Who is Kaifi Azmi and why has the Google team created a doodle about him in India today?
Today it marks the 101st anniversary of the famous Indian poet Kaifi Azmi’s birth. He was born in 1919 and published his first poem when he was just 11. Gandhi's movement inspired him to poetry, and for this very reason he left for Mumbai, where he started his own newspaper.
He received a lot of different awards for his activity including one of India's most prestigious awards. In addition, Kaifi Azmi protected the equal rights of men and women and founded a special organization that has been working up to now.
