Google on Tuesday commended physicist and meteorologist Anna Modayil Mani’s 104th birth commemoration with an exceptional doodle committed to her. She was one of India’s most memorable female researchers, and filled in as the Deputy Director General of the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Mani’s commitments to weather conditions estimating were tremendous, and her exploration made it feasible for India to make exact climate expectations. Alongside this, she likewise distributed a few papers on sunlight based radiation, ozone and wind energy instruments. Her work prepared for the country to tackle sustainable power.

Brought into the world in 1918 in Peermade, Kerala, Mani at first needed to seek after moving, yet picked a vocation in physical science rather in light of her advantage in the subject. She was an eager peruser from adolescence; she had perused pretty much every book at her nearby library by an early age.

Here, she concentrated on spectroscopy under Nobel Laureate Sir C V Raman, gaining practical experience in precious stones and rubies. After this, she made a beeline for London’s Imperial College in 1945, where she would have practical experience in meteorological instrumentation.

Mani got back to India and started working at the IMD in 1948. She checked out creating native framework for weather conditions estimating in India, and by 1953, she was the top of the division. In excess of 100 weather conditions instruments were rearranged and normalized for creation under her.

All through the ’50s, Mani distributed a few papers on practical energy estimation, making her one of the earliest promoters for manageable energy in India. Afterward, she laid out an organization that made sun oriented and wind energy gadgets.

Mani likewise stood firm on significant footings in the United Nations World Meteorological Organization. She won the INSA K R Ramanathan Medal for her astounding commitments to science in 1987.
