Google doodle celebrates Republic Day of India with parade floats shaped as letters of its logo
Internet search engine giant Google, celebrates the 70th Republic Day of India with doodle in which the letters of its logo have shaped as selected tableaus of this year. In the background the sketch of Rastrapati Bhawan has been shown. And, on its website, Google wished, "Happy Republic Day, India!"

According to Google's website, the doodle has been created by the guest artist Reshidev RK, who has depicted the colourful celebrations with the famous parade floats at a part of celebrations.

"The Constitution of India came into force on this day in 1950, an anniversary celebrated each year as Republic Day. Republic Day is one of only three national holidays celebrated all across India," stated the website.

It added, "Although India's constitution was adopted in November 1949, the date January 26 was chosen for the document to take effect, because it commemorates Purna Swaraj Day, which took place exactly 20 years earlier. On January 26, 1930, the Indian National Congress issued a bold resolution declaring complete freedom from the British Raj. From that point, it was only a matter of time before Independence Day, followed by full sovereignty."

"Observances last for four days, coming to a conclusion on January 29th with the Beating Retreat ceremony, featuring the bands of the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force," informed the website.
