Google which is a big search-engine for online information is pretty awesome but sometimes you can’t trust its information 100 percent.
This is proved by recent twitter posts between the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
PM Modi who seems to be tech-friendly and a big fan of Google wished President Ghani 3 months ahead of his actual birthday.
On February 12, PM Modi apparently wanted to be the first person wishing President Ghani on the internet for his birthday but oops! he did not know that the date written as his friend’s date of birth in Google is wrong.
“Happy birthday @ashrafghani. Praying for your long life & exceptional health and a joyful journey ahead.” PM told Afghan President through a post on his Twitter account.
But he faced mocking on the platform when President Ghani who is at the time in Munich replied to thank him for his ‘gracious words’ and let him know that his DOB in google is incorrect.
“@narendramodi Greetings from Munich Mr. PM. Although, my Birthday is on 19th May, but I’d still like to thank you for your gracious words :)”.
Some followers of the PM blamed Google search-engine for the mistake but others recommended that his team should collect precise information, especially about the world leaders.
