New Delhi: On the 128th birth anniversary on Tuesday of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, widely celebrated as Children’s Day across the country, Google decided to sport a playful Doodle celebrating 131 years of the hole puncher.
“Today we celebrate 131 years of the hole puncher, an understated, but essential, artifact of German engineering. As modern workplaces trek further into the digital frontier, this centuries-old tool remains largely, wonderfully, the same,” Google said.
The decision has amused social media users in India.
“#Google #Doodle pays tribute to hole puncher on 131st anniversary ! missed #ChildrensDay? asked one Twitter user.
Google Doodle recently honoured Urdu author Abdul Qavi Desnavi and Himalayan explorer Nain Singh Rawat.
The hole punch was invented by German entrepreneur and inventor Friedrich Soennecken.
