In its first, Google India seemed to have the present Indian Prime Minister mixed up with the first that the country got after its independence
Google is certainly the know-all of our time but the same was not exhibited when the global search engine was recently asked who the first Prime Minister of India was.
The query threw up a search page that had Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru's name on the Wikipedia page of 'List of Indian Prime Ministers' with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's picture on the side.

Once a user clicked on the webpage link, it redirected to a Wikipedia page that correctly displayed all the details of the Prime Ministers of the country along with their correct pictures.
The goof-up stirred a wave of reactions on social media, here's taking a look at someone of them.
