What is that one word that comes in the mind of billions of people when asked to search something, check the news, find a route and check any information — Google. Google has become a household name, a guide to everyone.

It is an encyclopedia readily available on the smartphones or desktops. Google began as a research project in 1996 and since then there is no looking back. 21 years ago, two Stanford PhD students, Sergey Brin and Lawrence (Larry) Page, published a paper about launching a prototype of a “large-scale search engine.”

Google indexes billions of web pages to allow users to search for the information they desire. Today, Google operates all over the world in over 100 languages, answering trillions of search queries each year. Not just information, it has multi-faceted impacts on our lives.

It has answers to our questions, various innovations, projects, services like web-based services, software services etc. Google is successfully reaching the masses and has definitely become the most loved platform. With Google, one can find any needle in any haystack at any-time, it has changed the virtual world completely.

Our team at Digpu wants to thank Google today. This is what they have to say -

Divya Rana, Our Corporate Publication Manager, says “Google has made life so much easier, it is one-stop-shop for everything. With its reach, user-friendliness and accessibility, it has brought the world closer. You can find any and every information on Google. I use google for literally everything. To list out a few, I use google to read about the current affairs & news across the globe; to expand my vocabulary — learn new words and their meanings, to listen to music, read about people I admire. Lastly being a foodie to find places to eat and learn new recipes.”

Kunwar Devender Singh, Our Asia Pacific Head, says “ Google is not only a search engine but the world’s biggest teacher. Talk about anything — art, culture, science, technology, innovation, business, entrepreneurship, Google knows it all. Google is proof that there is always so much more to know and learn. There is no end to this.”
