Portrayed as “the father of Pinyin”, or Chinese phonetic dialect, and hailed as the man who streamlined Chinese, Zhou Youguang would have been 112 this Saturday.

In this respect, Google is changing its logo in 12 nations to a doodle, or delineation, of him and his commitment to Chinese dialect.

This is his story:

Love for China

  • “Convey light to the world”. Conceived in Changzhou in 1906, Zhou Youguang indicated enthusiasm for semantics at the early age of 12; he moved on from secondary school with distinction.
  • Named Zhou Yaoping, he embraced the nom de plume “Yougang” in light of the fact that he needed to “bring light” to the world.
  • Hard street to college. In 1923, Zhou enlisted the college of St. John’s University, Shanghai. He was not ready to go to as a result of money related misfortunes, but rather companions and relatives raised the confirmation expense and helped him pay for educational cost.
  • He graduated in 1927, studied financial matters and took supplementary coursework in phonetics.
  • Sino-Japanese war. In 1933, he wedded Zhang Yunhe. He moved to Japan to proceed with his investigations, yet returned in 1937, toward the begin of the Sino-Japanese war.
  • After the Japanese were vanquished in 1945 toward the finish of World War Two, Zhou worked in Sin Hua bank where he was positioned abroad, first in New York City and afterward in London.
  • “Present day, resurgent China”. In 1949, he returned after the foundation of Communist China, eager to partake in a resurgent nation. “We as a whole felt that China had a decent chance to create; we didn’t expect the later turmoil. History deluded us,” Zhou told the Guardian.
  • Back in China, he showed financial aspects at Fudan University in Shanghai. Be that as it may, his way did not lead him to stay as a business analyst.
  • Zhou Youguang
