Many people in India and elsewhere will be celebrating the birthday of someone born in Austria on Apr 20, 1889. Instead, we now look at April 21.
April 21 is “Civil Service Day” in India.
1864: Max Weber, sociologist
1882: Percy Bridgman, physicist
1915: Anthony Quinn, actor
1922: Alistair Maclean, writer.
1926: Queen Elizabeth II
1945: S. Venkataraghavan, cricketer
1910: Mark Twain, writer
1946: John Maynard Keynes, economist
1971: Francois Duvalier, dictator of Haiti

Note: There was some speculation as to whether Queen Elizabeth would abdicate on her birthday following the death of Prince Philip. April 21 is her actual birthday, while it is an official celebration in June to make it a more convenient public holiday.
