Google Doodle knows how to hit it out of the park with its Doodles. Time and again, we get reminded of important pages from Indian history, that should not have needed a reminder, in the first place. Today, Google paid a tribute to late lyricist and songwriter Kaifi Azmi. He has penned words of many famous poems and songs that we hum even today. It is his 101st birth anniversary on January 14, 2020 today. Google's doodle for the star is amazingly painted. The artist behind it surely deserves a round of applause. Kaifi's doodle is looking pristine wearing a white kurta, sporting salt and pepper hair, singing into a mic. Maybe he is reciting his favourite poem.
