Alam Ara doodle and 2010 Pi-Day doodles
California, Mar 14: As the world celebrates Pi Day on Monday, Mar 14, the internet giant Google forgot to feature a special doodle on its search engine home page. Earlier in 2010, Google changed its logo to celebrate the Pi Day.

Pi Day is celebrated on Mar 14th every year as the month/date format reads 3/14, where the number 3.14 is commonly shortened as the value of pie (3.14159265~). Pi is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any Euclidean plane circle's circumference to its diameter; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius.

2010 Pi Day Google doodle showed various uses of π: measuring the volume of a sphere (V = 4⁄3 πr3), computing the circumference of a circle (C = 2πr), measuring the volume of a cylinder (V = πr2h), Archimedes" calculation of Pi (223/71 < π < 22/7), and the periodic function of sin(x).

Interestingly, Google featured a special doodle in Indian search engine home page to mark the 80th anniversary of first Indian movie with sound, Alam Ara. In this black and white Doodle, a pillar and the image of the girl replaces the fifth letter of the name Google - L.
