Google’s doodle celebrates world’s largest Republic

Tuesday, 26 January 2021 (16:02 IST)
New Delhi: Internet search engine Google on Tuesday celebrated India’s 72nd Republic Day with a doodle depicting Indian culture and diversity sketched in tri-colours.

An illustration by Mumbai-based guest artist Onkar Fondekar, the doodle focused on the country’s vibrant cultures, regional diversity, and architecture.

Mr Fondekar shared that he drew inspiration from the people of India and all he hopes for the people to take away from his art is “unity”.

Republic Day is celebrated to honour the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect in 1950, which replaced the Government of India Act as the governing document of India and thus, turning the nation into a newly formed republic.

Last year, Singapore-based guest artist Meroo Seth portrayed India’s cultural heritage with the Taj Mahal and India Gate, among other things. (UNI)
