The image could be seen by Google users in 13 countries, including the United StatesIndia, Argentina, Chile and Japan.

Khorana was born on January 9, 1922, in a
 small Indian village called Raipur. The area is now part of

to read and write. This was not common in poor, rural places like 

Khorana received scholarships to attend Punjab University where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
 The Indian government later gave Khorana a scholarship for him to do 
his doctoral studies in chemistry at the University of Liverpool in 

Khorana went on to do research at universities around the world, including Canada
 and the United States. In 1968, he and two other researchers at the 
University of Wisconsin – Madison earned the Nobel Prize in Physiology
