabhai was a pioneer in labour movement in the country.

Anasuya Sarabhai belonged to a wealthy family of Ahmedabad-based industrialists. Anasuya Sarabhai's parents passed away when she was a nine. At the age of 13, Anasuya Sarabhai was married off but that did not work out.

With the help of her brother Anasuya Sarabhai went to England in 1912 to study medicine. But soon Anasuya Sarabhai switched to London School of Economics after she came to know of animal dissection involved in her studies which was against her Jain beliefs.

In England, Anasuya Sarabhai got involved in the Suffragette movement. Once back in India, Anasuya Sarabhai started working for the betterment of women and poor.

Mahatma Gandhi, a family friend of Anasuya Sarabhai, mentored her. Anasuya Sarabhai got involved in the textile mill movement after seeing women returning home after 36-hour shift. Anasuya Sarabhai helped organising strikes in Ahmedabad in 1914 and 1918 for increase in wages. Eventually, Gandhi began a hunger strike which led to hike of 35 per cent.

The Labour Movement leader died in 1972.

In a statement Google said that today's doodle was created by Maria Qamar, a Pakistani-Canadian artist and author of the book Trust No Aunty.

"Anasuya's dedication to justice and equality is something I can relate to," said Qamar. In drawing the activist, she took inspiration from the Indian textile industry. "I portrayed delicate fabrics and traditional patterns found in our homes and our closets," explained Qamar. "I am honored to have the opportunity to share Anasuya's legacy with the world."

Mohammed Rafi's 93rd Birth Day


NEW DELHI:  On Padma Shri Mohammed Rafi's 93rd birthday, Google honours the legendary singer with a Doodle. Born on 24th December, 1924 in Kotla Sultan Singh, a village near present-day Majitha in Amritsar district of Punjab, Mohammed Rafi went on to win a million hearts globally.

In the early 1930's, the seventh of eight children born to Hajji Ali Mohammad, little Pheeko would follow a fakir on his rounds, and imitate his chants as they went around his native village. As Pheeko grew up, he started work at a relative's barber shop in Lahore - a cultural and film hub in those days. Although he grew up in an orthodox household where music and singing were frowned upon, Pheeko would hum songs through the day while at work. His brother, noticing his talent, arranged for him to train under Ustad Abdul Wahid Khan despite tremendous opposition from their father.

Pheeko grew up to be Mohammed Rafi, the legendary playback singer. Rafi Sahab has nearly five thousand songs to his credit across genres and languages. From classical music and romantic ballads to rock and roll, Rafi Sahab has sung in Hindi, English, Arabic, Persian, Sinhalese, Creole, and Dutch in his career spanning over 40 years.

In 1941, Mohammed Rafi made his debut as a playback singer in Lahore with a duet "Soniye Nee, Heeriye Nee" with Zeenat Begum in the Punjabi film Gul Baloch before moving to Mumbai in 1944.

Once in Mumbai, Rafi shared a ten-by-ten feet room with one other in the crowded Bhendi Bazaar area. His first Bollywood break came with "Aji dil ho kaabu mein to dildar ki aisi taisi" for the film "Gaon Ki Gori".

Google Honours Author Gabriel García Márquez


The Internet search giant is using its logo to honor author Gabriel García Márquez, often called by the nickname Gabo. The Colombian author would have been 91 on Tuesday.

Márquez was born in Aracataca, Colombia in 1927, and wrote several books, including One Hundred Years of Solitude.

The doodle featured on Google's main search page depicts the city of Macondo as described by Márquez in his book.

"In his long literary career, he penned over 25 books, transporting readers into a world of magical realism where they find themselves in the lush, humid tropics — moldering into solitude or being slowly consumed by the throes of passion,"

Google Celebrates 114th Birth Anniversary Of K L Saigal


NEW DELHI: Today is the 114th birth anniversary of Kundan Lal Saigal, or KL Saigal as he is popularly known. Google is marking this anniversary with a doodle of the late maestro.

Saigal, blessed with a sonorous voice and a unique song style, was Bollywood's first legitimate 'superstar'. He was an actor-singer, appeared in 36 films made in three languages, and sang 185 songs in his 15-plus-year career.

Saigal was the gold standard for all the singing luminaries who came after him; indeed, many mimicked him. These include Mohammad Rafi and Kishore Kumar. To think, Saigal wasn't even a trained musician.

The deep-timbred Saigal had humble beginnings and learned music informally, even as he sang along with his mother and other devotees at local religious shrines. He never managed to complete school and before his big break worked odd jobs like as a timekeeper and a salesman. He continues to sign on the side, though. ...

Google Celebrates Omar Sharifl


When US movie audiences first laid eyes Omar Sharif, he was a shimmering apparition, galloping out of a desert mirage on the back of a camel toward Peter O'Toole in the 1962 epic Lawrence of Arabia.

The Egyptian actor's journey would take him to leading roles in such films as Doctor Zhivago, Funny Girl and The Night of the Generals. Google celebrated the iconic actor's birthday on Tuesday with a dashingly handsome animated doodle.

Sharif was born Michel Demitri Shalhoub in Alexandria, Egypt, on April 10, 1932. He earned a degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Cairo and worked in his family's lumber business before making his way abroad to study acting at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
