Google Search home page today has an error, see it to believe it

Myself being a developer you all know we can't do away with Google Devta :-) so we are in the habit of opening google search page ( or thousand times daily..ok..if not thousand then atleast 500 times :-) ha ha..

Today when I opened this page, as many times in the past, google had a lovely image there. It looked pretty and when I moved my mouse over I was delighted. Again google had a small surprise. Sometimes I think not only hard core developers, designers too show their stuff at google.

Ok now lets get back to google error (which I think is), or may be its intentional (then I would like to know why)..

1) See picture below of google search. See arrow marked with BLUE color. You will notice that there is a clock (hour, minute and second hand clearly visible). Ok now lets see what google is showing when its magnified.

2) See picture below (magnified picture)

Now in the picture above marked with RED ARROW, you can clearly see that the MAGNIFIED image is wrong, instead of a clock its showing GEARS.

3) Now to further cement it, I have magnified Picture 1st (the one showing clock) relevant portion 3 times, you have a look yourself.

So you can clearly see yourself that the magnified image isn't correct.
I wonder if its intentional but if not then I will be interested in knowing what google says about this :-)

Google also makes mistakes :-) after all humans have made it ..

Sathya Sai Baba : God or No God : my views

There has been a lot of controversy around Sathya Sai Baba, some consider him as a God and some dismiss him as fake. I have myself seen some of the videos which may create doubt in someone's mind, but then I think about most of the God's in past, just ponder on some of the questions that I am raising

1) Some of the miracles of Sathya Sai Baba has been captured in camera and that's why we see it and can raise objections to it, now think of all people in the past whom people think of God, isn't their minute chance of their miracles also being fake? But problem is we don't have video of that, so many are lucky to escape that type of scrutiny.

Had there been no recording of Sathya Sai Baba,  future generations  would have considered him God, and there would not have been an iota of doubt on this. I think you will agree to this.

2) There has been many God's in the past, but it will become very difficult for anyone to be God now. Because in today's world CAMERA sees it all. Thats why gurus will appear, but not God.

I believe in God and there are enough reasons for me to do so, but I just wanted to write my view on Sathya Sai Baba, lets take good teachings from him. God or No God it doesn't matter.
