On August 23, Google released a unique doodle in honor of the illustrious physicist and meteorologist Anna Mani, who turned 104 years old that day. On its main page, Google featured a vibrant and humorous artwork of Anna Mani to honor her.

All thanks to her, her life's work as a physicist and meteorologist enabled Indian government institutions to forecast the weather in the nation today correctly.

How Many Kids Does Anna Mani Have?

Anna Mani was born as the seventh child of eight kids her parents had. However, this did not come down to the next generation completely, as Mani never got married.

While Google doodle gives tribute to this amazing Indian scientist, the curiosity around how she managed her married life as a Soth Asian woman is extremely high among the netizens. To break it to everyone, Anna Mani did not have kids of her own. 

As an aunt to her siblings' children, she was a great mother, and there is no doubt about it. However, as someone who let her work to the talking, her family life was almost always behind the shadows. Her intimate relationships were never brought into the media, and people who were close to her chose to remain out of the limelight. 

Why Was Anna Mani Never Married? Family Life

Anna Mani was so engrossed in her career that she never got time for love. As cliche as it sounds, this has been quoted everywhere for a reason behind her staying single all her life. There might be other ideologies as well, but the scientist did not mention them anywhere. 

It is unknown if she was religious in any way, but she had her own set of beliefs and principles. As the woman rarely was spared from imparting her knowledge on weather and her own discoveries, marriage was never really highlighted.

When she was active, there were no social media. Hence she did not have to face questions that were uncomfortable, something she did not want to answer. Now that the internet is the major highlight in our lives, millennials and gen Zs got introduced to her supreme talent, which has led to the intrigue around her life choices. Unfortunately, those were never mentioned. 

In a family of Syrian Christians, Anna was born in 1918 at Peermade, then Travancore, now Kerala, India. Her father was an atheist and a civil engineer. She read a lot of books and started wearing just khadi clothing after being inspired by Gandhi's nationalist struggle and impressed by him during the Vaikom Satyagraha.

Anna Mani spent her early years immersed in reading, and by the time she was eight years old, she had read practically all of the Malayalam-language books available at her local library. She turned down her family's traditional diamond earring gift for her eighth birthday and requested a set of Encyclopaedia Britannica instead.

Anna Mani's Net Worth

The Indian Meteorological department scientists are paid around 19 lakhs INR to 25 Laks INR today. Things were different when Mani was actively working for it. In the 50s and 60s, the pay was certainly low, but not low for the time. 

She began working at the Pune meteorology department in 1948, where she authored multiple studies on the instrumentation used in meteorology. Mani was in charge of organizing the importation of British meteorological equipment. She had taken charge of a division of 121 men by 1953.

Mani wanted to give India weather instrument independence. She standardized almost one hundred weather instruments' graphics. She also established a network of stations to measure sun radiation in 1957 and 1958.

Further, establishing a tiny workshop in Bangalore, she produced tools for measuring solar energy and wind speed in addition to working on a tool for measuring ozone. The superwoman was granted membership in the International Ozone Association. 


With her career soaring higher and higher till the time she passed away, Anna Mani definitely did have a net worth of around 1 million dollars. This data is stated by
