Google marks one of the most important freedom fighter's birth anniversary.

Google is commemorating 'The Nightingale of India' Sarojini Naidu wih an artistic Google Doodle that rightfully depicts the child prodigy.

Marking the 135th birth anniversary of one the framers of what we now know as the Indian Constitution, Google has, as usual, symbolicaly designed the Doodle keeping her contributions in mind.

The tech giant portrayed here love for writing by replacing the L with a pen. Naidu began writing since she was 13. In 1905, her first collection of poems, named 'The Golden Threshold' was published. Her poems and plays were admired by many.

Some of her literary works include, The Bird of Time: Songs of Life, Death and the Spring, The Broken Wing: Songs of Love, Death and the Spring, Muhammad Jinnah: An Ambassador of Unity, Feast of Youth, The Magic Tree and The Wizard Mask.

She was the first Governor of the United Provinces from 1947 to 1949, the first woman to become the governor of an Indian state. Sarojini Naidu joined the Indian national movement in the wake of partition of Bengal in 1905.

Google has recently notched up its interest in Indian history and events and has made some very interesting Doodle's to celebrate those occasions. The last Google Doodle for India was on the occasion of Republic Day.
