Celebrating Munshi Premchand’s 136th birth anniversary, Google dedicated a doodle for the writer’s influence on the rural India. Premchand was born on July 31, 1880 in Lamhi village, Uttar Pradesh. He started writing at the age of 13 and wrote nearly 300 short stories, novels and essays in his lifetime.

]“His last and most famous novel, Godaan (1936), inspired today’s doodle, which shows Premchand (sometimes referred to as “Upanyas Samrat,” or, “emperor among novelists”) bringing his signature working-class characters to life. On what would have been his 136th birthday, the illustration pays tribute to the multitude of important stories he told,” Google says on its website.

Born as Dhanpat Rai, he began writing under the pen name Nawab Rai, but soon changed it to ”Premchand”.
He is considered to be the first Hindi author whose works depicted realism and talked about the problems of poor and middle-class.
