Google marks birth anniversary of French composer with a musical doodle
Today, Google Doodle marks the 151st birth anniversary of Claude Debussy, a French composer of classical music of the 20th Century - with a musical doodle on its home page depicting the famous romantic 'Clair de lune' scene.

The doodle features a moonlight riverside scene with a windmill and boats, bicycles, cars, etc. as well as balloons. The doodle is made extra special with the sound of Clair de lune in the background. The scene in the doodle ends with two people in different boats sharing a red umbrella. It has been put up in a creative manner.

Claude Debussy, born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye on 22 August 1862, is known for his unique system of harmony and musical structure of impressionist music. It is said that right from his childhood, he started showing promise as a pianist with great caliber. It was in 1873 that he entered the famous College of Music, Paris Conservator to study piano and music composition.

Though, this doodle seems well presented, but Google doodle on India’s Independence Day was criticised by netizens for wrong choice of colour. It used shades of yellow instead of saffron in the depiction, while the choice of white and green colours were found right.

It is noteworthy that Google India regularly comes out with doodles for India's three national holidays from the list of many, namely, Independence Day, Republic Day and Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.
