Google Doodle for Annie Besant’s 168th Birthday

Oct 1, 2015
A fierce advocate of Indian self-rule, Annie Besant loved the language, and over a lifetime of vigorous study cultivated tremendous abilities as a writer and orator. She published mountains of essays, wrote a textbook, curated anthologies of classic literature for young adults and eventually became editor of the New India newspaper, a periodical dedicated to the cause of Indian Autonomy and featured in today’s Doodle by artist Lydia Nichols.

While the woman at the center of our logo looks perfectly content rocking sweetly in her chair, her powerful speeches could whip an audience of thousands into a frenzy.
