Google Celebrates British India's Greatest Wrestler Gamma Pehlwan's 144th birth anniversary with Doodle.
Today's (22/5/22) Google doodle features a brawny mustachioed gentleman with a mace slung over his broad shoulders.
According to the Google Doodle page, the doodle was created by guest artist Brinda Xaveri
It was a tribute to one of India's best wrestlers, Ghulam Mohammad Baksh Butt.
He is popularly known as Gamma Pehlwan or 'The Great Gamma'.
He was nicknamed as "Tiger" after winning the World Wrestling Championships in 1927.
He was awarded a version of the World Heavyweight Championship on 15 October 1910.
He was born on May 22nd, 1878 in Jabbowal Village, Amritsar district, Punjab Province, British India.
He supposedly did 5,000 squats and 3,000 push-ups every single day.
His diet consisted of 10 liters of milk, six chickens and more than a pound of crushed almond paste.
Gamma Pehlwan in 1902 when he was 20 years old lifted a stone weighing 1,200 kg.
The stone is now on display at the Baroda museum and it took 25 people and a machine to move it.
Gamma's popularity was such that even Bruce Leo is known to have been inspired by him.
