Sarla Thukral Google Doodle: At age 21, wearing a traditional sari, she ventured into the cockpit of a little twofold winged plane for her first performance flight. Lifting the specialty into the sky, she left a mark on the world simultaneously. 

Google Sunday devoted a doodle on its landing page to Sarla Thukral, India's first lady to steer a flight, on the event of her 107 birth commemoration. 

“We planned to run this same doodle honouring Sarla Thukral in India last year. However, when the tragic plane crash occurred in Kerala, we withheld the doodle out of respect to the event and relief effort. Though we don’t usually run doodles more than once, Thukral left such a lasting legacy for women in aviation that we decided to run the doodle this year in honour of her 107th birthday,” the company said in a statement.

Thukral was brought into the world on August 8, 1914 in Delhi, British India, and later moved to Lahore in present-day Pakistan. She was an Indian pilot, originator and business visionary.
