Google honours Noor Jehan with doodle on her 91st birthday

ISLAMABAD: Like always, Google stepped up to change its doodle to honour late Pakistani popular singer Noor Jahan.

Noor Jahan’s doodle was in purple attire, with a choker and the memorable flower on the side of her hair. This was her style for many years.

Born Allah Rakhi Wasai on September 21, 1925, she was known as the “Malika-e-Taranum” (Queen of Melody) across the world. Her voice and unique style of singing captured the hearts of millions across South Asia.

Google also honoured Edhi with doodle on his 89th birthday. Noor Jahan was known due to her beautiful voice, she was also an accomplished actress.

Noor Jehan also helped co-direct Chan Wey in 1951. Her contribution to the art and history of Pakistan will never be forgotten.

The government of Pakistan also awarded her a Sitara-i-Imtiaz, and Tamgha-e-Imtiaz.

The doodle has great resemblance to her “Dildar Sadqay Lakh Waar Sadqay” performance on PTV.

She recorded about 10,000 songs in various languages of India and Pakistan, including Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi and Sindhi.
