Google has a long running tradition of honoring iconic figures in all fields of life with a Doodle on the homepage of its search engine. Today, Google gave a tribute on Madam Noor Jehan‘s 91st Birthday with a Doodle on the front page of the Pakistan version of Google search engine.
Madam Noor Jehan is perhaps the most influential artist of her time in the entire South Asia. In 1965, she received the prestigious Pride of Performance Award from Government of Pakistan. She is also often referred as Malika-e-Tarannum, which means the queen of melody in Urdu.
She was born on 21 September 1925 and enjoyed a career span of over sixty years. She breathed her last on 23 December 2000.
In the recent past, Google has also featured many public personalities and celebrated national and religious events like Eid ul Azha, Independence Day, etc.
The Google Doodle on Madam Noor Jehan’s 91st Birthday was presented in collaboration between Google’s Culture Institute and the Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP).
