Indian meteorologist Anna Mani is recognised with a Google Doodleimage source: google
The most recent Google Doodle honours Anna Mani, a meteorologist whose work helped establish weather forecasting in India.
On August 23, 1918, Anna Mani was born in Peermade, Kerala, India.
Mani defied conventional gender boundaries and immersed herself in books, reading nearly all of them by the time she was 12 years old.
Anna Mani's thirst for knowledge propelled her through high school and to Presidency College, Madras, where she received a degree.
After then, spectroscopy—the study of colours, light spectrums, and waves—was the primary emphasis of Mani's post-graduate work, especially as it applied to rubies and diamonds.
Anna Mani relocated to England in 1945 to attend Imperial College in London.
Despite her initial plans to continue studying physics, Mani found herself learning a lot about meteorology and the specialised equipment required to study and predict the weather.
