New Delhi/UNI: The Google on Sunday celebrated India's 71st Republic Day with a very unique doodle showcasing the country's rich cultural heritage that permeates and unites the diverse Asian subcontinent.
This year's doodle is illustrated by Singapore-based guest artist Meroo Seth.
From its world-famous landmarks like the Taj Mahal and India Gate to the wide array of fauna such as its national bird (the Indian peafowl) to classical arts, textiles and dances all coming together to find harmony amongst their differences, is depicted in this doodle.
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. On this day in 1950, the Indian constitution came into effect.
Festivities embody the essence of diversity found in world's largest democracy, celebrated over a three-day period with cultural events displaying national pride
