Doodle imagines Humayun Ahmed at his estate, meeting with Himu

Humayun Ahmed would have turned 69 today.

The world’s most-used web search engine Google has created a doodle marking the birthday of Bangladeshi writer Humayun Ahmed.

The Doodle imagines Humayun Ahmed at his estate, meeting with Himu, a much-loved character from his novels.

Humayun authored over 200 books, many of which were best sellers and eight of which were made into films.

He was also a dramatist, screenwriter, filmmaker, song writer, scholar and lecturer and was often credited with revitalising Bengali literature. His unique storytelling style captures the oral tradition and rhythm at the root of

Bangla, bringing to life the stories and aspirations of traditional middle class and rural families.
Humayun Ahmed died on July 19, 2012
