When you type in the words ‘India first PM’ into Google India’s search bar you will find unusual results. Google is the go-to answer for any question or query and has almost entirely replaced the earlier concept of checking facts in encyclopedias, however, it might not be a good idea to blindly believe Google, after all, machines also make mistakes?
A screenshot of a person’s Google search for ‘India’s first PM’ went viral after Google replied with some unexpected results. While Google got the name of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru correct, it depicted an image of current Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with the name of India’s first PM.
According to some reports, it’s likely that the search engine got confused about the name and the picture as PM Modi has been ‘India’s first PM’ to visit Israel, ‘India’s first PM’ to visit Sweden in 30 years and ‘India’s first PM’ to implement Goods and Services Tax.
As It experienced When one clicks on the Wikipedia link, ‘List of Prime Ministers in India’, the page appropriately describes the Prime Minister’s position in India and correctly lists all the country’s PMs in the right order and with the accurate photographs next to them.
If anyone didn’t bother to click through, even if, someone unfamiliar with the country’s leaders, he or she could well consider PM Modi as Pt. Nehru.
