India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 15 Aug 2023, 09:35 am

Popular search engine Google on Tuesday celebrated Indian Independence Day by creating a colourful doodle that paid tribute to the rich textile heritage of the country.

India is celebrating its 77th Independence Day on Tuesday.

The colourful doodle illustrated textiles from 21 different regions of the country.

The doodle was illustrated by New Delhi-based guest artist Namrata Kumar.

Speaking on her illustration, Kumar was quoted as saying on the Google Doodle website: "Indian textiles have held a profound significance in my life, thanks to my mother's profession as a textile designer. Growing up surrounded by textiles from diverse regions, I developed a deep connection to these craft forms."

"Now, presented with the opportunity to create the Google Doodle for India's Independence Day, I see it as the perfect occasion to celebrate the country's rich and diverse textile traditions," she said.

"In this artwork, each textile showcased is a testament to the collective craftsmanship of skilled artisans, cultivators, weavers, dyers, printers, and embroiderers. Together, they create these extraordinary textiles that embody the essence of India's creative spirit," she said.
