Google Doodle celebrates 113th birthday of Kannada Novelist Kuvempu

New Delhi: Search engine Google on Friday celebrated the life and literature of Kuppali Venkatappa Puttappa, a renowned 20th century Indian poet and author.

Venkatappa, famously known by his pen name Kuvempu, is considered one of the greatest Kannada writers of his time.

Kuvempu’s poem featured in the Doodle is ‘Poovu’ (The Flower), rhapsodizing on the beauty of the poet’s natural surroundings.

“Kuvempu loved his writing to reflect the simple wonder of the world around him, especially flowers. To celebrate Kuvempu’s life and work, today’s Doodle by illustrator Upamanyu Bhattacharyya (and Swati Shelar, who helped with the Kannada lettering) shows Kuvempu surrounded by nature in his beloved home,” Google wrote.
