Google has a logo on almost all Google properties today for the legendary American chef and TV personality on many cooking shows Julia Child. It would be here 100th birthday today and Google wanted to pay her tribute with a special Google Doodle.

Pretty much anyone growing up in America and probably throughout most countries recognize the face, the food and the name. She has written many cook books but is most well known for her TV cook shows starting back in 1963.

There are some people who are upset that India's independence day was overshadowed by Julia Child's 100th birthday but Google India has their own logo for the independence day:

So India does not have the Julia Child logo, instead they have this.

Julia lived a pretty long life, passing in August 13, 2004 at the age of 91. She was born in California and also died there. For more about her life, see Wikipedia.

Yea at midnight 12am, I checked Google for Independence day logo, but it wasn't there. But, soon they released it for Indian users on Indian IPs. :)
