When Google’s googly over CEO Sundar Pichai’s birthday left netizens baffled

New Delhi: Pichai Sundararajan better known as Sundar Pichai, grew up in Chennai and studied engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology. He made many people believe that dreams do come true.

He is the chief executive officer (CEO) of Alphabet Inc. and its subsidiary Google and has been included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2016 and 2020 already.

During an intervier, Pichai said, “My father spent the equivalent of a year’s salary on my plane ticket to the U.S. so I could attend Stanford. It was my first time ever on a plane,” Pichai said, adding that when he eventually landed in California, things were not as he had imagined.

Every Indian feel a personal connection with Pichai and on his birthday, many have been wishing him on social media.

But really is today his birthday? If you google that it will tell you no.

So when is his real birthday, A Reuters fact-box on Pichai says he was born on Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India on June 10, 1972, as does a report in The New Indian Express.

So why does Google is showing July 12 to users? It is being reported that Google draws its answer from a Biography on Pichai by Britannica, which lists the date as July 12. The Britannica birthdate appears unchanged from the time it was first published, on October 3, 2016.

At the time of publishing this article, Google shows June 10, 1972 as Pichai’s birthdate.
