Google is celebrating India’s 73rd Republic Day today with a doodle featuring elements from the Republic Day parade.
The Google doodle commemorates 73 years ago when the Indian Constitution came into effect, making India an independent republic. The Indian Constitution was adopted on November 26, 1949 and officially adopted on January 26, 1950.
India’s military prowess and rich cultural diversity will be showcased today at the Republic Day parade in Rajpath. The doodle shows elements from the parade – from left to right parade animals: an elephant, a horse, a dog, a camel; a red tabla; the parade path; a saxophone as part of the iconic camel-mounted band; pigeons; and the tricolors of the national flag.
