Gandhi jayanti appears as a Google doodle

 The web search engine Google has decorated its home page – seen by millions of people every day as they go there to search the internet – with a sketch of Mahatma Gandhi, who was born 140 years ago.

His face is being used in place of the initial letter “G” of the website’s onscreen name, making him one of a small number of people who have been given such prominence on the site’s search page.Gandhi’s birthday, October 2, is marked as a national holiday in India. Born in 1869, Gandhi insisted that non-violent civil disobedience was the best way to achieve change, and led nationwide campaigns in India – then under British rule – to achieve independence. He was assassinated at the age of 78 by a Hindu extremist.

Previous people featured in Google’s doodle include Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Confucius, Luciano Pavarotti, Dr Seuss, Andy Warhol, Claude Money, Louis Braille, Pablo Picasso, Vinc ent van Gogh – and, posthumously, Michael Jackson.

The doodles are overseen by Dennis Hwang, who joined the company in 2000 and has gradually been using the logo to remind people of particular dates or events. Last week the logo celebrated the company’s 11th birthday by including what looked like two letter “l”. Last month it also offered clues to crop circles and to the author H G Wells, through hints about the locations mentioned in his book The War of the Worlds.Gandhi’s own voice can be heard in a speech from 1931, available on YouTube.
