The concept of a device that punches holes in paper and cardboard is 131-years-old today: an anniversary that Google has made a decision to celebrate with today's Google.
The hole puncher employs a lever and spring system to allow the user to line up and punch holes with cylindrical blades through stacked sheets of paper easily.
The doodle features every letter of "Google" except "L" created out of discarded colourful paper discs eliminated out of hole punch.
Google India traditionally posts a doodle dedicated to Children's Day on November 14, which is also the birth anniversary of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. The device uses a lever and spring system to allow the user to punch holes with cylindrical blades through stacked sheets of paper with minimal force, according to the Mirror.More news: Hulu working on live-action Hitman series

In the USA, the first patent for a hole puncher was given to Benjamin Smith from MA.
The hole puncher was invented by German entrepreneur Friedrich Soennecken who also invented the ring binder, CNET reported. Brooks called the device a ticket punch, according to ThoughtCo.
The design of the hole puncher has not changed much in the 131 years since its invention.
In 1992, Bernadette Chenard, a professional paper-craft-artist who formerly used leather punches and standard hole punches to create shapes from paper, was exhausted of the sound of the hammer pounding on the paper and the difficulty in achieving professional results. The series of crisp, identical holes it produces, creating a calming sense of unity among an otherwise unbound pile of loose leaf. A two-hole device then punches a piece of paper occupying the second "g" in "Google", then proceeds to smile and dance. "As modern workplaces trek further into the digital frontier, this centuries-old tool remains largely, wonderfully, the same", Google said.
