As India celebrates it’s 71st Republic Day, Google has released a beautiful doodle on its search page to join in the celebration.
The doodle highlights the cultural heritage of the country with an array of depictions of Indian musical instruments, dance forms, the India Gate, the famous yellow and green auto-rickshaws in Delhi, the Taj Mahal, India’s national bird peacock and more.
The illustration is done by Singapore-based guest artist Meroo Seth.
As Google writes in its blog, “Republic Day marks the completion of India’s transition from the British Raj to an independent republic. It also represents the anniversary of the declaration of Purna Swaraj, which translates to “complete freedom,” by the Indian National Congress in 1929.”
