Google Doodle – RK Narayan
108th Birth Anniversary of RK Narayan
Today is the 108th birth anniversary of RK Narayan, the famed Indian writer, best known for his works set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi. Google on its search page has created a doodle showcasing Malgudi Days to pay tribute to its creator RK Narayan on his birthday.
Google said on its Google Doodle page:
“Who’s the man behind the book on our doodle in India? It’s Malgudi’s native son, famed Indian writer RK Narayan. Narayan is a well known pioneer of early Indian literature and set most of his stories in the fictional town of Malgudi. Happy 108th birthday to RK Narayan”
The doodle is simple with just the word ‘Google’ written in blue color on an earthen background with just the second O signifying an elderly man (presumably Narayan himself) reading the popular collection of short stories, Malgudi Days.
On clicking the doodle, it takes the visitor to Google search result page for information about the author and his works.
