New Delhi: The latest Google Doodle commemorative logo pays tribute to noted author and humorist Douglas Adams on his 61st birth anniversary on March 11.

Douglas Adams was born on March 11, 1952 in Cambridge England. He had a flair for writing.

The Google Doodle on Monday landed the web users in the scientific world with a glimpse of Adams’ best known book ‘The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy’. The doodle featured spate of elements of this scientific fiction like a towel, a bag, a cup of tea and a few other items. Most importantly, the doodle featured a gadget carrying a message ‘Don’t Panic’, which is a famous phrase of his book.

Towel is the most important thing Adams talked about. According to him, it is the most useful thing a space traveller can have. Hence, in his remembrance, Towel Day is celebrated on 25 May every year. It was first celebrated in 2001, two weeks after Adams's death on 11 May at the age of 49.
