Click to ENLARGE. Google’s ‘Doodle Archive’.

It is nearly 9am on Sunday, April 14, 2019 in Sri Lanka and still NO Google Doodle for Sinhala New YearAluth Avurudu.

They have already posted the Google Doodles for Bangladesh, Thailand & Vietnam — for 2019 — as you can see above.

It could still happen, BUT it is NOT looking good.

I feel bad for the Sinhalese. Google really is giving them the finger! Shame.

Well, I did my bit 5-years ago and got Sri Lanka its VERY FIRST Google Doodle. And I am not even a Sri Lankan anymore — legally.

There are Sri Lankans that work for Google They obviously don’t care.


Happy New Year, irrespective.

They probably got the story from WIRED. Same story. Click to ENLARGE.

Google “when DNA evidence is wrong”.

Fascinating story. I never realized that DNA could be inadvertently transferred to a crime scene or even to the body of the actual victim.

In this story DNA got transferred via an oxygen-level testing oximeter used by EMTs. So, much for EMTs thoroughly sanitizing their equipment. The DNA found on the fingernails of a murder victim was DNA from a previous innocent patient that had had been treated by the same EMTs. They used the same oximeter on both. WOW. The poor innocent guy had been arrested and was languishing in jail.

Definitely worth reading.

Google Doodle For Sri Lanka February 4, 2019 Independence Day — Recycled From Last Year.

Last Year’s

As with last year Google INCORRECTLY refers to it as
“Sri Lanka National Day”.



Though it is RECYCLED from last year, this will, nonetheless, make a LOT of people, like 14 million, very happy.

Having snubbed them in 2016 & 2014, Google has again honored Sri Lankan Independence Day, 2019 — 71th anniversary.

I, as the World knows, got the very 1st Google Doodle for Sri Lanka, for Independence Day, in 2013. So, I have connection …

For reasons that I cannot fathom, Google, as they also did (incorrectly) in 2015, again calls it “National Day“. NOT SO! Google should Google that. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY — 70-years.

My 2013 Google Doodle & the one in 2015.
