    Glad to see that our Indian lady is honored in Google, who is a pioneer of women's labor movement in India. Google has honored with this doodle on her in 132nd birth anniversary. Her doodle was created by Maria Qamar, a Pakistani Canadian artist.

    It was good to have a union in olden days as meeting or communicating with higher-up was found difficult. But later day by day because of unions many organizations either lost their charm or getting vanished. In spite of the managements providing good facilities, unions are tempting the employees for their sake and thereby making them to strand in streets.

    Such remembrances are good. I had read about this leader quite long ago. But was not at all in my mind now. Today when I saw the Google doodle and searched on the matter, I could recall what I had read long ago. At least now the name will get reinforced better. Google deserves a thanks for that.
