On February 6, 2014, Wikipedia commemorated the 140th anniversary of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura’s appearance on its Main page under the Did you know… section.
Readers could see a photograph on the 11-year-old Bimala Prasad with a blurb that reads:
Did you know ...that Bimala Prasad (pictured) would be feared as the "lion guru" and respected as a "living encyclopedia”?
