Tech-giant Google today (June 29) commemorated the 125th birth anniversary of Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis, the ‘plan-man’ of India by dedicating a doodle in his honour. He was born on 29 June 1893 in West Bengal.
PC Mahalanobis is known as the Father of Statistical Science in India. He is also considered as the chief architect of Indian statistical system, as it was he who established the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) in 1931 in erstwhile Calcutta.
The day is also observed as the "Statistics Day" in India. PC Mahalanobis also help establish statistical institutes across the country like the Central Statistical Organisation (CSO), the National Sample Survey (NSS) and the Annual Survey of Industries (ASI).

Mahalanobis is also known for his contributions in developing statistical tools to get an estimate of population distribution in the country, crop yields and household consumption post independence. His estimation techniques combined statistics with other disciplines like anthropology, physics and economics.

He is also remembered for what is known as "Mahalanobis Distance", a concept in statistics which is used in the analysis of anthropometric data. Indian second five year plan’s (1956-1961) emphasis on rapid industrialization too followed his development model. He served as a member of India's Planning Commission from 1953 until 1967.

He died on June 28, 1972.
