By Malavikka

While Google doodle today commemorated the existence of 131 years of Hole Puncher, it simultaneously punctured the expectations of the Indian audience who came in search of a children's day doodle.

"Today we celebrate 131 years of the hole puncher, an understated -- but essential -- artefact of German engineering. As modern workplaces trek further into the digital frontier, this centuries-old tool remains largely, wonderfully, the same," Google said in its description on the doodle.
