SINGAPORE: On what would have been his 107th birthday, local composer Zubir Said - best known for composing Singapore's national anthem - received a digital homage: His own Google Doodle.

The personalised caricature of Zubir Said in front of the Google logo can be seen on both the Singapore and international version of the search engine's website. Users who click on the caricature are redirected to search hits for Zubir Said, with the Wikipedia entry on the composer as the first entry.

It's certainly very nice, but I do wonder about how Google goes around deciding what/who gets a doodle? Anyone here work for Google and can spill the beans?
