Google celebrates India’s I-Day with an artistic doodle

Search engine giant, Google displayed an artistic doodle on its home page to commemorate India’s 71st Independence day.

The doodle includes a motif of Indian Parliament, a symbolic wheel for the Ashok Chakra, and India’s national bird, the peacock, all submerged in shades of saffron, green, white and blue. The word “Google” is displayed across the Parliament House, made out of ribbons of the Indian tricolour.

“A unique paper-cut art style has been used to create a Doodle fit for the bold and colourful celebration of today’s events. The Parliament House depicted commemorates this day, this movement, and this triumph of independence,” Google said in a statement.

The special doodle has been designed by Mumbai-based artist, Sabeena Karnik. On the previous Independence day, Google had dedicated a doodle to the historic “Tryst with Destiny” speech of the country’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.

Previously, the Red Fort, various versions of the Indian flag, Mahatma Gandhi’s Dandi March, and Indian postage stamps have been incorporated in Google’s Independence Day doodles for its India page.
