Google Doodle Celebrates 77th I-Day By Honoring India’s Rich Textile Legacy
Google is celebrating India’s 77th Independence Day in a special way. They created a “doodle,” which is a special drawing on their website, to honor India’s rich tradition of making textiles. The doodle was made by an artist named Namrata Kumar from New Delhi.
The doodle shows a picture that looks like a patchwork quilt made from different types of fabrics. This represents the many different kinds of textiles that are made in India. Skilled workers like weavers, embroiderers, and dyers make these textiles.
The artist did a lot of research to show different types of textile crafts from different parts of India. She included things like embroidery, different ways of weaving, printing techniques, and more.
The doodle is like a beautiful picture that shows all these different techniques coming together.
The doodle also has the word “Google” in the middle, written with letters that look like they’re embroidered. This doodle is special because it’s for India’s Independence Day, which is on August 15. This is the day when India became free from British rule in 1947 after 200 years.
To celebrate this day, there are ceremonies where the Indian flag is raised, and the national anthem is sung. People remember the leaders who helped India become independent. There are also movies, cultural events, and activities like kite flying.
The artist, Namrata Kumar, wanted to show the beauty of India’s textiles and how they are a part of the country’s identity. Google has been making special doodles for India’s Independence Day for many years.
Each year, Google Doodle shows something different about India’s culture and history. Last year, the doodle represented people flying kites, which also depicts the freedom of India.
