On September 27 2005, Google, the world's largest and most used search engine decided to celebrate its birthday on September 27 to mark the announcement of the record number of pages that the search engine was indexing. The company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. On the same day in 1958, Mihir Sen, a barrister turned swimmer, navigated through the English Channel to become the first Indian to achieve the feat. Like all elite athletes, Mihir Sen thrived on risk and the same was seen in his business which became very successful as his company expanded manifold. Unfortunately, his growth was stumped by petty politics in West Bengal, which led to his decline.
